Time to Say Thank You for March for Babies!

Posted by Volunteers

Thank You for supporting stronger, healthier babies!

Thank You for supporting stronger, healthier babies!

Now that March for Babies is over or just about ending, it is time to say those two little words that make a big impact: “Thank you!”

Your March for Babies success is a direct result of your hard work and also the great effort of your team and your supporters. Show everyone how thankful you are for their help throughout your fundraising efforts! And you can use this opportunity to remind them that they can continue to support you year-round. Here a few ways to show your thanks:

Send personalized thank you letters and/or emails to all donors. Include updates from your team, highlights from your fundraising campaign and March for Babies event, and a team photo. Be sure to include your team’s fundraising total, and let them know you are still accepting donations.

Highlight your top walker at your next team meeting. If your meetings are over for the semester/year, include a special note to your top walker in a follow-up email to your team, so your team knows of this individual’s success.

Throw a “Thank You” Party for your team and donors. Celebrate your success with your team! Organize an outdoor picnic at a local park or beach, host a pizza party at school, have an ice cream social during homeroom or after school, or simply meet at a local hotspot for food and celebration. Invite your key donors to join in on the festivities, such as parents, friends, and teachers. Make sure to include a mission moment and an overall Thank You to everyone for their support.

Now we want to hear from you:
How have/are you planning to thank your team and your donors?
