A nonprofit is only as strong as the people who lead and support it. At Friendly House, we have an incredible team and community that is committed to supporting our cause. Our donors include: Foundations, Corporations, local government leaders and members of our community.
Our Executive Director of 35 years has a plethora of supporters who hold a genuine fondness of the impact Friendly House has in the community. The support we receive from foundations and our donors is truly the heart of Friendly House. A crucial factor in the success of donor cultivation is the strong interpersonal relationships amongst the development and administrative staff within the organization. We work closely to create a streamlined process that makes appreciation strategies seamless.
Additionally, we have a dedicated Board of Directors that support our fundraising efforts and participate in various activities to ensure that all of our donors experience high-quality interactions that foster long-term engagement and investment.
The donors of Friendly House not only provide financial backing, but also a source of steady, passionate support for our cause. They benefit by having an opportunity to help promote a cause they believe in with an organization they value and trust. By showing our supporters how much we appreciate them we hope to greatly bolster the affinity they feel towards supporting the organization and our cause.
Another element in Donor Relations is reporting on the impact of gifts. We have implemented systems and methods of delivery for demonstrating fiscal accountability by recognizing the prudent investment, sending reports to share gift allocation and conveying ongoing appreciation. This helps the organization appear more transparent, which can positively influence the likelihood that foundations and donors will support us in the future.
Lastly, we work continuously to remain attuned to the changes of the nonprofit sector and we make changes and adjustments to be sure that the organization is maintaining a commitment to the best nonprofit practices.
