THE CHALLENGE

Building a compelling fundraising offer

In our new partnership with UNHCR Canada, our first goal was to begin building a portfolio of hardworking, successful fundraising campaigns that could be refreshed and executed on an annual basis. We started this by gaining a deeper understanding of their field program work so we could translate it into a compelling fundraising offer.

THE SOLUTION

Multichannel package

Together, we chose to launch the cash assistance program for Syrian refugees living in urban areas of Jordan and Lebanon as the primary offer for their initial fundraising campaigns. We worked to design a multichannel campaign featuring a distinctive package tailored for the $500+ middle donors. The main package mailing included an oversized envelope, personalized label, photo card and a lift note. It was followed by a simple but effective reminder mailing. These mailings were also supported by a digital reminder email that directed donors to a unique donation page.

Successful anchor campaign

The first mail drop of the main package achieved a 7.75% response rate and $207 average gift – beating the net revenue goal by 80%. The reminder mailing was equally successful, with a 5.25% response rate and $150 average gift. This campaign has become a successful anchor in UNHCR Canada’s annual fundraising schedule and is a winning package to successfully acquire new donors to the organization.
