Fundraisers: Up Your Email Game

A White Paper on Email use in Nonprofit Development and Advancement

Email is an inexpensive and powerful communication tool but it must be used well.

In this 16-page white paper, I lay out a comprehensive guide to every aspect of email that I have found to impact fundraising results.

As a bonus, you’ll find an example of a Giving Day email sequence and schedule I have used effectively in different organizations. Feel free to copy!

This whitepaper is about how annual giving needs to change to stay relevant.

I was somewhat inspired by jidoka or automation with a human touch.
