“Achieve greatly helped our fundraising process, and we were very happy overall with Achieve’s efforts and deliverables. The angle the Achieve team took in this year’s end-of-year materials was unlike anything we have used before, which inspires our team to look for different stories in future appeals.”
“Our year-end appeal this year drove our board members to make contributions earlier – in December instead of June. The Velocity program taught our staff a lot about focusing the message and using a real person to draw an emotional connection with donors.”
“With Achieve’s help, our end-of-year campaign raised $25,000 more than our year-end last year. We will definitely be using the layout and messaging concepts we learned from Achieve in our upcoming campaign materials.”
