Writing a Successful High-Donor Letter - Part 2

In my last post, I shared part of my strategy for drafting a successful high-donor letter. To recap, I broke the process down into three segments:

  1. Your Donor: Connect the dots that separate you from your potential donor
  2. Your Letter: Create a compelling message, and
  3. You: Communicate it in a way that’s sure to impress

  3. Some detail
  4. our ask
  5. A personal touch
