In our business we find that human dialogue is still a very effective way to engage the donor in times like this. Non-profits can use a phone call to:

  • Thank the donor and remind them how important their continued support is.
  • Add persuasion to a direct mail piece.
  • Overcome hesitancy and objections.
  • Relate a touching story of human service more effectively than in print.

The great thing about our contact centers is they are filled with caring, big-hearted individuals, who just happen to have a gift for persuasion. If you are a non-profit looking to add an effective fund raising medium, contact us.
