Do Your Patrons Know The Code?

I recently received a mailing from my local zoo. In the beautiful letter, surrounded by pictures of majestic wildlife, the organization outlined all the benefits of becoming a member. They also included a code to redeem a special promotion if I chose to join within the next few weeks. In my years of working with nonprofits at Blackbaud, I’ve come to appreciate a well written mailing like this one from the zoo. I also loved their use of a time-sensitive promotion. What a great way to get me to act, and act soon!
