As a new Foundation responsible for managing our diocesan Catholic Appeal, teaming with Letter Concepts has been the key to building and strengthening our growing annual giving program. We consider LCI an extension of our team, helping us successfully execute all aspects of our fundraising operations. Whether it’s direct mail appeals, acknowledgement letters, remit mailings or gift processing, they have proven to be responsive, collaborative, creative and professional…but best of all, they’re truly nice people, which makes it a pleasure to work together on all our projects. As an added bonus, LCI’s in-house design services are fantastic: the suite of appeal materials they produced for us are beautiful! If you are looking for a one-stop shop as well as a trusted partner that “speaks your language” and truly understands the unique needs of fundraising within the Church, look no further than LCI!
Director of Annual Giving and Stewardship, Diocese of Fall River
“The advice, counsel, professionalism and hard work that we received from Letter Concepts was outstanding and has worked wonders for our weekly offertory. Our weekly offertory has increased by over 28%! I was very impressed by their willingness to do whatever they could do to assure the success of the campaign. Their staff was always available and always eager to respond to any questions that me or my staff had, with minimal interruption or time taken away from our already limited parish staff. I would highly recommend Letter Concepts for their efforts and for going that ‘extra mile’ to ensure that the client is happy and to maximize your results.”

The Archdiocese of Los Angeles contracted Letter Concepts, Inc. in 2018 to manage the direct mail and gift processing for our $500 million Called to Renew campaign. Since then, our partnership with LCI has expanded to include the direct mail and processing for our various annual appeals, as well. Tom Wilson and his team are experts in the field of Diocesan and parish fundraising and gift processing and we greatly value their guidance and support of our development efforts.

“I have worked with Letter Concepts for many years on the parish level and on the Archdiocesan level. Their expertise and knowledge of Catholic fundraising matched with their extraordinary capabilities in production make for success. They are always professional, considerate and ready to meet the needs of their clients even when given difficult timelines or last-minute changes. They truly go above and beyond to assist their clients. I strongly recommend Letter Concepts for your fundraising needs.”

LCI allows the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City to efficiently and effectively communicate with constituents, deliver high quality solicitations to our parishioners, process gifts, and develop greater impact with appeals that are built in a collaborative partnership. The ability to scale up our processing ability without having to find and train seasonal workers is also extraordinarily beneficial. While LCI might literally mean Letter Concepts Incorporated in our office it might as well be “Let’s Collaborate Intentionally”.
Peter de Keratry, CFRE
Executive Director of Stewardship & Development, Archdiocese of Oklahoma City
“Letter Concepts has provided data, direct mail and gift processing services for the Catholic Charities Appeal of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and the St. Charles Borromeo Seminary Appeal since 2012 and we believe their service is unmatched. Letter Concepts’ staff is friendly, professional, and committed to the Mission of the Church. Their attention to detail, flexibility and ability to accommodate last minute changes at deadline makes LCI the best in the business. They go above and beyond – it truly makes the difference. The LCI staff is really like part of our staff!”
