Washington, DC

DirectMail.com™ (DirectMail.com) will continue working with the Air Force Association as their agency of record on a data-driven communications strategy that has revolutionized the way they raise funds for all fundraising programs and events.

Drawing on DMC's extensive fundraising experience and overall capabilities, AFA will continue to leverage targeting, segmentation and analytics to identify potential target groups within key strategic areas, building loyalty and drawing higher levels of donations and engagement.

DMC takes a 360 degree approach to reviewing the AFA constituent experience and identifying major areas of growth and opportunity. This process results in a comprehensive, integrated marketing plan for donor acquisition, retention, renewal, and lapsed reactivation.

The Air Force Association (AFA) is a non-profit, independent, professional military and aerospace education association promoting public understanding of aerospace power and the pivotal role it plays in the security of the nation. In addition to publishing Air Force Magazine, they conduct national symposia and disseminate information through outreach programs and professional development seminars. Finally, AFA presents scholarships, grants, and awards to recognize excellence in the aerospace field and STEM education.

In addition to ensuring consistency, DMC will provide economies of scale to AFA by integrating various campaign strategies through a centralized execution process. By leveraging proprietary data solutions, such as Charitable Share of Wallet, DonorChoice and GeoInsightTM, DMC can provide specific demographics, psychographic, and financial attributes. This insight will provide AFA the opportunity to improve targeting, digital outreach and overall donor engagement.

The insights gleaned from the segmentation process will result in a higher level of overall engagement from new and existing AFA members. DMC's ultimate goal is a new strategic roadmap and an improved fundraising approach for the association so that they can better carry out their important mission.
