These donation thank-you quotes are handy tools for your organization to perfect your thank-you game. But what’s the best way to use them?

Here are some tips to help you get started crafting the perfect donation messages!

1. Customize your quotes for each donor

It’s essential to use these quotes as a starting-off point that you can personalize to fit your needs. The personalization could be as simple as including the donor name – but the more personalized, the better!

You should include specific information about your efforts where applicable to show the full impact of a donation.

3. Send them through multiple channels

Don’t underestimate the value of sending thank-you quotes out through multiple channels.
