Last year at the DMA Nonprofit Federation's 2012 New York Nonprofit, American Bible Society's Kim Carter and Stratmark's Max Bunch shared a case study on how the organization uncovered major donors in its mass marketing files.

American Bible Society, a faith-based organization dedicated to bringing the message of the Bible around the world, is one of the three featured organizations at Engage.

Wow! Who ever thought the Gold Awards could be so exciting? The sun was setting on judgement day, and we had a tie for Package of the Year. A first! So, I polled our four judges — Steve Froehlich, director of development analytics at the ASPCA; Tim O’Leary, vice president of McPherson Associates; Paul Bobnak, director of North American Publishing Co.’s Who’s Mailing What!
