Encouraging Gifts of Securities

SHARPE newkirk offers several professionally written publications designed to encourage gifts of securities and outline giving strategies that enhance both your mission and your donors’ ongoing financial interests. In particular, the popular 16-page Giving Securities booklet contains detailed information to help your donors understand how and why they should consider making securities gifts.

SHARPE newkirk booklets and brochures make excellent:

  • Targeted mailings to major donors, particularly those who have made gifts of securities and large gifts of cash in the past. (Look for larger gifts of odd amounts if not coded as securities gifts.)
  • Informational materials at gatherings of donors or prospective donors.
  • Support materials to accompany gift proposals.
  • “Leave-behind” pieces following personal visits with donors.
  • Inserts in gift acknowledgments and thank-you letters.
  • Educational materials for your board, volunteers and staff.

Publications can be personalized with your contact information and logo on the front and/or back cover. If you prefer, our designers can work with your team to produce fully customized publications as well.
