Direct Mail Drives Charitable Donations and Retention
A May 2011 report by Blackbaud’s Target Analytics, a global provider of software and services for nonprofit organizations, shows that direct mail remains the source of most charitable donations.
Some findings include:
- Although multichannel giving has become a popular objective of not-for-profits as a way to build constituent support, it is not widely practiced, the study finds. The majority of gifts are received through direct mail.
- The typical organization receives more than three-quarters of its total gifts through direct mail and only 10% of its gifts online.
- Direct mail acquisition is also responsible for three-quarters of all new donors.
