Direct Mail Fundraising Tip of the Week (#40)

Use the word “you” early and often in your letter copy.  It is a powerful way to connect with your donor.

Use the word “I” to make your letter more personal and real.  Avoid using “we,” “our,” or “us,” as they give your letter a more institutional feel.
