  • A written summary of goals, target audiences and channels to prioritize
  • A starter plan of recommendations & actionable next steps to begin executing your strategy.
Additional Details

We are looking for a Volunteer to help us create a plan/process to bring in volunteers to prepare, address and print and Mail Merge donor tax letters from excel document to Word as we wrap up our post- fundraising event data.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have Donor names and addresses in excel documents, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have letterhead for the tax letters, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
