Do you have a Development Team that excels in what they do? It’s time to honor that excellence and nominate them for a $5K unrestricted cash prize courtesy of RetailMeNot. The RetailMeNot Nonprofit Award is presented to a local nonprofit who excels in innovative and effective donor relations.
This year, 40% of all donations received through Amplify Austin Day were first-time donations to that organization. We want to know how your are stewarding those new donors? How do you communicate the impact of their gift? How do you illustrate the good their dollars are doing? How do you convert them into recurring givers?
This is a unique opportunity to recognize how you are working with those who support your mission as well as placing a spotlight on your Development staff that work hard to demonstrate the impact of a donor’s gift but are often the people behind the scene!
Nonprofits that best meet the following criteria will be selected to move to the next round:
- The nonprofit has a process in place to acknowledge gifts in a timely manner.
- The acknowledgement is meaningful and communicates the impact of the contribution.
- The nonprofit uses innovative and diverse techniques are used to communicate with donors.
- The nonprofit has not won the RetailMeNot Nonprofit Award in the past three years.
Take advantage of this opportunity to put your Development team in the spotlight and honor them with the recognition they deserve!
Nominations will close at 5pm on July 27, 2016.
Finalists will be selected and the winner and recipient of $5K courtesy of RetailMeNot will be announced at The BIG Give presented by Mercedes-Benz of Austin on Friday, September 9 at TEXTILE in downtown Austin.
