Have budget cuts left your organization looking for alternative funding? Turn to Harris Connect for a donor-centric approach to fundraising that’s geared specifically toward securing more donations and building a solid base for future support.
Zoos, gardens and aquariums have experienced heavy budget cuts in recent years as shrinking public funds are being earmarked for other programs. This is combined with the fact that traditional fundraising tactics like direct mail appeals no longer work as response rates drop and costs increase.

Our experienced callers are trained to listen, letting your donors and prospects share their thoughts and ideas first to get a real sense of what’s important to them.
