Communicating the impact of a nonprofit is critical to the health of an organization, and letters — appeal, acknowledgement, stewardship — are the backbone of a development shop. Join Mollard Consulting as we dive into the good, bad, and ugly of letter writing. We’ll also explore the research and data behind why this work matters. If your organization does a cut and paste of last year’s letter this year, or if your donor thank yous have not been updated since the invention of the personal computer, know that you are not alone.

We believe that fundraising is inherently relational – that philanthropy happens when the stories – the impact of the work – is shared in ways that make connections with the intended audiences. In making those connections, we build relationships that are deeply rooted in mission.
Our mantra is “be healthy” – We build financial health through effective fundraising strategies, organizational health through planning, and sector health through capacity building, as we believe that thriving nonprofits are essential for a healthy society.
