  • ALS Canada: ‘Ways to Support’ document by SOFII SOFII has simple tastes. We love fundraising that costs little but raises lots. Anyone can copy these materials, which are so homemade they are reproduced on the office photocopier. Donors will love this, not just because it tells them all they need to know but also because it’s no frills/low cost.

  • Rhode Island Foundation: why less can be more with the annual report, particularly when it comes to legacies by SOFII To send or not to send? If you ask your donors if they want to receive your annual report, why do you think they don’t reply? It could be inertia, ‘I’ll do it tomorrow’. Maybe they think they'll be saving you time and money, they’re nice, considerate people after all. By the same token intertia will stop them going to your website to view your report online – and you will never know. If you send a printed copy, you know they have it and might they not be more likely to look at it, if it’s there in their hands? The stories here from Tom Ahern and the Rhode Island Foundatio show the power of the printed word.
  • Sandra Schmirler Foundation’s printed legacy guide: You’re In My Heart Forever’ by SOFII A great legacy campaign from Canada; the Sandra Schmirler Foundation manages to tread that delicate balance between inspiring their supporters with stories about the lives of ordinary families and sharing why legacies are so important.
