  2. Use MaDpoints as part of your ‘package’.
  3. Personalise communication where possible.
  4. Send out a brief impact update by email.
  5. Make a quick thank you video.
  6. Share a short success story.
  7. Profile a staff member or dedicated volunteer.
  8. Use social media to promote the fundraising activities of your supporters.
  9. Regular news and updates on projects, including the fundraising efforts.
  10. Simply say thank you to your fundraisers! It goes a long way.
