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 fundraising for nonprofits 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.
