What We Do
You know what it’s like when someone starts talking about a cause that really matters to them?
Their eyes light up.
Their voices lift.
They share personal stories about the issue – why they care, what they want to see happen. Then, they start to think more about their role in the cause.
They start to wonder,
“What more can I do to help?”
At CAUSEWORX, starting these conversations is our superpower
Through heartfelt, relationship-building phone calls, we help donors rediscover what they love about the organizations they support. We inform, connect with, and, most of all, listen to donors, motivating them to take action and have an even greater impact.
The result is a win-win-win: donors leave the conversation feeling excited about their gift, non-profits have the funds to achieve their mission, and our amazing fundraisers leave work every day knowing they made a difference.
Now, that is something worth talking about!

How it Works
When your non-profit hires CAUSEWORX, we become the voice and the ear of your organization – making sure your donors know the awesome work you’re doing, listening to what they care about, and inspiring generosity at every step along the way.
At CAUSEWORX, you don’t need to check your compassion at the (virtual) door.
We are fueled by a desire to make a difference, and we can’t stop talking about the things that matter most (in fact, it’s what we do best!).
Conversations are a two-way street. Whether a donor is ready to give today or not, we listen to what they have to say and make sure they feel understood and appreciated. Then, we share any relevant feedback with non-profit leadership, giving them a 360-degree perspective on what donors are thinking, feeling, and saying.
Our results speak for themselves – after 25 years, we’ve mastered the art of non-intrusive, friendly, action-inspiring conversations.
Who We Are
It’s been over 30 years since my first call with a donor. We were working with an inner city mission and I just loved hearing the donors’ passion for helping these kids and families that really needed help. Speaking with so many of these donors; mostly elderly, compassionate and generous, just doing their part to help others, re-shaped my worldview and inspired what has become our vision — to change the way fundraising is done.
I knew that there had to be a better way than harassing these donors I’d come to love for another $25. CAUSEWORX represents a 30+ year pursuit to connect with and inspire (and be inspired by) donors.

“I try to make our donors feel as special as they are. I like to read when they started donating from their file. They are usually surprised to hear. Many want to share a story and I listen. Sometimes they’re funny and sometimes they’ll rip my heart open. Whatever the case, I’m there to listen. I really believe donors are amazing and I can’t tell them that enough.”
Joanna, CWX Fundraiser since 2018
