Menu

Here’s the link to download the first draft of your major donor cover letter.

Once you download it, open it up in Word and put it in a window right next to this one.  Then watch the video and work alongside Steven as he shows you how to customize it for your organization!

By the way, the video is a clip from one of the Friday Q&A webinars Steven does for members of the Work Less Raise More program.  If you're interested in becoming a member, there's information below the video.

Start your Year-End Fundraising off right 

If you have 30 minutes, you can have a BLOCKBUSTER year end appeal letter written. That’s right.  All you need is 30 minutes.  

JUST RELEASED

2021 Year-End Appeal Training


If there were an easy button for year-end fundraising, you just found it.

Work Less Raise More+ is your "Easy Button" for Year-End Fundraising. And, it also helps you raise more money all year round.  At Work Less Raise More, we help fundraisers by helping them do the things that raise the MOST money, in the LEAST amount of time.

And at year end, the simplest way to raise more money is by getting your donor excited to make a gift.
30 minutes from now you can have a year-end appeal letter that’s guaranteed to raise you more money.  Sound far-fetched?  It isn’t.

You can have your year-end appeal written in 30 minutes because of a new writing process we’ve developed.  This process makes writing an appeal simpler and much faster… and much more powerful.  The result is an appeal that’s proven to raise more money from more donors.

From $3,000 to $86,000

One fundraiser used this new way of writing and went from raising $3,000 with her year-end letter to raising over $86,000.  Can you imagine how she felt?  She couldn’t stop smiling.  Another organization went from 3 year-end gifts (seriously, they only got 3!) to 117.  This new way of writing was revolutionary for them.

This new way of writing a year end appeal letter can be revolutionary for you, too.

Because:
  • You’ll never start with a blank page again 
  • You’ll know exactly what to say to inspire your donor to make a gift
  • You’ll know how to ask a donor to make a donation so that the donor feels great about making a gift

How to get more donors to read your year-end appeal (so you can get more gifts)


Writing your year-end appeal is only half the battle.  Because if it’s in an envelope that doesn’t get opened, you’ll never get a gift.

So we’ve created a handful of templates to help you have the most powerful appeal as possible.  In addition to training on the new way of writing an effective year end appeal, you’ll also get:

  • An envelope template that is proven to get more donors to open it
  • A reply card template designed with custom ask amounts for each of your donors
  • A schedule for the best dates to send your appeal
How to raise even more money with your year-end emails

If you just send out your written appeal letter, you’re leaving a lot of money on the table.  You should be following up your appeal letter with chaser emails, along with emails at the end of the year. 

We’ll help you write the strongest emails you’ve ever written, so you can raise even more money at the end of the year. 

Writing three emails might sound like a lot of work.  But in the 2021 Year End training, we’ll help you do it quickly and tell you the best days and times to send those emails.
