Start Planning Now for a Successful Year-End Giving Season

Many charities receive roughly 40 percent of their yearly fundraising totals in the final weeks of the year. Start planning now—don’t wait until it’s too late.

Positive growth in the economy and ongoing changes in the nation’s tax laws are providing powerful incentives for charitable gifts that are completed in the most effective way. In this positive environment, it’s a great time to remind your donors of the benefits of giving before the end of 2015.

Start the conversation with your donors now. Sharpe’s 2015 year-end giving communications are a convenient and cost-effective way to share with donors the advantages of funding gifts with cash or other assets including appreciated property and utilizing other long-range plans.

Sharpe’s 2015 year-end offerings include:YEGraphicrevised300

Sharpe’s year-end giving communications include a prototype cover letter, suggested reply card content, P.S. language for other communications and suggested web/article copy for use with your communications this fall. Sharpe can personalize your brochures by adding your logo and contact information on the front, back or both. If you prefer something more unique to your brand, ask about communications tailored specifically to your needs (minimum quantity 1,000 copies). ■
