A sense of purpose and pride

We believe that effective Donor Care programs celebrate the impact that your supporters have. Our team develops donor care communications that fill your supporters with a sense of purpose, pride and seeks to bind them closer to your cause and the work you do.


Communications that engage and build loyalty and trust

When donors regularly give to a charity they deserve to be acknowledged, inspired and informed.

Thoughtful donor care communications are a chance to engage supporters, build their trust, foster loyalty and create genuine causal advocates. Whether it’s a heartfelt thank you letter or a newsletter with inspiring and relatable stories, donor care communications should fill supporters with a sense of purpose and pride.


Attrition rates are not inevitable with the right donor care strategies

Investing in donor care is essential for all charities to retain loyal donors. Your donors want to be reassured that what they have invested in—both emotionally and financially—is worthwhile. They want to know that their support was needed, that what they did mattered, and they want to belong to a wider community and get the ‘inside story’.

As fundraisers and marketers, our team employs several donor care strategies to understand what your donors want and matches that to your internal capacities so you can deliver the necessary care needed to retain your donors.

Carefully curated communications to show impact through their support

Each piece of communication plays a vital role in engaging your supporters further, building long term trust and loyalty to your organisation. We believe the key to retaining supporters is to show their impact through the donations and support they have given through carefully curated communications.
