Why MemberCard
   
Trusted
20 years experience
helping over 200 stations
Member Benefits has been a leading provider of contributor loyalty programs since 1990, has developed and managed MemberCard benefit programs for well over 200 public media organizations nationwide. Co-founded by public broadcasting Development veteran Jonathan Sack, Member Benefits is known as a trusted resource for stations looking to improve donorship fundraising results.

Member Benefits' MemberCard program has grown largely by word of mouth, as stations share results and impressions of our services within the tight-knit public media community.

Many donors rely on their cards to know when their donorship is due and often renew early to get their next card.

MemberCard is always a factor in how well we do. It's particularly good for an additional gift pitch.

It Works
MemberCard increases
renewal response
By offering the MemberCard at a giving level above what most donors contribute, the majority of donors will need to increase their gift amount to receive the MemberCard when they renew. They upgrade because the savings benefits - 2 for 1 savings at local restaurants are most popular - provide real value for donors.

Donors begin upgrading as soon as the MemberCard is introduced. Typically, an organization's average donorship gift will increase $7 - $10 in the first year. This sounds modest, but multiplied across all donors in the file, it adds up to a significant increase revenue.

New Technology
Innovative web platform
Member Benefits is helping clients capitalize on the opportunities offered by digital media with MemberCardCONNECT. This innovative donor benefits platform merges client organization with local MemberCard benefits and over a thousand online merchants offering savings through rewards points that donors earn as they shop online. The coMember Benefitsnation of more value and station branding makes MemberCardCONNECT an effective tool for developing donor loyalty.

Why MemberCard
Trusted
Since its founding in 1990 by a public broadcasting development executive, Member Benefits, Inc. has developed and managed MemberCard programs for more than 200 public media organizations across the country. The MemberCard program has grown largely by word of mouth as stations share results and impressions of our service in the tight knit public media community.

It Works
Since the MemberCard is offered at a giving level above what most donors contribute, as soon as it's introduced donors begin increasing their contributions to receive the benefits. During the first year of the MemberCard program, the average gift increases $7 -$10 as donors upgrade their donation to the MemberCard level, typically $10-$40 above the average gift level. If donors don't renew, the MemberCard expires and donors lose valuable benefits, adding urgency to renewal efforts and boosting renewal response.
