If you’re like most development offices today, you run a pretty lean operation. So when the Chrysler Museum of Art launched the member phase of their capital campaign in conjunction with the museum expansion and renovation, they knew they couldn’t take on the task themselves.
As Megan Frost, Capital Campaign Coordinator at Chrysler Museum of Art shares, “This was the biggest campaign in the history of the museum and the largest renovation ever.”
They selected Harris Connect to create a comprehensive, multi-channel fundraising program to solicit as many active and lapsed members as possible.Read more: Chrysler Museum of Art
"The process of developing the book is very easy. Once the membership is given to Harris Connect, they do the calling/emailing/letters to confirm all information. And even provide updated information from the calls in their data on demand. Overall the entire process can be handled easily by anyone!"
Janine Kovack, National Sojourners
"My experience working with Harris Connect was great. Everyone I came in contact with was always helpful, friendly and courteous. If I called or emailed with a question for an alumni, the response was quick and efficient."

"From the just completed directory project, we were able to update over 2,800 phone numbers to our database. These new numbers and information Harris Connect updated helped our phonathon raise 46% more than last year. In addition, we added 2,400 more email addresses. The directory was a huge success for Alfred State and Harris Connect was great to work with."
Danielle White, Director of Annual Giving, Alfred State College
"As ODK approaches its Centennial year in 2014, our board felt that the credibility of the organization and the ODK Brand was enhanced not only by the professional outreach from Harris Connect to reengage our over 270,000 members across the country, but also by improving our member information for communications planned during the Centennial year. The entire process was executed and concluded with ease, thanks to an experienced Harris Connect team and the wonderful customer service provided to the staff here, as well as to ODK members going through the experience. Questions were speedily and successfully addressed and every effort was made to satisfy a customer with an issue. The office received a number of positive calls and emails from satisfied and pleased members who will use the directory to network locally, find classmates and enjoy the photos and commentary."
