Thank you letter from recipient of a donation, whether an individual or an organisation is necessary for giving the donor confidence that you are going to use his/her given money for a genuine reason or purpose. It is also essential to give the donor a long-term loyalty to the organisation or cause which has been served through the funds. Often Thank you letters have details how the donate money will be used, which satisfies the donor that given money is not wasted but effectively used for the given cause. The format of the letter is no different from other appreciation and gratitude letters, but it is sometimes rather in detail and explanatory.
Start the letter straight with offering sincere thanks to the donor person and organisation, and mention how important was their contribution in the cause you serve.
In next paragraph explain a bit about the cause, especially give number of your clients who are benefiting from contributions like this organisation and without it how many lives were on the risk.
End the later with an invite to the donor person or organisation so that they can personally see what you do and have an opportunity to interact with your clients.
Before closing salutation, again thank you the person or head of the organisation and express a wish to be in regular contact with them.
Lastly do not forget to put your signatures if you are sending the letter by post.
