Amergent Recognized by NCDC for Creative Excellence
Peabody, MA – July 28, 2010 – Amergent, a full-service agency in direct response fundraising services and database management solutions, is pleased to announce that the firm’s work received a gold award in the fifth annual National Catholic Development Conference (NCDC) Lumen Awards.
Amergent’s direct mail campaign for the Salesian Missions: Cambodia Midlevel Mailing, won gold in the category Best Major Donor Appeal.
The Lumen Awards were created by the National Catholic Development Conference (NCDC) to acknowledge excellence in the ministry of fundraising and to enrich the Catholic development community through sharing this excellence.
“Effective fundraising requires vision, clarity and the ability to communicate your mission,” according to NCDC and “the Lumens (Latin for “light “ or “candle”) honor the best work of fundraisers doing God’s work in the world. Award-winning entries illustrate a superior example of good fundraising practice. Those holding the light set an example for the Catholic fundraising community through their good works.”
NCDC leads Catholic organizations toward excellence in their development ministries by providing opportunities for growth in leadership and excellence through conferences and networking. As the United States' largest association of religious philanthropies, NCDC affirms the mission of each of its members by working for and with them as fundraisers.
