Non-profits raise money with well-conceived Direct Mail and Telemarketing programs geared to reaching the right people with the right offer. We offer lists specifically designed for non-profit direct marketing – such as donors, past contributors to political, health + institutional or religious charities, as well as households who have made multiple gifts. All of our lists can be refined by age, income, and home ownership to enhance response. Ethnicity and religious persuasion can also be overlaid on our files.

Even though direct mail brings the highest ROI, many non-profits are adding e-mail components to their campaigns and presenting an integrated approach to their fund raising efforts. Agencies who have not yet appended e-mail addresses to their current donor files can do this easily and cost-effectively so they can maximize their outreach to their donors.

We work with non-profits all over the United States. We are here to help you increase donations to your agency.

DataDale’s Mailing Tips for Non-Profits

Let’s be honest. Because many non-profit agencies rely on volunteers who are not professionals in the Direct Mail world, often mistakes occur that can easily be avoided. Some of these errors are as simple-to-avoid as using the right paper stock or making sure that sizing meets USPS guidelines. Click here to download DataDale’s FREE USPS Primer for non-profits.

Discretionary Spending Index

This new select allows non-profits to target individuals who not only have a high income – but they are willing to spend it.  Many national mailers are using this to narrow down their list count and reach out to individuals who are willing to write a check.

For additional information, please call our office at (800) 771-3282. We’ll be happy to help design the list that best suits your organization’s needs!
