YOU CAN COUNT ON OUR 40-PLUS YEARS OF EXPERTISE TO HELP YOU EXCEED YOUR FUNDRAISING GOALS

Welcome to ZA Fundraising

Zachry Associates has made a very substantial difference in our fundraising, and it’s all been through their creative ideas. They developed a new approach for our annual Archbishop’s Appeal that centers on fully personalized letter packages and greater segmentation. Those ideas have led to greater donor participation and a record amount of funds raised to help the outreach efforts of the Archdiocese of San Antonio.

​Consider some of these successful efforts, and decide if you can use the same kind of help from Zachry Associates…

  • A direct mail appeal with 113% return and more than $265,000 raised from a major donor segment of 135 donors who made 153 gifts for a regional religious client.
  • Added 1,000 new donors for a social welfare client with an average gift of $98.33 for each of the last three years from an unbeatable donor acquisition control package.
  • An overall combined five-year 39% response rate from a large donor segment of a university-related client.
  • Cost of only $.03 to raise a dollar in an annual fund campaign that raised $2 million. ​The mailing consisted of an initial letter and two follow-up letters to a list of targeted donors and non-donor prospects.
  • More than $660,000 raised from two direct mail efforts for a university client using a unique donor premium that resulted in 2,334 gifts from alumni with an average gift of $282.78.
  • A planned giving mailing for a health care-related client generated responses from almost 350 donors and uncovered 15 new will and trust notifications.

​You are undoubtedly well-acquainted with some of your major donors and others who attend your organization’s special events. But what about all those donors you’ve never met, the ones to whom you mail appeals? In these days of intense competition, you need to know who they are!

Would having a donor profile of your donor base help you and your board get a true sense of just who your donors are? Would it help you to know if…

…a large portion of your donors have income-producing assets of $1 million or more?
…the net worth of 20% of your donor file averages more than $500,000?
…many of your donors have an average of five credit cards?

Could you use this information to grow your monthly donor efforts? You can use such a donor profile to find new donors who have similar demographics. And you can get a donor profile report from Zachry Associates in just a few days at a very reasonable cost. We don’t even need the names of your donors or their giving history—just their addresses.

In a matter of days you’ll have a report that will give you valuable and actionable information about your donor base. This is an essential tool you can use to grow your donor base.

​It’s Your Call

​Do you have an upcoming annual fund campaign, donor acquisition effort or a major donor mailing that needs proven ideas to help you generate a greater return on your investment? What about a quick turnaround on an appeal you must have in the mail in the next three weeks? We can help!

Just give me a call or send me an email and let’s talk about your needs and how we might work together. I hope to hear from you soon!
