How to Write a Thank You Note for a Donation

If you have ever headed a fund raising campaign, you will surely know that your success is totally reliant on the donations of community members. For the vast majority of people, a donation is made with no expectation of reward. However, it is good practice to routinely thank those who contribute to your efforts. A thank you letter can help consolidate the good feeling someone gets from donating to a cause, and possibly encourage them to donate again in the future. At the very least, it is a nice gesture to thank someone for their help.

However you compose your thank you letter, it is vital that your English writing be clear and correct. This helps demonstrate your seriousness as a fundraiser, and the worth of your cause. It is worth putting some extra effort into your English grammar and writing style, and WhiteSmoke makes this easy.
