|You don't give enough money to matter to them. |

Pulling up their websites shows they have a corporate giving program and in-kind for medical supplies. I guarantee they have also have a major gifts person and that person would EAT YOU TO THE HOOFS if they thought for one minute you actually had money. I know you like the soft sell and all, but they aren't doing a "soft sell". They just have better things to do, although frankly I am shocked, absolutely shocked, that they don't bother with someone who learned about their organization from an Internet message board and took three whole seconds to look them up on Charity Navigator before adopting them as "The Charity I Donate to". One would have thought, with that demonstrated level commitment, that your phone would be ringing off the hook day and night.
I personally am just much more prone to fall in line with a really soft sell. The charity I donate to (Direct Relief) was recommended by some random internet guy and after checking it out on charity navigator. They have never called me to ask for anything, and just send a letter or email once every couple months. It's worked out well for us both, and I think that I'd be turned off if they started having fundraisers who didn't know me except for a random file in their database start calling me up and pressuring. I would imagine that with some random d-bag lawyer or heiress if you don't do a harder sell that you won't get anything, and that twisting their arms is a good fight to be a part of.
