This post discusses a couple of new ways to send donation acknowledgments.
For quite awhile, you could send such acknowledgments via postal mail, using a template in the format of a typical business letter. The structure included things such as insider address, greeting, body, complimentary close, and writer identification. If your synagogue’s letters fit into that mold, then that is probably your best option.
However–if either (a) you prefer to email your contribution acknowledgments, or (b) your template is more involved–say, with officers and titles running down the left side–you can now take advantage of the richer formatting options available under email templates.
In a way, we’re double-dipping here. At the risk of seeming repetitious–you now have three options:
- Continue to use the venerable letter templates, especially if your letter adheres to the available structure;
- Create an email template, and use it to email your donation acknowledgments;
- Leverage the rich formatting of email templates to create a highly customized donation acknowledgment letter.
Here’s a seven-minute video that explains all three options.
