Thank You Letters to Donors
Generous BYU–Hawaii donors support many scholarships on campus and a well-worded thank you note can go a long way. Donors appreciate hearing from students and how their investment is paying off. A short note from you affirms the value and significance of their contributions and encourages their continued support. You may view a sample thank you letter here.
