Donors will receive an automatic “Thank you” email and gift receipt from Lehigh- but make sure they get one from you too! A handwritten note or card goes a long way, and the Alumni Relations Office will help to provide materials as needed. All donors should receive a thank you card within 1-2 weeks of project completion.
What to include:
- Thank them for their support
- Give them a few examples of how their support helped you. Ex. “You’re gift helped us by being able to purchase the building materials.”
- Give them an update on how the project is progressing or the aftermath
- Provide pictures of your completed project (if applicable)
Once all ‘Thank You’s’ are filled out, please return all completed cards to the Alumni Relations Office to be sent out to donors.
