The use of email signatures in charities is to convince recipients that your charity is doing a good thing and that donating is worthwhile. For a charity email signature, you could put in your previous achievements into a banner, such as “Spent $50,000 getting water to children in need” as this makes people feel good about donating when they know it’s going to a special cause. You could also add a “Donate Now” button which takes them to an online donation page. We have a few charity email signature examples below that you could take a look at and decide what works for you. The examples can be used for charities, foundations, philanthropists and non-profit organizations.
