Oregon Public Broadcasting Special Appeal
While broad appeals are important, targeted themes can allow more specific messaging and give a tangible sense of impact, as in the case of this additional gift campaign raising funds for producing local programs.
Oregon Zoo Member Acquisition
These frogs had new members hopping to the Oregon Zoo in record numbers. The package is full of "froggy" jokes, a riveting decal and a special offer.
Winner of the Gold ECHO Award!!!
KMHD Special Appeal
Jazz music station special appeal. Many members will give more than one gift a year, if they are asked. Jazz music lovers are no exception.
Major Giving Now
We developed this website as part of a Major Giving Initiative launched by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. It gives stations information and resources they can use to design and implement a major giving program. While the site is focused on public television, the information provided can be of value to any organization.
Art Museum Member Acquisition
Using state-of-the-heart design, we created a vibrant new member acquisition campaign for an art museum client. Since there was no visiting exhibit at the time to promote…and love was in season, we built the campaign around the art of romance. It appealed to the senses – and they responded.
Oregon Zoo Member Acquisition
To acquire members for the Oregon Zoo, we went ape over two new exhibits featuring orangutans and dinosaurs. New members swung by and the enclosed dinosaur decal was seen all over town.
OMSI Grossology Member Acquisition
Frankly, this was a really gross project and we loved it. It’s a member acquisition campaign created for OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry) that capitalized on their popular “Grossology” exhibit. This was the first time we’ve ever used the word “boogers” in a mailing. We hope it’s not the last. Contains copyrighted images.
Winner of a Bronze ECHO.
Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Donor Newsletter
This special appeal to donors included a newsletter focusing on one of the Centerís research initiatives.
Library Donor Acquisition
In some instances, a personal, emotional approach works best. In this donor support campaign for a public library, we crafted a message that any parent can relate to. How reading to children will benefit them for life and increase literacy in the community. It takes books, it takes a building, it takes a library. And a good acquisition campaign helps.
Classical music station special appeal. WQXR used to be a commercial classical music station, but it now a public radio station. Here's one of the first special appeals sent to its rapidly growing membership base, emphasizing the new source of support and revenue.
Public Television Renewal
This preview of a seven-episode series asks current members of public television to keep on supporting the station they love to watch.
Seattle Symphony Special Appeal
The more you can tailor your appeals to each individual donor and member, the better the appeal will perform. In this special appeal we orchestrated for the Seattle Symphony, we created a highly personalized reply form based on each donor’s giving history.
So you want to know more about your donors? Ask them. If you want to know what your supporters think about your organization, in their own words, leave space for comments on a survey. This annual membership survey is an important source of information about donors as well as generating revenue.
