For the fifth time in a row, Austrian Post has teamed up with the Austrian Fundraising Association to find the year's best donation letter. Eight donation letters have been chosen for the public voting in KUVERT. The race for the 2018 Donation Letter Award is on!
During the Fundraising Convention from 8 October to 10 October 2018, we will present the first three donation letters that will vie for the title. An expert jury consisting of Austrian Post and Austrian Fundraising Association executives will nominate five other donation letters that will participate in the public voting.
How can you participate?
If you have already submitted your direct mailing for the Fundraising Award and the Fundraising Association's voting in the "Direct Mailing of the Year" category, you will automatically participate in the competition for the best eight submissions.
If you did not submit your mailing for the "Direct Mailing of the Year" award by the Fundraising Association, you can complete the submission form and send it to the Fundraising Association (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 1 October 2018. Your donation letter will then have the opportunity of participating in the public voting by Austrian Post for the best donation letter of 2018.
THE BEST DONATION LETTERS 2017
Whether it's fighting against animal cruelty of working for disaster victims: relief organizations do admirable work on a daily basis. This hard work was recognized during the award ceremony for the best donation letter of the year on 31 January in the wonderful setting of the Vienna Kunsthistorisches Museum.
This cooperation between Austrian Post and the Austria Fundraising Association to honour the happy winners took place for the fourth time.
More than 18,000 Austrians followed Austrian Post's invitation to vote for their favourite donation letter using free postcards available in KUVERT or online.
The winners were Herzkinder Österreich. The second place went to the Austrian Red Cross and the third place, to DEBRA Austria.
And these are the award-winning letteres:
One in every 100 children is born with a heart defect. Herzkinder Österreich helped 635 families whose newborns were severely affected by this condition by housing them at its "Teddy bear homes" in Linz and Vienna, giving them a temporary home.
Austrian Red Cross
Proceeds from the Red Cross Lottery are used for expanding support services provided by the Austrian Red Cross and its regional associations in Austria and for promoting humanitarian international law and the Geneva Red Cross Convention.
