The Love Team will have regular contact with our donors, especially the monthly donors, via e-mail, letter or phone, helping them feel plugged in, vital and cherished. This contact will help to share the impact of our programs with donors, increasing the mindfulness of their donation. This contact will include recognition of their birthdays/anniversaries, holiday good wishes, and touch points at other key times of the year. It will also let our donors know in advance about key campaigns that are about to launch, giving them the inside track on programs and initiatives. Donor Care Specialists should be available to do one-to-ones and group dance cards at conferences with donors who might have questions or want to have more information about programs. In addition, Donor Care Specialists should gently share with donors additional giving opportunities as they arise and encourage them to advance to the next level of giving as they are able.
