Every gift received by us is acknowledged/receipted for tax purposes, unless it's payroll deduction. We also personally steward gifts weekly. These are assigned to our gift officers. Not all gifts are assigned for personal gift stewardship. I've written some queries to include board, assigned, specific initiatives, gifts over a certain amount, etc.... It's not practical to have all gifts personally stewarded by our staff nor do we have a robust volunteer structure to do so.
Who in your office makes the decision as to which gifts are to be stewarded? Are the GOs involved or is it left up to the person in charge of donor relations/stewardship?
