Even though I’m a Raiser’s Edge consultant and not a fundraising consultant in the purest sense, I’m often asked about recommended best practices for things like gift processing and especially, the acknowledgement process. Having spent over a dozen years working intimately with non-profits of all types to maximize their use of the Raiser’s Edge, I’ve picked up a few things along the way, so I was thrilled when my good friend Marc Pitman shared this post by Clare Alexrad, J.D., CFRE, on the topic of achieving timely acknowledgement of gifts. She provides hard evidence from reliable industry experts like AFP to make her case about the impact and importance of timely acknowledgement. I really like what she has to say.

Take a look and let me know if you agree.
