Meals on Wheels Co-op

Meet Your Goals with Integrated Fundraising

We make it easy for you to raise more money and build a successful, integrated fundraising program that will find and retain life-long donors who are committed to your organization … so you can feed more seniors!

And with Lautman – you are always in control:  YOUR dollars, YOUR donors, YOUR mission.

How the Co-op Works


Our campaigns use your organization’s name and logo, making it clear to donors that their contributions are providing meals and other services in their community through you, their trusted local organization.

You are in control of your donations. All donations are sent directly to you — we are never in the middle. Donors can have confidence that their donations are directly helping to feed seniors in your area.

You are in control of your donor file. You are investing to acquire donors, and once a donor gives to your organization, they are yours to cultivate and steward. It’s our job to help facilitate that process, but the donors we bring on board together belong to you.

What’s Your Goal?

Do you want to acquire new donors? Raise money from the donors you already have?

Direct response fundraising can help you strengthen your organization’s bottom line. By acquiring more donors in your community, and turning them into repeat, multi-year givers, you will ensure you have the unrestricted funding you need to accomplish your program goals.  And ultimately, you can mine this group for major and planned gifts.

our Services
  • Find New Donors
    We offer several prospect campaigns each year to acquire generous and committed new donors for our partners. We identify the best prospective donors for your organization using proprietary list sources and target them with proven techniques.  Our campaigns will help you acquire the new donors you need to grow your fundraising program. Each campaign is customized for your organization, and includes your logo, name and address, and regional statistics.
  • Inspire Your Donors
    To ensure the long-term commitment of your donors, you need to go out with the right messages. Our proven campaign strategies will inspire your donors to give multiple gifts throughout the year, providing critical revenue to fund your programs. We offer a comprehensive donor renewal strategy with up to ten campaigns annually designed to inspire your donors to continue, and upgrade, their support.
  • Upgrade Your Existing Donors
    Many of your supporters will easily increase the amount of their donations — but you need the right case for support and creative strategy. You can increase the value of your donor file and fund your particular program needs using our proven mid-level and major donor upgrades. We also offer additional campaigns such as planned giving and bequests marketing and custom campaigns to help fit your program’s unique needs such as facility expansions, organization anniversaries, and capital campaigns.
  • Increase Online Giving
    Communicating with your donors online can inspire them to give more money, both online and in the mail too. From strategy through implementation guidance, we can help you build an integrated online fundraising program. We offer digital audits to review and refresh your online strategy as well as email strategy, copywriting, design and implementation.
  • Cultivate Donor Relationships
    Do your donors only hear from you when you’re asking for money? If so, you are missing a critical opportunity to enhance your relationship with them by showing how much you appreciate them — as well as showing the impact of their support. Our cultivation mailings can help you deepen your bond with your donors — which pays off handsomely through increased giving.
  • Analytics and Reporting
    Do you need help proving the value of your direct response program to your board or executive team? Our analysis and reporting is customized to your organization’s needs to do just that. We believe in the power of data and our proprietary statistical system allows us to examine all areas of your program to help identify opportunities for growth and increased revenue.
