  • The BAD news:

  • Direct mail is only as good as the mailing list

  • Expect a less than 1% positive response!

  • Special events require intense planning, a good mailing list, underwriters, and many volunteers for the positive results.

  • Future is web-based fund-raising

  • Online works well with youth

  • You MUST have a website, and participate in social media (Facebook/Twitter)
