In appreciation for all you do to make the world a better place, J. Milito & Associates would like to give you 100 free donor "Thank You" Calls.


Because we know that saying "Thank You" is an essential part of your fund development activities.

  • Within 48 hours of receiving a gift, send a gift acknowledgement. (Remember: a receipt is not a Thank You).
  • Within two weeks of receiving a gift, send a personal “Thank You” note (hand signed and written if possible).
  • Before asking for another gift, call your donors (all of them) just to say "Thank You".

Research upon research tells us that donors who are truly and sincerely thanked (more than once) are at least 50% more likely to pledge again in the following year. And donors who receive a personal thank you call, are even more inclined to give again.

J. Milito & Associates wants to help you tell your donors that they truly make a difference -- to the children, the hungry, the students, the sick and frail, the parishioners, and the faithful.

During January, if you sign up for a new “Thank You” Call campaign with at least 100 donors, we will give you 100 free “Thank You” Calls. In other words, you get 200 Thank You Calls for the price of 100.

Contact us before January 31st for your free gift.

Remember, a phone call is a very special way to say "Thank You" to your donors. Your donors will be touched! And your retention rates will soar.

Happy New Year!

P.S. Here's A special New Year’s bonus:
