Donor Relations

Donor Relations in this context includes two parallel concepts: donor stewardship and fund stewardship. Acknowledgement, recognition, and sustained contact and communication with donors after they give constitute donor stewardship. Among the elements are receipts, thank you letters, materials explaining perquisites, membership cards, decals, certificates, awards, donor wall, donor rolls, events, and personal visits. Fund stewardship denotes exercising sound fiduciary responsibility for the investment, expenditure and use of donations, and letting the donor know how and what you have done with their contribution.
