This is a quote that I used on a photo of an event just this morning. How could I revise it to use better donor/ volunteer language? "HUGE THANK YOU to Larina Piercefor speaking with our families last night about the IEP process. You are an outstanding ally in our community, and we appreciate you so much. We look forward to doing another session like this in the near future! #Collaboration #CommunityPartnersROCK 💙💛"

Does that newsletter go to your entire database? Do you have a second newsletter showing upcoming programming?

How many mailings with newsletters do you do a year?

How do you delegate a project of this magnitude (I.E. who does the newsletter vs the phone calls vs the coffee dates, acknowledgement videos)? Is this just a staff effort or are the Board members involved in these efforts ?

We used a video this year at the end of our walk! Submissions from team captains it was well received.

Are you families responsive to a call for member spotlights and family stories? How do you ask them to provide the information needed?

How do we encourage and thank donors that do NOT like being publicly or even privately recognized?
Evanthia Brillhart, Down Syndrome Association of Central Ohio
01:13:30
Are handwritten personal thank you notes still a good way to thank a donor? We do this after every event for sponsors and donors over $500.
