They blow their horns over their fund raising efficiency of .02; but nevertheless I find them wasteful. I am a monthly donor. Yet they still send mailing after mailing after mailing asking for funds. I have only so much. Furthermore, these mailings are expensive. Full color spreads and postage are not cheap, even at the "charitable organization" rate.
Just the other day I got another mailing which contained a nickel. They asked me to send it back. This is absolutely a waste! Not only does it add 5 cents a copy to the mailing cost, it creates an administrative burden in dealing with whatever nickels are returned. Sadly, most nickels wind up in pocket change or in the trash. What a waste!
It is fund raising foolishness such as this that drives me nuts, causing me serious concern about continued donations to these people.
Please try to understand my point. The tiny amount I can give has already been spent on useless, wasteful fundraising. Tell me ___why I should continue?
My suggestions are:
Flag monthly/regular donor records - don't send more mailings --- this is wasteful --- they already give.
Don't put my donated money (nickels) in future mailings.
