2. What makes the Stephen Clouse and Associates method different from other fundraising methodologies?
The SCA method enables an organization to identify potential major contributors who may be “hiding” on the donor file as lower dollar donors. These donors usually only realize their full potential as major givers after years of careful cultivation - often including personal appeals from the head of the organization.
But a SCA multi-media major gift mail program compresses this process into a few short weeks. The SCA package succeeds because it reaches a wide audience of donors with a high-impact presentation. Your SCA multi-media major gift mail program literally takes the place of a personal visit in the home of the donor.
In fact, for most non-profit organizations, studies show that it takes an average of 8.9 years of continuous cultivation and upgrading to produce a $100,000 gift.
