Why is a Welcome Series so important for nonprofits to engage donors?
Care2 recently released a Welcome Series Toolkit to help you navigate the important first steps in engaging potential donors for your nonprofit.
A Welcome Series is a series of emails to welcome a new email subscriber to your organization.

Additionally, welcome emails are four times more likely to be opened and five times more likely to get click throughs.
