Writing a catchy and creative subject line will help grab the attention of an email recipient to draw them into your appeal. It isn’t easy to penetrate the inbox of someone who receives hundreds of messages each day and walk away with a donation, so writing a creative and compelling subject line helps draw in their attention to your content. I’ve compiled 374 of the best REAL nonprofit email appeal subject lines from last year’s final quarter – from Giving Tuesday through the end of the giving season. Use these as inspiration as you craft your perfect email subject line.
