Help Your Donors Make the Most of Their Gifts in 2021

How to Use 2021 Donor and Advisor Guides:

  • Insert in acknowledgments for larger gifts all year long.
  • Enclose with gift proposals throughout 2021.
  • Enclose with periodic pledge reminders.
  • Feature in communications with gift recognition society members.
  • Use as follow-up piece for virtual donor visits.
  • Provide in literature racks along with other materials.
  • Distribute as an educational tool for volunteers and development staff.
  • Use as a special end-of-year mailing to major gift prospects next fall.

Ensure your donors and their advisors have materials to refer to when planning their gifts this year. Start a conversation about smart ways to give with up-to-date communications that detail donors’ options when deciding what—and how much—to give.

Sharpe Group has three informational printed booklets updated for 2021 that you can use to educate your donors, as well as your staff, volunteers and financial advisors in your area about the most effective ways to make gifts to your organization. To the right is a list of suggested uses for these handy guides.

All Sharpe booklets can be imprinted with your organization’s name, logo and contact information. Contact a Sharpe Group consultant for guidance on how to create a fully customized version of these booklets for your organization.

Sharpe’s 2021 informative guides are effective tools for building goodwill among your top donors and prospects as well as keeping your organization top of mind with the professional advisors and estate planners in your community.
