"The Alumni Directory is a polished product that projects a positive image of our school and the Educational Foundation. It also is an excellent resource for alumni wishing to renew old acquaintances or in planning reunions."
David Victor, President of the Education Foundation, Lake Park High School
“I have a large portfolio of potential special giving donors, and Harris Connect was very instrumental in helping me create a more manageable and targeted list. In just two months they were able to reach out to virtually everyone, and have a number of productive conversations to measure interest in supporting the School of Medicine financially. In the end, they delivered very valuable information on some of our best prospects. I’ve already received one sizeable gift as a result of their work – and while it’s likely I would have identified and developed this donor over time, the fact is I was able to connect with her much sooner than I might have.”
Colleen Hill Sporar, MNO, Office of Medical Development & External Affairs, School of Medicine, Case Western Reserve University
“This is the second time I have worked with Harris Connect on updating our alumni directory. It has proven to be an extremely effective way for us to not only update alumni records, but to really help us identify our alumni, where they are at and help our staff do our job as alumni and development professionals.
“We have been able to identify different alumni to highlight in our alumni newsletter as well as target and promote regional alumni events. We are currently in the midst of a 25 million dollar capital campaign. With the help of our new alumni directory, this will help us reach our alumni, share our story and vision and in the end reach our goal.
“The directory has been improved to feature very interesting alumni updates and the electronic version is something I use daily. I continually get alumni feedback that the directory is something that they cherish because it allows alumni different options of locating lost friends when people give up their land lines.”
Tom Betz, Director of Advancement, Bishop Heelan Catholic Schools
"I have hired Harris Connect at three universities, Humboldt State, Santa Clara, and CSU Northridge. I inherited them at Trinity U of San Antonio, and when I became VP at each of the three other schools, one of my first moves was to bring them on board. They moved the numbers across the board, big time! If you hire them and do what they say your numbers will go up; credit card gifts, first time donors, recurring gifts, average gift size, total donors, total raised."
Robert D. Gunsalus, Ph.D., Vice President for Advancement and President of the Foundation, California State University, Northridge
"The Harris Connect team was not only easy to work with, but they were all very helpful with any questions or concerns we had. They made the entire process a positive experience."
