Remember - it is necessary to thank your donors after your fundraiser is over. Afterall, you are thankful that they spent either their time or money, or both, to help your organization further its cause. Depending on your budget there are many ways to thank supporters and donors.


Some of the ways to thank your donors are:

Send a postcard or letter thanking them and letting them know how your organization benifeted

Present a certificate of appreciation. Some people like to frame certificates and display them in their home or office.

Put an ad in your local newspaper and list the names of donors and publicly thank them. This is usually done by larger organizations after annual events that raise a substantial amount of money.

Present them with a small gift, such as a gift certificate to a restaurant or movie theater, or an item personalized with your organization's logo



“Thank you” is a word you need to say often while fundraising. You need to premind others that their efforts are a valuable gift and one that is well appreciated by your group. This will help your organization build up goodwill and will make your donors more likely to help you in the future.
