“Donor Compass™ has been a really valuable tool for STARS. It highlighted
some of the untapped potential of our database in ways we hadn’t
previously considered and helped us look at many of our donors in a new
light. Our legacy giving and major gift teams are excited about how this
will help them increase donation revenues both now and well into the

“It has been successful beyond our wildest dreams. Since we began the
program back in August of 2010 we’ve discovered over 154 planned gifts that were already in place and we now have over 3,400 households who expressed an interest in knowing more about creating a planned gift. All of this from an original base of 17,500 households.”

“Donor Compass™ enabled us to take our planned giving program to a whole new level. It significantly increased the number of gift commitments to our organization; it expanded the skills of our fundraising staff and strengthened our overall planned giving effort. Donor Compass™ worked with us every step of the way and customized our campaign to reflect Hopelink’s mission and goals. This campaign has been a very positive experience with tremendous results.” Hopelink

“We recently partnered with Donor Compass™ to complete 2 annual/current
giving phone campaigns. The service from Donor Compass™ was, as always,
excellent. Gail was wonderful to work with on the Donor Compass™ part and
Katelyn and Jessica provided great service when running the campaigns. We
say in our office that we feel like their only client … and we were more
than satisfied with the results. We are already planning another campaign
next year.”

“Through Donor Compass™ and their proven bequest marketing efforts, our
Foundation’s Planned Giving Program and Legacy Society grows at a much
faster rate than through our traditional prospecting methods. Donors are
able to complete their legacy planning with our Foundation sooner since we
have identified their needs with specific timelines. Their campaigns have
made it possible for us to enhance our planned giving capability for
future revenues for our Hospital.”

“Donor Compass™ exceeded all expectations – not only in terms of results
but also in terms of how they conversed with our alumni. The Legacy
Leaders callers were thoughtful, articulate and engaged with the people
they called. The results speak for themselves.”

“Results of St. Michael’s Hospital’s planned giving campaign truly
exceeded our expectations! Our donors’ generosity and commitment to the
future of St. Michael’s Hospital are demonstrated by the success of this
campaign. With the support of excellent telemarketing individuals and
amazing creative consultants, we were able to develop a compelling case
which will continue our planned giving efforts. We have received a number
of planned and cash gifts that would not have occurred at this time
without this campaign. I would highly recommend this program.”

“The feedback on the callers was very positive; in fact, there weren’t
any negative comments. Of all the individuals called, 12% agreed to
include us in their estate plans, which was higher than anticipated and
four times what we could have achieved with our current staff

program truly became part of our team. Their care and concern for our
donors, and their prompt follow up on questions, ensured that our donors
were dealt with in a compassionate and respectful manner.”
