The fund-raising skyline is cluttered

There are so many options, so many choices….and everyone promises the same thing.
How do you decide which is going to meet your needs? Exceed your expectations.

Skyscraper is the first step to building lasting donor relationships.

Clean and accurate contact data is the most important factor in any solicitation or communication strategy. Constituents who cannot be contacted cannot support your cause.


For direct mail, this equates to providing certification of USPS matching standards including National Change of Address (NCOA) and Coding Accuracy Support System (CASS). A professional direct mail operation should process address information for verification each quarter as required by USPS criteria. Wilson-Bennett Technology Data Cleansing has the ability to offer NCOA matching for your prospects who have provided any Change of Address forms within the past 48 months. Additional benefit is standardization of data for internal as well as external purposes.


An NCOA append has more impact beyond direct mail. A phone append process requires accurate address information to match records, regardless of the type of phone record desired. Thoroughly cleansing basic constituent data should include address, home, and cell phone appends. Cell phone appends are traditionally more costly which may impact the number of records available or matching. Due to the nature of recent graduates and younger constituents moving toward a mobile phone as the primary contact method, targeting cell appends based upon a generational approach may provide vital data on limited budget investment.

Ensuring accurate email addresses can increase connection and conversion rates while improving efficiency and prospect affinity.
