It’s here, the Season of Gratitude and Thanksgiving. Can you feel it in the air? Despite all differences that exist in our world today, there is typically a shift in attitudes for many as the holiday’s approach. I’d like to think that more and more people develop a kinder, gentler spirit. Perhaps it’s the anticipation of year-end festivities or the excitement of a new year and all the dreams waiting to be fulfilled. Whatever it is, I love and look forward to it with bated breath.

In the spirit of gratitude, we are sharing 30 ideas that you can implement to show your donors how much you appreciate their support. Where would we be without their generosity throughout the year? So now is a great time to take a moment and let them know that they are making a difference in our world. Show them the impact they make through words, pictures, videos, and yes, even numbers. 

Put a twist on some of the ideas and remember that your team and your volunteers. Remember, they are the engine that keeps your objectives moving forward. They share your passion for changing lives and show up committed even during the challenging days.

Before I close out, I want to THANK YOU! For every email, comment, direct message, and phone call, thank you.  Thank you to everyone that is supporting this publication by sharing it with friends and colleagues. In the words of William Shakespeare:
