InfoCision, Wiki page. Call them at (330) 668-1400 or email them at email@example.com. If they still won’t listen file a complaint with the DMA.
If a charity calls you chances are the person on the other end of the line works for these guys.
From their “Our Markets” page:
Serving the nation’s largest health and humanitarian organizations, professional and recreational associations, museums, and public broadcasting stations, InfoCision’s nonprofit division reaches out on behalf of the causes that touch our lives. In addition to making outgoing fundraising calls, we also take incoming calls generated by television and radio broadcasts as well as print media.
That means late at night when you see the commercials with the sad animals and the kids dying from cancer, InfoCision is ready to pick up the phone and take your money.
They also take a heathy percent (Sometimes it is over 100%) of the donation you give over the phone. If you really want your money to go farther for the charity, give to the charity directly.
InfoCision is listed as a telemarketer but they are so much more than that. They also do mailing list management for their clients. And maybe a little data brokering on the side.
How well does being a telemarker pay? Well they have a stadium named after them.
