I just had another bad donation experience. I gave to support a bike-a-thon for a good cause, and all I got was a lame receipt. I’ll probably never again hear from the cause again - except perhaps when they ask for money again. I want to know how the fight for the cure is going, but I won’t.
Why, oh why, can’t we do better?
If you do nothing else this week, do something to thank your donors and tell them about the difference they made. Don’t give them a one-night brand.
The Marketoonist, Tom Fishburne, always makes these points most succinctly. Both of these cartoons absolutely apply to donor relations.
