Dear Mr. and Mrs. Ohare,

Best wishes to you both and hope the summer has been treating you well. July always brings a smile, as we roll into a new fiscal year here at SaveUs! John Creep (our director) and I would love to meet with you both to share some of our exciting goals and plans for the year.

I’ll follow up with you both next week so we can set a time. Until then, have a wonderful weekend!

Regards,
Joe Desperate, Director of Development
SaveUs

Dear Jane and Jim,

I realize I never followed up with you back in the summer, my apologies! Here in Minnesota, the leaves have turned and we are looking towards a wonderful holiday season upcoming! John Creep and I still hope to meet with you soon, perhaps you can let us know when you are available? So much exciting news to share!

Sincerely,
Joe Desperate

Jane and Jim,

It has been many months and you have not returned my e-mail. Here at SaveUs, we hope all is okay with you both. If you can let me know when you have some time, that would be wonderful. Thanks.

Ohares,

My how the time has passed! I realize I never followed up with you from my last e-mail, and I hope you’ve had a great summer, fall, winter, spring, summer and fall. Here we are on the last day of 2018 and we are hoping you will consider renewing your $15 gift from 2015 — it meant so much to us! You can get to our donation page by Googling “SaveUs nonprofit” then follow the instructions.

Thanks you,
Joe

Hello to you, Jane and Jim. My name is Christy Careless with SaveUs, and I am the new development manager, replacing Joe Desperate. I notice in our database you made a transformational gift of $15 a few years back. Please consider renewing this donation. If you do, our new director, Laura Lax would be delighted to send you a meaningful hand-written thank you note.

Regards,

Christy Careless, Development Manager
