For example, over recent years charities in various countries have learned that the telephone can work well with email messages: some recipients will prefer to give over the phone in response to such an appeal, rather than online. Similarly, universities in particular have found that email messages alerting supporters to an upcoming telephone fundraising call can improve the response rate.The first three suppliers to feature in this category are Personal Telephone Fundraising, GoGen, and MSI Charity Telemarketing.Personal Telephone Fundraising offer the three principal telephone fundraising services of donor acquisition, donor development, and donor retention, together with other specialist services, many of which they say they have pioneered.GoGen offer donor acquisition and development, together with specialist services such as legacy, corporate prospecting, market research, and new Gift Aid declaration.
