A Direct Mail Strategy: The Pledge Conversion Campaign

A Personal Story

For many organizations, the Direct Mail approach is to send out, sit back and wait for the money to come rolling in.  But when the gifts don't come, you conclude:  “Direct Mail doesn’t work.”

You’re right! 

The sit back-and-wait approach won’t bring about the results you are seeking.  But Direct Mail with a plan, a purpose, and a strategy to raise up new monthly givers to impact your cause will work!  Gordon West, Founder and President of KidZ-At-Heart International, led a Direct Mail campaign that resulted in 48 new donors and over $60,000 raised in 60 days.  Come hear his story!

Coach Your Champions:

A Book Study on the Transformational Giving Approach to Major Donor Fundraising

Is your Christian nonprofit or church struggling financially? Do you find yourself saying, "If only we could find a few more givers with deep pockets to help us make budget?" 
It's an understandable sentiment. But the Bible holds a totally different approach to major donor development - one completely counter to the secular fundraising approach ministries have been taught they must practice. In this nuts and bolts nonprofit fable, you'll learn how: 

  • God has already sent your organization all the major donors you need. 
  • Major donors are about more than big gifts; they're champions awaiting your coaching to make a comprehensive difference in your cause. 
  • Each and every person who comes to your ministry is sent as a gift and challenge from God - and God is holding you accountable to grow each one to their fullest potential. 
As you set aside the secular shackles you've unwittingly placed on your Christian development program, you'll lower the barriers to meaningful involvement in your cause while raising the bar for what you can expect from your ministry's champions - all while having a lot more fun in fundraising.
