Meaningful Ways to Recognize Donors featuring Robert Sellman

Donor stewardship is a cornerstone for every nonprofit organization, and it’s no secret that it holds critical importance. From thank you emails and holiday greetings to impactful stories, nonprofits strive to engage donors and express gratitude.

While messaging often revolves around donors, their contributions, and the resulting impact, there’s still much room for innovation in this area. Despite the rapid advancements in digital channels, social media, and nonprofit technology, the landscape of donor stewardship remains relatively unchanged. It’s astonishing to consider that such a vital aspect of donor retention and recurring donations has seen limited evolution.

However, there’s a question that lingers: What more can be done?
