Don’t let the glitter of Giving Tuesday fade at the close of your campaign. Follow these simple steps and leverage the time-saving email templates to set up a donor retention system designed to bring new Giving Tuesday supporters into the community of donors who back your cause all year long.
It’s easy to get caught up in the day-after tasks that take time away from donor engagement, but if you expect to retain your new Giving Tuesday donors, add saying “Thank You” to the top of your to-do list. GuideStar reports that new donors who receive a thank you within 48 hours of donating are 4 times more likely to give to your organization again. To help you cross off this task a little quicker, we’ve provided you with this Giving Tuesday thank you email template.
