A Fair & Equitable Pricing Structure
We are dedicated to assisting our clients to fulfill three primary objectives:
Raising Funds: Fundraising using unique Gift Safe® and Remote Gift Safe® internet portals at industry-low rates with world-class performance including free 800 services for all donor inquiries.
Communications: Broadcasting highly-efficient and persuasive FaxGram communications directed at elected and appointed officials with the objective of changing decisional outcomes, otherwise known as “grassroots lobbying.” Through the use of Grassroots’ innovative Remote Faxography® and Gift Safe® systems, even the smallest organization can develop dynamic impact. Issues that Grassroots has tackled include state, federal and local elections and legislation, community advocacy, opinion crafting, and interruption of regulatory overzealousness. There is no campaign for which Grassroots cannot provide a dynamic, powerful and economical online solution.
Donor-Sponsored Campaigns: Using our patent-pending Grassroots Enterprise Message System (GEMS), organizations including Super PACs that wish to sponsor directed public relations campaigns can do so in seamless fashion so that the donors are not required to pay for the transaction itself but may donate at its conclusion. GEMS provides variable font arrays for the letterhead section, the body section and the signature line of the message – which can be fully edited, as well – so that each communication sent has the potential to be 100% unique and which provides an impressive, business-letter like composed message.
