If you've upgraded your event, you have the ability to export lists of your event's item details and donor companies' contact information. This typically saves time by allowing you to import the data into auction software or Excel spreadsheets. Simply go to your "My Events" tab and click on the "Export" button for the event.
If you did not upgrade, you have limited access to companies' contact information in our system, but may ask for it by directly messaging a donor. Or, you may send them a thank you note in the direct message.
The DonationMatch system automatically transfers all donation information and your nonprofit information to donor companies for recordkeeping purposes, so if they need documentation they may contact you through DonationMatch or with your provided information.
The majority of companies we work with are happy to support organizations like yours and prefer you not spend the time or money on thank you letters. Instead, a Facebook page like, tweet, or social media thank you would positively impact them more. Just about every company appreciates recognition by digital means such as mentions in email newsletters, websites, and social media and of course through any collateral for the event.
As a bonus, thanking donors publicly is a very important step of being a good partner and may even help you secure more items in the future when potential donors see that you actively promote generous companies.
