“Terrific webinar!  Jeff was concise, but informative, with plenty of useful takeaways.”

Amy Bridge, Carilion Clinic

“Jeff Brook's has such a great way of explaining how to write a great direct mail piece and being donor-centric. It should sound simple but as fundraisers, we forget. Thanks so much for reminding me to be 'too simple, too urgent, too emotional, too repetitive and too long' when I writing to our donors.”
