A Regional Cultural Arts Organization
The Situation: A Regional religious organization routinely provides the community with multiple cultural programs – bringing speakers to discuss varying topics of regional interests. The organization typically holds several concurrent programs throughout the year.
The Challenge: Patrons need to buy tickets in advance that require registration and a nominal fee. Patrons wanted the ability to easily buy tickets for the different events.
The Solution: Donate.net designed a program that allows the creation and management of multiple events to allow patrons to participate in multiple events with a single transaction – saving time and expense. Donate.net designed a reporting system to monitor each event.
The Result: Organization has successfully automated an effective event ticketing system. Patrons are now increasing the number of events they attended throughout the year and staff efforts were reduced.
Homeless Advocate Non-profit
The Situation:An organization has been serving the local community for 40 years – providing hot meals, hair cuts, hot showers, clean clothes and counseling for homeless families. They were using traditional communications means including radio, press releases and direct mail to highlight and promote one event a year at Thanksgiving.
The Challenge: The organization has been successful with appeals to sponsors for food, supplies and volunteers, but was searching for a cost effective way to connect with the community and support more than one campaign appeal per year with its limited resource base.
The Solution: Donate.net provided a solution to develop and run multiple campaign sponsorship events throughout the year. Outreach for support expanded to community and organization is able to react quickly to current events and draw on community resources that had been outside of its sphere. Donate.net developed a strategic fundraising plan – creating innovative ways to connect to the community.
The Result: Now the organization routinely sponsors multiple projects supporting efforts locally, regionally and internationally with no significant impact on its human resources or budget. The Organization increased monthly giving from an average of $1500.00 per month to sometimes more than $60,000.00. The Annual campaign is up by thirty percent (30%).
International Humanities advocate
The Situation: The 25 year old organization works in the Haiti community to provide resources such as food and medical supplies. On January 12, 2010, an earthquake devastated much of Haiti.
The Challenge: The organizations infrastructure and resources were not structured to react to the earthquake event and searched for an effective way to dramatically increase its community reach in an effort to provide meaningful support to the crisis situation in Haiti.
The Solution: Using the Internet and Donate.net expertise and rapid response system, the organization was able to react in real-time and add to their existing mission and Earthquake relief program.
The Result: The rapid program implementation and response netted over one hundred-fold their normal monthly gifts in a way that was not possible using traditional means and programs.
A Regional Membership Organization
The Situation: An organization that sponsors and organizes regular conferences for its members that draw local, regional, and international attendees.
The Challenge: The effective management of the registration process was a distinct challenge to the staff and volunteers with increasing size of events and pressure to reduce overhead costs in conducting the events. The organization was seeking an effective way to organize, automate and track registrations for conference attendees. .
The Solution: Donate.net designed and implemented an automated system that processed both domestic and international registration – including topic paper submission. This patron support program provided assets to automate the process – allowing continuous registration – even with multiple time zone differences. Donate.net also developed and implemented a strategic plan that expanded membership opportunities
The Result: Registrations were created, submitted and tracked on an automated system in real-time. The Organization staff could re-focus efforts to improve the programming of the conference. The Patron support system handled over 95% of the conference registration issues, saving time and Membership grew 33%.
