Animal Rescue and Welfare Stories

Monthly support

St Giles Animal Rescue  places huge importance on regular monthly donations and ensures the ask for monthly support is highly visible across donor touchpoints. With over 86% of regular donors still giving one year later, St Giles is attracting recurring donations to support the ongoing needs of its charity and much needed stable income. Further, when asking for regular donations, 13.5% of donors switch their one-off donation to regular monthly giving. With solid and reliable monthly income, St Giles’ fundraisers can give more time to one-off events and relationships with high level donors.

Marathon challenge

Gables’ mascots, Les & Gabby, took on the Plymouth 10k to raise vital funds for new kennels at Gables Dogs and Cats Home. Using the unique keyword GABLES10 they tied together the fundraising ask with the event challenge.

Online Dog Show

In this unique piece of text-giving gamification Jerry Green Dog Rescue, run through their Facebook page. Participants were encouraged to enter their pets into eight different Best in Class groups paying £1 to enter a photo of their dog. £765 was raised through DONATE’s text giving service against a total of £1870 for the campaign. Encouraged by the update and messages of support, the charity plans to run a similar competition once a month during the lockdown period.
