“Greenville Hospital System has partnered with Harris Connect since 2008. In the past two campaigns, we’ve seen an overall increase of more than $100,000 in annual giving and our philanthropic platform has grown as a result of their innovative, multi-channel approach to connecting with our prospects. We are developing new markets for philanthropy and Harris Connect is positioned to help us access those markets. They are a valuable partner in our growth and sustainability.”

George Maynard, Vice President of Philanthropy & Partnership, Greenville Health System

“Harris Directory helped us to quickly reconnect with our alumni population and get updates from a third of our alumni community. In addition to getting updates, we also got great essays, photos and other responses from our alumni.”

Kate Goldberg, Director of Advancement Services, Washington College

“We started in 2009 with a test, and the results were positive enough that we decided to move forward. Since then, we’ve achieved better results year over year. In fact, in 2012 we exceeded our goal by more than 15%. The one thing that surprised us was the number of lapsed donors Harris Connect was able to bring back into the fold. Based on that success, we’re planning to go deeper into our list of lapsed donors in an effort to get even more to renew their giving.”

Donna Suglia, MSM, CLU®, Executive Director of Advancement, The American College

“In just 11 months, we raised close to $1 million. The results have really amazed our volunteer leadership, and while I knew this would work – I honestly didn’t expect this level of success. I’m very surprised with the fulfillment rate, which is more than 90%. That’s impressive for a relatively uneducated donor base and it speaks volumes about Harris Connect’s professionalism. Their callers are respectful, and their follow up and collections processes are not heavy-handed, yet still highly effective. As an organization, we’re very excited about what the next few years will bring.”

Kevin Traver, Vice President of Corporate Affairs and Membership, Navy League of the United States

“Harris Connect has been an extraordinary partner with Saint Agnes Hospital Foundation as we looked to strengthen our Annual Giving Program to create a strong Grateful Families Program.  From the beginning, the project management team professionally guided my staff on all aspects of the program, including design, logistics, patient testimonials and training at their call centers.  We found the callers to be very invested in the success of the Hospital’s mission to provide healthcare that left no one behind.  In just the first 6 months of the calling program, we received close to three times the gifts to the Saint Agnes Fund than we received the entire previous year in our Grateful Families Program.”

Malinda Small, President, Saint Agnes Foundation
