At Donr, we have recently launched two new fundraising solutions for charities. The new solutions were developed after discussions with the over 5,000 charities that currently use our Text Giving platform.
Text Journeys will allow charities to build relationships with supporters via text messages. Text Raffles offers the chance to create exciting raffles via text message. While a third new solution – Giving Pages – will launch soon allowing charities to accept online donations via card and text.
“Our ongoing support for our charity partners meant that we knew what they wanted from fundraising solutions. With our fundraising, technology and payments expertise we were able to turn those requests into new solutions that will help charities raise more money and develop stronger relationships with their supporters,” said Paul Paterson, Founder and COO at Donr.
We have already tested our new solutions with some existing charity customers – to great effect.
Charity Escapes used Donr’s Text Raffles solution to launch the Great Northern Raffle and raise over £45,000. While Hope Rescue contacted 499 supporters using Donr’s new Text Journeys solution and created a Return on Investment of over 980% to support its work saving the lives of stray, abandoned and unwanted dogs.
“We were excited to try Text Journeys to engage our supporter base. The tool was straightforward to use and we will certainly be adding it to our fundraising plans,” - Cheryl George, Hope Rescue
“This has been a difficult time for many charities with the announcement that Virgin Money Giving is closing. Our new solutions show that Donr is one of a handful of dedicated, specialist companies in the sector that are working hard to provide the best fundraising solutions for charities,” continued Paterson.
