Thank you, members of NACCDO, for work that is vital in the truest sense of that word. Among the scientists, caregivers, and patients celebrated in the visible victories of the fight against cancer, there are also those responsible for making the fight possible: the fundraisers. And behind many of those fundraisers, you can find Amergent—providing analysis, strategic advice, and fundraising services for the direct response sphere of effort. We’re proud of our behind-the-lines role in this fight. We’re proud of our 18 years as a supporter and partner of NACCDO. Every cancer center is unique, and Amergent tailors its approach to your particular needs. From segmenting your donors to refining your message to custom development of the creative to carry that message, we work to help you harness your distinctive strengths. Whether you work in mail, online media, or social networking (and we will advise you and help you to deploy your strength in all three), we put over 30 years of nonprofit experience at your disposal. The fight against cancer would not exist without your donors, and our goal is to bind them to you. You can see it in our motto: "Working together to create friends for life.” To learn more about the process of finding and keeping lifetime donors, call Rob Walsh at 800-370-7500 or visit
