Several versions of a fundraising letter were used in a multi-segmented campaign. Each recipient of a letter received a version that was specific to them. Variables included donor levels, relationship to the student, alumni status and others.
2-Way Test Example
Try 2 mailers to find the answer to your donor needs
One of the most successful mailers, based on their very low overhead cost, BRAC USA hired us to create a 2-way test mailer. We split a supplied list into 2 like-type segments and mailed uniquely designed mailers to each segment. One segment included an emotional appeal, the other reported impressive statistics on the successful business of fundraising.
An Annual Report to Donors
Giving a Competitive Edge

Direct Mail Brochure Mailers
Cats, Dogs and Bunnys
Brochures allow your nonprofit to tell a story that wouldn’t otherwise be included in your letter copy. The brochure sets the mood of your campaign through line-art images, photos, graphs and charts. Since brochures can also have many panels, die cuts and full color, they are more versatile and add interest to direct mail packages which contain only letters.
A College Alumni Donor Example
Multiple Components for Many Messages
Several components were used in this example. Each component focused on a unique area of the college and a specific area of need. Full color was used to enhance the overall look of the campaign.
Event Invitation Example
West Virginia University’s Capital Campaign Kick-off Mailer
If you have an event, make it stand out by communicating it with an aggressively designed invitation. Using quality designers to make your ideas come to life sets the tone for your event. In contrast, if you accept just any design, your event will lack interest and will actually act as a hurdle to convincing your prospects to come to your event.
Limited Budget Fundraising Example
Low Cost, High Impact
Use limited colors if you have a limited budget. Some donors like to know that you are only spending minimal amounts to attract their donations, so limited colors can work to your advantage. The fundraising mailer shown left is printed in 2 colors, instead of full color, but it still feels very rich. The designer’s use of large lettering in headlines and backgrounds highlights the close-up images of students.
Silly, Fun, Mailer Example
Cute Stuff Conquers All
Here’s an example where being fun and cute tugs at the heart-strings of the recipient. The lettering on this mailer combines line art and a hand-written style that ties images to content.
Anniversary Fundraising Example
Use an Anniversary-themed Mailer to Attract Donations
This is another direct mail campaign that uses just 2 colors, but looks great. Simply stated, the primary reason it looks so good is that it was created by a designer with talent. Ideas can be killed by poor designers. Hire us to insure that you’ll receive the best looking nonprofit package.
