Gold Awards Flashback: Union of Concerned Scientists (2013 Grand Control of the Year)
As FundRaising Success gears up for the ninth annual Gold Awards for Fundraising Excellence, take a look back last year's Grand Control of the Year from Union of Concerned Scientists.
Mailed for more than three years, this Grand Control, created with Mal Warwick Associates, utilized a No. 10 outer envelope that shows three prominent media personalities — Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck — and a single line explaining their presence: "It's time to clear the air ..." Inside, the four-page letter elaborates: "[they] are filling the airwaves with outright distortions every day about the reality of climate change."
Then, get your submissions ready for the 2014 Gold Awards. The deadline is Aug. 22. For an entry to be eligible, the campaign must have taken place sometime between Jan. 1, 2013, and Dec. 31, 2013.
