Springfield, MO, US, Jan 23, 2015 -- St. Paul, Minnesota-based Strategic Fundraising is closing its Springfield call center.
Some employees were told Thursday afternoon that they were out of a job, effective immediately. Communications Manager Jeremy Landon told the News-Leader on Friday morning that the office will be fully closed by Feb. 7.
Landon said the Springfield call center employed between 80 and 100 people.
"Our staff in Springfield has performed very well over the years on behalf of our clients, and it is truly with great regret that we announce the closure of this location," the company said in a statement.
Strategic Fundraising describes itself on its website as "a direct-response fundraising firm that combines creative strategies and analytics to provide results-driven telefundraising services for not-for-profit and political organizations." In addition to its headquarters in Minnesota, the company has call centers in Eau Claire, Wisconsin; Fargo, North Dakota; and Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
Asked about whether employees could relocate to other call centers, or if some form of assistance or severance was offered, Landon said he didn’t have any additional information.
