For many organizations, it's easy to take that initial credit card transactions contract for granted and basically forget about it. But that may be a mistake, as many nonprofits pay higher rates than they need to, meaning less money going to the mission and more money going to payment processing fees.
As FundRaising Success gears up for the ninth annual Gold Awards for Fundraising Excellence, take a look back at last year's Website of the Year from Covenant House and Sanky Communications.
Rails-to-Trails' mailer is the gift that keeps on giving. Any donation earns the giver four free issues of Rails to Trails magazine and members-only discounts on the conservancy's other publications and gifts; in addition, those who donate more than $18 receive a free T-shirt.
World Wildlife Fund's mailer is effective in that it contains just three inserts and a self-addressed stamped envelope.
