Donor Relationships

Build lifelong relationships with donors!

We work with clients to support their efforts in building relationships with donors, board members, and the community. As relationships grow, working within fundraising plans, donor and community growth, the awareness of your mission and impact all grow. This all supports your efforts to increase fundraising.

Whether it’s planning an e-appeal, working on actions of gratitude, creating your first ever recurring donor campaign, or crafting heartfelt donor appeals, we can be right there with you in keeping your donor relationships growing and nourished.

Keep your donors up to date.

Dan’s advice personally and professionally changed the way I moved forward with the sanctuary, and the changes were incredible. Most importantly, he pushed me through my fears.
