Celebrate the Joy of Giving!
Develop a recognition policy—what you will do for donors and volunteers at various levels—this helps with both consistency and follow-through. It needs to match the culture of your organization and be appropriate to the donor. Make it systematic, and keep it fun. Celebrate the life-changing impact and the joy of giving!
