Techniques is a quarterly newsletter for key allied professionals who can accelerate your gift production by bringing ready-made gifts into the pipeline. It provides a powerful way to cultivate relationships, increase awareness of your mission, and position your organization as a technical resource for gift planning ideas—all for minimal cost and effort.
This personalized newsletter program features relevant, referenced planned giving information on tax issues, IRS rulings, the complexities and possible complications of various gifting tools and strategies, and current developments that affect gift planning.
Techniques includes a link to the Advisor Reference Tool (ART)—a value-added reference tool that explains and examines a broad array of giving concepts and tools (read more about this product below). We provide sophisticated data tracking and metrics.
Reach physicians, other medical professionals, or med school alumni with an email newsletter targeted to their needs.

A PDF response brochure is included.
Personalize the newsletter with your logo, colors, and contact information, and supply a photo for the cover of the response brochure.

The postcard uses a QR code to link to the original newsletter text, which includes an easy sign-up form for future newsletters.
Reach a specific audience of donors and supporters with a concise, timely message.
Email marketing is a cost-effective way to reach donors quickly and easily with a message designed to resonate at a precise point in time. Your fully branded and engaging email will be produced and delivered on your schedule.

Your fully branded digital survey will contain carefully crafted questions custom to your organization and your specific need for information, produced and delivered on your schedule. Data is compiled in an Excel report for your use.
