Nonprofits are all around us, touching people’s lives every day. In fact, more than 1.5 million nonprofit organizations are registered in the United States. It’s safe to say that at some point we have all been touched by a nonprofit in some way. With that comes the realization that nonprofit fundraising is a challenge.
At C.I. Partners Direct, we have partnered with many nonprofit foundations. Our experience allows us to bring industry-leading best practices to our clients, such as:
Creating a human connection – Leveraging storytelling in the form of compelling direct mail pieces and digital companion pieces as a way to drive donor engagement and long-term support.
Tapping into millennials – Social activism is often a fabric of their daily lives. We ensure the donor acquisition plan targets the millennials who are most likely to engage with your cause.
Leveraging online fundraising –Think: Text-to-Give, mobile cause marketing, micro-sites and peer-to-peer fundraising.

Our Clients Say It Best
C.I. Partners Direct handles all of my direct mail needs. I oversee many other areas of fundraising within the Stamford Hospital Foundation and would not be able to get it all done without them. With C.I. Partners, I can focus on my other responsibilities while I know the strategy and product of my Annual Giving piece is taken care of. And as a result, my Annual Giving program continues to exceed the goals we set each year.

Iyoni RiceDirector, University AdvancementUniversity of Southern California
We have been working with several of the C.I. Partners Direct team on our annual giving campaigns for several years and have been extremely pleased with the level of service they provide so when they moved to C.I. Partners, we followed. Francis Baysinger and her team provide outstanding customer service—they anticipate our needs, are proactive and work with us to make changes when needed. Many of our campaigns are very complex and the production team takes the time to listen and to insure that what we need is delivered. In short, I recommend C.I. Partners without reservation.
