As acquisition budgets get tighter, rental name universes shrink and suppressions grow, how do you sustain the momentum of your program? This presentation will show how the a large health sector non-profit has successfully found “hidden gems” – important donors and revenue – by mining their own file and leveraging collaboration across partners. By looking past traditional RFM segmentation, the American Cancer Society has developed an approach that generates a strong pool of donors from various internal sources such as lapsed donors, event participants and other sources. Through this approach, we will share how they generated double digit increases in both the percentage of donors giving and revenue generated from donors outside of their active direct marketing universe.
