Aid to Board fundraising?

There’s now a software program by which you can convert a person’s handwriting into a typeface, and if that’s too much trouble you can hire a geek who’ll do the conversion for you.  This means  people like me can send handwritten thank-you and condolence notes without all the misspellings and crossings-out; but it may also mean that charities whose Board members just can’t get around to scribbling those handwritten notes ("Clancy, Please give! best, Burton") could work around the problem by creating a complete set of Board member fonts and doing the "handwriting" themselves.  Those little notes reliably produce more money and more responses than any fundraising appeal or invitation without them; will that continue to be true once word gets out that it’s just a machine?
