AFP-NJ is delighted to have Advantage Plus as one of our long-time supporters, sponsors, and partners. They truly understand philanthropy and fundraising. Thanks to Advantage Plus, we have, once again, surpassed our goal for the Be the Cause campaign (formerly, Every Member Campaign)! We could not have done it without their help.

“The City College Fund has been pleased to partner with Advantage Plus for the past few years for our telemarketing campaign. I’m confident we made the right decision. You understand our needs and have been willing to work with us to ensure our success, and we greatly appreciate it. This year, in particular, you have already surpassed the financial goal.”

“The Legacy Calls program, once implemented, was very smooth and productive. It would take about 8 years for one Director of Planned Giving to visit 1,000 donors; it took Legacy Calls 3 months. The PG callers were trained on The Hill School and were able ambassadors and advocates for us. I received positive feedback from several of our donors that were called by Advantage Plus. I am now in the process of activating a second Legacy Calls program. My confidence in the program and the utility of data gleaned from the Legacy Calls program convinced me to be a repeat customer.”
Christian P. Sockel, CFRE, JD, Assistant Headmaster for Advancement

“We would like to express our gratitude for the excellent job the Advantage Plus callers did for the International Rescue Committee over the last two years. Your accomplished staff, led by the extraordinary Gwen Paxon, has made innumerable phone calls to 3,500 IRC donors, revealed many planned gifts to benefit IRC’s lifesaving work and identified a robust number of planned giving prospects for our fundraisers to convert to legacy donors. More importantly, these initiatives have enabled IRC to thank our most loyal donors for their longstanding support of our lifesaving work.”

Your expertise in fund raising was evident from our first meeting and your responsiveness to our needs and questions was exemplary. The final results for each of the two phonathon cycles have met or exceeded our expectations. After a comparison, the results have confirmed that we made the right choice to hire Advantage Plus.

I have tremendous confidence in the staff at Advantage. It was a leap of faith on my part to begin this relationship with such a unique alumni base and I am happy to say that our results have improved dramatically. This is a process that I believe in and plan to continue utilizing in the future.

Advantage Plus is a top-notch company that gets results. They have helped expand outreach to our alumni as well as our base for charitable support. The folks at Advantage are consummate professionals; efficient, effective and wonderful to work with. Anthony and his team are terrific!
Joe Laguiniger, CFRE, Chief Development Officer
I was reluctant to use a private firm to do our calling program, but Advantage Plus changed my mind. They have shown us the tremendous benefits and opportunities of using an outside firm, when the right firm is selected of course, vs. the tribulations of trying to do it all in-house... Then professionalism of everyone at Advantage Plus, at every single level, is truly outstanding. From the people stuffing envelopes to the project managers, the callers to the senior executives, the commitment to quality and to their customers is second to none.
