“the single-most exceptional piece of fundraising material I’ve ever seen”
Donors are the foundation of any nonprofit. Without them, there is no future for the organization. But oftentimes, donors feel unappreciated, like they’re only contacted when the organization wants money and never are told who or how their money helps. Whether you want to thank an individual VIP donor or your entire donor base, Wessel Creative can help you tell your story and show appreciation via a variety of creative projects.
“Just saw [my] Impact Report. It is without question the single-most exceptional piece of fundraising material I’ve ever seen – so beautifully done! I had tears in my eyes reading it. As a donor, just to give you a sense of how special this is to me: I keep a Life’s Greatest Hits file in my office with about a half-dozen things in it and this will go in that file. I will treasure it – really.”
“Mr. and Mrs. [Smith] were so impressed with their video card that they are taking it to [his alma mater] this weekend to share with their development team! That would be pretty great to think that we might be able to teach them some new tricks!!!”
“[VIP donor] was very, very touched by his [impact] report. He has requested 35 to 50 copies so we can send one to their children and grandchildren as well as very close friends and associates.”
video impact cards
Similar to impact reports, but with a screen in the middle of this piece, video impact cards are a great way to say thanks and add a special touch through an engaging story. Wessel Creative cannot only design the custom card for you, but can also help craft and edit the video to tug at your donors’ heart strings and show how they have made a difference to your organization.
donor photo books
Oftentimes - particularly in higher education - a VIP donor may make a large gift to name a particular school, department or building. Such an occasion may call for a groundbreaking, ribbon-cutting, or other special event in the donor’s honor. A donor photo book is a perfect way to capture that special day and package it into something they will remember. Wessel Creative can build a custom book for such an event - from arrival to ceremony to reception - and tailor it to help retell the story of which the donor can share with friends and family and constantly revisit.

Gift receipts and acknowledgments are an important part of the giving process. They may feel more transactional, but that doesn’t meant they have to be dull and boring. Liven up your donor stationery with vibrant color and photography to make it stand out once opened. As part of the Donor Stationery Suite, Wessel Creative will design physical and email gift receipts, a notecard, and acknowledgment letter for your bigger gifts.
