We are pleased to announce a new feature for fundholders to receive electronic notifications when new contributions are posted. Instead of receiving hardcopy receipts, donors who have an active email address on file with us will be sent an alert when contribution receipts are available online. An email will be sent as soon as the contribution has been posted to the fund, giving our donors faster access to their documents. This new service will take effect November 11. If you would prefer to continue to receive your contribution receipts through US Mail, please contact Jonathan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This change will not affect givers who already receive their statements in the US Mail, and friends or supporters who give to another’s fund will continue to receive paper receipts.
Upgrades such as these help the foundation wisely allocate limited resources. In 2008 alone, 4,060 receipts were mailed (approximately 78 per week). These upgrades also allow donors faster access to their documents in a securer format.
