Making Each Count

Each passing day I am reminded how fast my kids are growing up.

But it seems like only yesterday that my wife and I were bringing home our babies from the hospital.

While we spend a lot of time together, and participate in each others’ activities, the time just flies by.

In recognition of this, our family is intentional about having uninterrupted dinner time(s) each week that often includes reading a book and family discussion.

Recently, a favorite activity that has spurred on great discussions is the series, The Chosen.

(For those interested, you can find season 1 on Amazon, and season 2 on The Chosen app).

It’s the intention of making each moment count!

Are you focused on the same with each donor contact and each time you get to connect?

If you haven’t already determined to and set a goal around making each donor connection count, I’d encourage you to do it now.

It may be as simple as learning something new about the donor.

It may be following up with the donor about something he or she mentioned to you the last time you corresponded.

It may be inquiring about why they give, not just to your cause, but wherever they give.

You get a very limited number of connecting points with your donors.

Make each connection count!
