11 years ago today our nation changed indelibly. For my part, I choose to remember how our nation came together in such a special way. The organizers of the annual 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance (9/11 Day) efforts want to help keep that spirit alive. Last year 33 million Americans dedicated time and remembering by doing something positive for others.
This is the level of personal you need to be at with your donors. You need to get to know them well enough (and in the process gain enough permission) to earn the right to communicate with them like a good friend would. And that is going to take a lot of contact!

According to a recent study published by Nonprofit Technology Network, despite the continued economic slump, contributions raised by nonprofit organizations through online fundraising activities continue to increase.
With expanding social media and technology applications for fundraising, nonprofits need to keep in mind the special considerations of accounting and reporting. The nonprofit organization should have a documented system of internal control for online contributions to ensure that all contributions to which the organization is entitled are captured and recorded in the accounting system.
