Mailing handwritten cards is a very effective (and critical) tool for donor retention. You can use Zapier to do this automatically whenever you receive a donation using Just set up this integration, and a handwritten card will be created and mailed to donors automatically as soon as sees the donation..

How It Works

  1. A donation is received via
  2. Zapier passes the mailing address from that donor to Thankster, along with the text of the message you type in the Zap
  3. Thankster turns that into a card that uses natural looking handwriting and puts it in the mail
