A lot of blog readers have asked me for my 2008 Year End Giving letter which will be mailed this month to everyone who gave to our church in 2008. I just finished it so I’m posting it here for you to download:
This is ‘my draft’ it will be posted on Letterhead and typeset by our designer but I wanted you to have it first. It will eventually be printed in 2 colors on nice paper.
We are also going to include a half-page insert from Kerrick, our Executive Pastor – you can download it here:
We’ve found that doing an insert on a brightly colored paper is beneficial, as a lot of people will read the insert first.
We are mailing our statements in regular #10 envelopes with the following enclosed:
Postcard about February 8 series
On the front of the envelope we are printing in red: Important 2008 Tax Documents Enclosed.
Giving letters are a great way to communicate to your key audience and to cast vision for 2009. For more on building a healthy Stewardship System, see my Stewardship Seminar by clicking here.
Hope that helps,
P.S. Full disclosure: I modified the first three sentences of my giving letter from an email I received from www.earlytorise.com
