Has your organization ever received a surprise major gift from someone on your file that you hadn’t recognized as a potential major-gift donor? How did you follow up?

Last week, we received a $20,000 anonymous gift. I called the small credit union on which it was drawn, and the CEO/manager said to make a letter for her file. We are also including a photograph of our president standing in front of a poster of the founder and holding the check.
