“Oh my gosh Pamela, whenever I read something of yours I get all fired up and want to do it all TODAY! Anyway, I am a one person development department and am slowly trying to implement a new database, new stewardship program etc into existence. When I came to this job all we had were excel sheets and everything else was in our Founders head
Your writing on stewardship was just affirmation for me that I am headed in the right direction – however it does seem as if you are going to have wonderful ideas on the different touches you can make to your donors. I LOVED the calendar!“

“Thanks for pointing out that my prompt “thank you” letters are NOT enough. Although I am getting out the letters and making calls, I am not doing enough to make them personal. I run a national nonprofit from my home office with board members situated across the country. I had started to have them contact new members (local/regional organizations) as they joined our trade association as a way to help my efforts in retention. But I had not given them the job of thanking our donors as I should have.
The idea of a donor ‘welcome kit’ is awesome. I’ve done ‘welcome kits’ for new families in my old job and new members in my new job – but had not made the connection to giving one to donors! And the little extras in the book are phenomenal – the links to other articles in the mentions give me tons of research/resource material to go through.
I am going to implement MANY things – too many to mention. But I will say that sending out cards for other occasions is genius! How wonderful for donors to get a card on Thanksgiving before the holiday rush. We have a great communication plan and I have a contact strategy, but your WOW calendar gives me a great tool to merge the two. Keep up the good work! Thanks a million for the free book!”
