Annual Fund and Capital Campaign Calling Programs - Relationship Calls
In a market where competitors focus on young callers making quick calls in an automated environment, Advantage Plus is the only firm that takes a "step back" and believes quality fundraising lies in the conversation, not the computer equipment or the speed of the call. Our focus is not on processing rates, but rather on participation rates, donor upgrading and building relationships. Our callers have life experience and that makes the difference in Advantage Plus' Relationship Calls. Our focus is on fundraising. We don't sell software or directories!
Our goal is to treat each prospective donor as if they were a major gift prospect. Someday they will be! We focus on moving donors up the giving pyramid by assigning specific ask amounts based on demographics and previous giving history. Additionally, we send out highly personalized pre-call e-mails or letters that put the volunteer letter signer in the role of the solicitor rather than our caller. Our callers are all well trained and versed on your organizational mission and case. We accomplish this through onsite visits to tour your facility, state of the art conferencing and call monitoring, and the onsite visits to our calling center by your team for training.
Our all-inclusive pricing models offer you the following services:
- Highly personalized telephone outreach program using experienced fundraisers, speaking with your donors and prospects as if they were in a 'face-to-face" conversation
