Too often, we assume that others know we appreciate their great work. That is why, perhaps, so many good deeds go un-thanked. Grantees are often the ones on the ground, doing most (if not all) of the heaviest lifting. As a show of your appreciation this holiday season, tweet a public thank-you note to one of your grantees. (And yes, if you don’t use Twitter, you can write an email instead). We are sure that the grantee will appreciate it.
For more on how to bolster your relationships with your grantees, read our new publication, The Donor-Grantee Trap.
