As you can see, your donation letter can also double as a receipt, especially if you have 501(c)(3) status in the United States. This way your donors can take advantage of the tax deductions associated with their collaboration.
How and when to send this letter?
Technology has made it easier to automate the task of sending the thank you letter. Still, taking the time to write the letter will surely look tactful and appreciated.
If you use a donation form created in PayForm you can easily automate this task using our integration with Zapier. You can use this integration to create multiple variations of the letter depending on what the user filled in the payment form, and delay the delivery to working hours in order to make it look like you actually sent it yourself.
Also, you can use this integration to add the data to solutions like Google Spreadsheets or Airtable and have control of all people who donate to your cause.
