Your August 2021 Fundraising Action Plan

On Tuesday, August 17, 2021, we celebrate National Nonprofit Day (NND) where we recognize the impact that nonprofit organizations have on our lives and communities. National Nonprofit Day was founded by best-selling author Sherita J. Herring to educate people on how nonprofit organizations make a difference in our daily lives and also as a way to encourage people to get involved and become change-makers themselves.

Here Are Three Ways to Celebrate National Nonprofit Day #NationalNonprofitDay 

1) Thank Your Volunteers – Say thanks to the people that go above and beyond for your organization by sending a thank you that recognizes their contribution to your success. The thank you can be in the form of a personal note or email and you can go so as to recognize specific volunteers in a profile on your website and social media pages.

2) Thank Your Donors – Every dollar counts when you are trying to change the world and help others so make sure to thank all of your donors for their continued support. 

3) Tell A Story – Highlight the impact that your organization has on others by sharing a story of a recipient of one of your programs. National Nonprofit Day is an excellent opportunity to spotlight positive outcomes and promote the work of your organization.
