Justgiving offers customised online event fundraising service

first_imgJustgiving offers customised online event fundraising service Justgiving is developing two further customised solutions for the Leukaemia Research Fund for launch later this month – the child-safe Big Bikeathon site and Alastair Campbell’s London Triathlon challenge site.The new customisation service offers other options as well as design. Charities can now capture additional data, beyond postal and e-mail addresses, from their sponsored event fundraisers and/or donors, to help gain a deeper understanding of supporters’ profiles and attitudes.They can also customise donation confirmation screens and automatic e-mails. Creative use of these facilities could help fundraisers to drive more traffic to a their charity’s Web site, or raise awareness of other aspects of its work among new donors.Most importantly, the customised site will be hosted on a dedicated domain belonging to the charity, rather than a sub-directory at the justgiving.com address. This ensures that the Web address of individual fundraising pages reflect the charity’s brand and, equally importantly, all automatic e-mails originate from that domain and not that justgiving.com.Justgiving’s media officer James Grieve said: “Because customisation options are built onto Justgiving’s existing fundraising platform, the service is faster and considerably cheaper than building a micro-site from scratch. Every site comes with our highly regarded telephone and e-mail customer support service, so charities can be sure its supporters are in safe hands.”Future customised services from Justgiving include registration, earmarked appeals and membership. Since it launched in 2001, Justgiving has handled over £5 million in donations to 550 charities.

One to one marketing – myth or reality for fundraisers?

If so, how can IT help? These questions will be addressed at the next IT special interest group meeting. Three speakers will make presentations – two presenting case studies on how charities are indeed using software and techniques to forward one-to-one communications, and one speaker who takes a more sceptical view.

Staff from RNLI and their agency Computastat Group will explain how they are improving donor communications. RNLI has a database of approximately 200,000 members. With help from the Computastat Group, they have introduced a data-driven, context-sensitive personalisation facility that they believe puts them at the forefront of this kind of communication with members. The spakers will show how this works, what benefits have been gained and how other organisations could apply this system to their communications.Andrew Thomas, Chief Executive of Charity Consultants Ltd, wonders if all of this is really necessary. An experienced capital appeal and major gift fundraiser, he will argue that the only way to communicate one-to-one is by doing it in person.The event will be held on 28 September 2004 from 18.00 at the offices of Intellect, 20 Red Lion Street London WC1 and is sponsored by The Computastat Group. The event costs ₤8 for Institute of Fundraising members number and ₤12 for anyone else.

Mecca donates rugby match shirt advertising to Whizz-Kidz

MeccaBingo.com, the current sponsor of rugby league team Wigan Warriors, is donating the shirt sponsorship for the team’s match against the French team the Catalan Dragons to Whizz-Kidz, its official charity partner.Under French advertising legislation gaming brands such as MeccaBingo.com are prohibited from advertising. The decision was taken not to resell the shirt sponsorship for the match and instead donate the opportunity to a charity.Whizz-Kidz thus becomes the first charity to ‘sponsor’ the main shirts of a Super League club. In addition to the publicity gained from the sponsorship, the shirts will be auctioned after the match: with only 40 shirts produced, it is expected that fans will be prepared to pay high sums for them.The shirts will be auctioned off via the club website, eBay and other fundraising channels.As part of the ongoing ‘Mecca Wheel Difference’ campaign, Mecca clubs across the UK raised over £286,000 in 2008.Mick Hogan, Chief Executive of Wigan Warriors, said: “We are delighted that we can promote the Whizz-Kidz charity on our shirts for Monday’s game at Catalans Dragons. The charity does some wonderful work and the Whizz-Kidz name will be seen by a big television audience as the game is being shown live on Sky Sports. It is a great idea and money will also be raised by the auctioning of these one off shirts.”www.whizz-kidz.org.uk Tagged with: corporate About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
