What fundraising leaders say about working with TRG

"The strategies and tools really work for us. As of July 2015 (2 months into the 2016 financial year) we already had 20% more annual revenue than last year at this time and 10% more gifts. It was a great start to the year thanks to the direct donation ask during the subscription renewal campaign. We will continue to build on that success for the rest of the year."
