Positive fundraising that inspires your donors

We are building on these trends

Creativity and know-how

There are more fundraising organizations, more appeals for donations. The flood of information is increasing, the time budget is dwindling. But how to counteract this? Through creative work that stands out and touches and involves donors. The trend is toward creative and strategic work in fundraising.

That would be our unique selling point for creative fundraising

The desire to see eye-to-eye

Today, people of all generations and classes want to be treated fairly as equal, mature partners. It's the same in fundraising. Donors feel part of the organization and want to be informed.

Donor wishes are taken into account. Direct contact with donors possible.

Fewer give more

The response rate of fundraisers is dropping. Twenty years ago, it was close to 20%. Ten years ago, it averaged about 16%. This trend is still continuing. Fortunately, however, the amount donated is also increasing.

You Are Epic would be disruptive right here, many small individual donations do big things.

Combination of channels as new success factor

Competition is also increasing in fundraising. The sensible combination of different fundraising channels and marketing tools is crucial in the battle for donations.

A new channel that can be ideally combined with all existing fundraising tools.

Relationship with Donors

There are more regular donors again. In 2000, 27% were also regular donors. In 2015, on the other hand, it was already 38% To keep donors loyal to the NPO, you have to invest in the relationship and deepen it.

How to build relationships and loyalty with your donors (follow up mailing, positioning the NPO in the player profile, possibility to donate additionally)

Current challenges in fundraising

This is where we can support your NPO

Polar bears are threatened with extinction. We want to create a safe and livable future for these wonderful animals, among others.

Problems NPOs are struggling with

The donation pie remains the same, but more and more NPOs want a piece of it.

The target audience is outdated (Typical donor is 65 years / female).

The marketing effort is getting bigger and bigger.

It is becoming increasingly difficult to differentiate and stand out from other NPOs.

NPOs can be assured of the support of millions of volunteers.

Why don't people donate?

Wrong timing: "I don't have time right now"

Picture of a tiger in a trap: "I don't want any negative emotion"

Transparency: "What happens to the money?"

I don't have any money: "Why does it always have to be a subscription?"

Not present: "I just never think about it"

Too elaborate: "Why is this so complicated?"

The man in the image wonders why no donations were made.
