4 Need help with what to write in your thank you notes for your fair donors? This article is for you! Thank You For 4-H The Lost Art of Thank You Notes A handwritten thank you note has become a thing of the past with the rise of technology, but is still an important part of the 4-H program. Many people have spent their time and money, and put energy into making sure your experiences with 4H are possible. Handwritten thank you notes show your appreciation for the contributions and support your sponsors, donors, leaders, and others who have given to 4H. Showing your appreciation for someone s generosity can make an impact that lasts a lifetime. So, here are some tips for writing thank you notes: Be prompt: When writing your thank you notes, try to aim for sending it to the recipient within 5 days of receiving the award, donation, gift, etc. The longer you wait to send the thank you the less of an impact it will have and the less meaningful it becomes. Be specific and sincere: Address the recipient by his or her name and mention what they did for you. Let them know the impact they had or what you plant to do with the gift, donation, award, etc. Be personal: Use thank you notes that match the occasion and your personality. Let you personality show in your note. Let the recipient know a little bit about you or the challenges/ successes (i.e. what was tough for you or what you enjoyed while completing your project) you had with the project. No limits and no copycats: Make sure you don t limit your thank you notes to just the trophy and awards donors and market animal buyers. There could be other people who played an important role in helping you reach your goals or be successful in your project. Make sure they know how important their help was. Also, make each thank you a little bit different to make the recipient feel special. Taking a few minutes to write a personal, sincere thank you can make a huge impact. Your thank you could encourage volunteers to continue working with 4-H so they can help other youth like they helped you. It may also inspire sponsors and donors to increase their involvement and/or awards. Your thank you may even help you build relationships with people who can help you in future projects for your club, your community, and your world. So take a few minutes to say thank you to these important people who make the 4H program possible. Source: www. Lancaster.unl.edu/4h/documents/march 15 9/9/ page 4
