Profiles of donors, volunteers, clients, and other supporters are a staple of nonprofit newsletters. You can also use them in your annual reports and other marketing materials.

Today I posted 25 different questions you can ask when interviewing the people you’d like to profile. These questions will help find that special something about the person that makes them really worth profiling and that will be of keen interest to your newsletter readers (remember, you still need to write for your reader, even when you are profiling someone special in your organization!).

I’ll be sharing lots of tips on how to write personal profiles and how your nonprofit can use them during the webinar on Thursday, November 20, 2008 called How to Write Moving Personal Profiles about Donors, Clients, and Other Supporters.

P.S. Still looking for your thoughts on the 2009 Weekly Webinar Series . . . Here’s the Quick Survey.

    Thanks for this comprehensive list. I do a lot of interviews and this gave me some new ideas. One great question I didn’t see on the list is: If you had $30,000 to donate to our organization, what would you do with it? That always gets interesting responses.
