Thank you—from the boardroom to the mailbox AND the inbox

Pete Carterby Pete Carter, Principal and Senior Vice President | We’re all pretty familiar with the traditional direct mail acknowledgment. The DMAW’s March Lunch and Learn featured a discussion of best practices for direct mail thank-you packages. Acknowledgment mailings make donors – returning and new – feel special. Another option for reaching out to donors is the electronic acknowledgment, an area where CCAH is at the leading edge of innovation.

Pinching Production Pennies (Without Sacrificing Results)

Shannon Murphy

By: Shannon Murphy, Principal & Senior Vice President of Production | The continued upward march year after year of the cost of postage, paper and petrol (we like alliterations) are causing many in the nonprofit sector to pinch their production pennies. And this focus on the bottom line is having a major impact on organizations’ ability to effectively raise funds. Lower acquisition quantities being mailed out combined with cost-savings measures that effect donor response mean that the money coming in is also dwindling.
