Many organizations send a special holiday card to their donors in November or December. This is a nice touch point, especially if it includes a hand written note.
But sometimes, it can be impossible to get a holiday card out in a timely fashion. There is a lot going on in November and December as you are preparing for fundraising appeals and campaigns.
In the event that you were not able to send a holiday card, I want to suggest another option – New Year’s Cards.
January tends to be a less chaotic time and it’s a great month to focus on stewardship. A New Year’s Card is a nice way to thank donors for their holiday gift and send them well wishes for 2017. You don’t have to make a custom card for your organization. There are plenty of great cards that you can buy right off the shelf. Here are a few of my favorites.
