For the past 15+ years I have received appeals to attend their annual gala and donate. One is never told how much these events actually net. There is no communication from nor about the B&GC;between annual appeals. Though I have written them 3 times in past 6 years to not send me such appeals, I still get them. No one has ever contacted me either. I suspect they are not managing their direct mail well and wasting postage and overhead dollars, using a costly and unsuccessful 'blanketing' approach. Good fundraising is strategic and maximizes return on investment.
