Excalibur’s Consulting and Hands-On Expertise Help Streamline Systems for a Multi-Channel Campaign

The YMCA of the Triangle with 13 regional branches needed a variety of fundraising materials and found it challenging to manage multiple outside vendors. They needed to create a strategy for a coordinated, seamless multi-channel campaign that positioned the organization for strong fundraising.

Our Solution

Coordinated Annual Campaign

Coordinated development of their annual We Build People campaign by producing a video (concept, interviews, transcript, writing and directing) and created annual storyboards.

Leveraged Media Relationships

Wrote advertising supplements for the Triangle Business Journal, including interviews and transcription for 8 articles

Conducted Research

Conducted research, developed concept and wrote annual case statement, which allowed for segmented donors and prospects for annual fund direct mail letters

Tailored Direct Mail

Tailored messaging to fit the unique personality of each of the 13 branches; wrote and designed annual appeal and direct mail package; and managed the printing and mailing of fundraising appeals.

The Excalibur Results

Having a one-point marketing partner empowered the YMCA of the Triangle to focus on its mission rather than juggle multiple in-house and outside vendors. In addition, our work helped them win a NAYDO (North American YMCA Development Organization) award—twice!
