Running a nonprofit is challenging work. Focusing on your mission should be your primary focus, however, fundraising is critical to meeting your nonprofit’s needs. That’s why we, at DonorPerfect, like to do what we can to alleviate some struggles you face in the dual role of advocate and fundraiser. We’ve created email series templates with carefully crafted messages and added them right to your Constant Contact email templates.
These templates cover some of the most common fundraising campaigns you encounter as a fundraising professional. All you need to do is plug in your own information, decide who and when to send it, and click send. Listed below are the categories and individual emails found in each series.
This email series will help you grow your monthly giving program. The first template includes giving levels. This is a great way to approach monthly giving because it helps your donors understand the value of their gift in relation to your mission (ex. $25 feeds 5 dogs for a week). There are also three available templates for different thank-you email types.
The Welcome Series emails are designed to help you welcome and retain new donors. There are thank you templates to choose from depending upon how your new donor discovered your organization. There are also invitation templates designed to increase a new donor’s engagement with your organization.
We created the Crowdfunding email templates to help you recruit supporters to fundraise on your behalf. The emails also provide your supporters with tips on how to run a successful crowdfunding campaign.
The Giving Tuesday email series is the nuts and bolts of your communication strategy for Giving Tuesday. It includes a reminder email to be sent the day before as well as motivational call-to-action emails to be sent throughout the day on Giving Tuesday.
