MissionWired Acquires CCAH, Forming Partnership of Record-Breaking Fundraisers and Audience Builders

Over our decades of combined experience, we’ve been the best at what we do. We’ve built large, thriving digital communities, raising more than $1.5 billion online and driving 75 million unique actions. And even in the throes of a global pandemic, we have been able to raise record-breaking amounts of money for democratic candidates and progressive causes through direct mail, digital, phones and SMS – and allowed hundreds of millions of people to stay connected and remain engaged in causes that matter to them.  

Our driving focus as two separate firms has always held steady: to offer solutions to every challenge faced within our expertise of digital or direct mail. At MissionWired, that’s resulted in innovations like the AdvantageAI digital data co-op. When our partners needed another acquisition source, we developed it: looking at the direct mail co-op model and seeing ways it could be reimagined for email growth, an effort that resulted in the first-ever digital list growth co-op – and the best-performing acquisition source on the market. 

Through it all, we’ve evolved and grown to be the best at what we do, centered on the why that animates us. Nonprofits and campaigns deserve support worthy of their lifesaving causes, teams who are hungry, relentless, always ready to think harder, rejecting the easy and obvious for the record-breaking and transformational. And so, when we saw the opportunity to expand what we’re offering, to bring expertise across all channels to our partners, the decision to join forces was simple. 

The union between MissionWired and CCAH is forged on the belief that as digital experts, direct mail experts and creators of the first-ever digital co-op we can be something that has never existed in our space: best-in-class specialists joined together to create a team of data-powered, do-it-all changemakers.  

Together, the possibilities are endless. When rapid response hits, MissionWired and CCAH experts can deploy across channels, ensuring that no one in your audience – standing on the edge, poised to give – is without an invitation to help. For your supporters who are looking for organizations who know them (see: all of them), who understand the programs they care about, the channels that gravitate toward, the seasons in which they prefer to give, we can develop integrated, cross-channel strategies that honor their preferences. We can do it across mail, email, SMS, paid social, and more.  

What’s more, our existing work with your organization will only change if you want it to: every member of the MissionWired and CCAH management teams is staying on. As you continue to collaborate with teams you trust over channels for which you’re responsible, we’ll keep looking for avenues to help you raise more and grow bigger audiences. 

We couldn’t be more excited about what’s ahead. It’s an honor and privilege to do this work with you, and we know our best work is ahead of us. Should you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to reach out.

We Changed Our Name!

On behalf of Jim Hussey and Lon Chapman, it is with excitement and pride that we announce that Jenny Allen has been made a name partner and moving forward our firm will be called Chapman Cubine Allen + Hussey!

Jenny has been an integral part of the growth and success of CCAH these past several years.  She has helped drive the diversification of our client base as well as the expansion of our digital, analytical, and database services.  Jenny is known as a creative powerhouse. 

Jenny is as passionate a person as you will find.  She is devoted to the missions of the organizations that CCAH represents, and her clients consider her a friend in addition to a trusted counselor.  Her ethics are unimpeachable, and her sense of humor and salty vernacular make working with her fun.  

She is a true leader at our company and has earned her place on the masthead.

Please join me and the rest of the CCAH family in celebrating our newest name partner, Jenny Allen.

A note from CCAH President, Kim Cubine:

We are living through the stress of a pandemic and have had a first-row seat to the growing “normalization” of white supremacy and systemic racism.  

To all of my black colleagues and client-partners, many of you I consider very dear friends, I am sure you must be exhausted, enraged, destroyed, and terrified. Not only are your friends and families at a higher risk of getting COVID-19, your communities are facing higher death rates than white communities. I can’t even imagine the stress you must be under when the news keeps reporting over and over again how this disease is wreaking havoc on the people you care about. 

And it seems like every week black people like George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and countless others are murdered by white people. I can’t imagine your trauma and pain. You must be bone weary from it all. And yet you come to work, do the job as if nothing is happening … all the while your world is falling apart. 

I want to acknowledge that I’m sure you are not OK. I want you to know that I can’t fathom the depth of anger and pain that you are dealing with and rightly so. That the wheels on the bus keep rolling ahead as we come to work every day, yet it all seems so unimportant compared to what you must be going through.

I wish I could help lift this heavy burden from you and take it away. I can’t. But I can tell you that I will be there if you need a shoulder to lean on and that at CCAH we are re-examining our own workplace to ensure diversity, inclusivity, and antiracism at all levels. Today we are also making a donation to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund

And I want to be clear: Black Lives Matter. And we will keep on fighting for racial justice and equality both personally, professionally, and through our incredible client-partners. It will not happen overnight, but it will happen. I’ll leave you with one of my favorite quotes that I reflect on from time to time. 

“Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” Robert F. Kennedy
