Eight “Thank You” Videos Created by Nonprofits

March 19, 2012

With each passing day your supporters, donors, activists and sponsors are becoming overwhelmed by the barrage of tweets, status updates, text messages, and emails being thrown at them on a daily basis. As a result, text-based “Thank You” messages are often unread and overlooked. That said, a video can often communicate your appreciation better than the written word and the eight videos below will help inspire your nonprofit to create a “Thank You” video. With peak fundraising season beginning in six months, that gives you plenty of time to create a video that both inspires and communicates your gratitude.

2. Best Friends Animal Society ::

3. Doctors Without Borders ::

4. The Natural Resources Defense Council ::

5. The Nature Conservancy ::

6. The Ocean Conservancy ::

7. Operation Smile ::

8. SOLS 24/7 ::

      I really love the video’s use of music and editing. It even though the message is two words–thank you–together it was very effective. Thanks for sharing. Barb

    Great minds think alike here is the thank you television commercials we used in the Kansas market. They helped share our message with real stories and have been well received. We are seeing an increase in foster and adoptive parents.
