He said:“Excellent fundraising is about the connection between the donor and the cause. That’s why the Commission’s wide-ranging work on how we can put the donor first is so important. The IoF is delighted to be able to support the Commission’s work and look forward to sharing its insights with our members and the fundraising community, and to taking forward their legacy.”Karl Wilding, Director of Public Policy, National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) said:“Fundraisers have a vital role to play in ensuring that we not only meet the expectations of the public, but exceed them. I am pleased that fundraisers are working collectively to ensure that charities are listening to the public’s concerns and, more importantly, acting upon them.”Rachel Hunnybun, commissioners and development director, Sweetpea Charity said of the projects:“The breadth and depth of work being undertaken by the Commission shows that its output planned for the end of 2016 will be deep, wide-ranging, substantial and considered. For fundraisers this will be a great and highly useful resource. The output won’t be just a list of things that should be done, it will be really practical and useable guidance on how to implement what is best and right for donors, supported by illustrated examples of exemplary donor experiences in practice.” 103 total views, 1 views today “Taken together, the collective analysis and outputs from all these projects will change forever the donor experience and the way that fundraising is done in Britain. They will ensure that rather than fundraisers’ targets, what’s best for the donor will from now be securely at the heart of fundraising strategies.”Stephen Dunmore, Chief Executive of the new Fundraising Regulator also welcomed the work of the Commission, saying that he looked forward to working closely with it.Asheem Singh, Chief Executive (interim), Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations (ACEVO) welcomed the work of the Commission, describing it as “critical”:“The most important people associated with charities are our beneficiaries. But none of the millions of people and good causes who benefit would do so without the commitment of donors. Their trust in the use to which their contributions are put and the value of that activity are intrinsic and existential to their relationship with the many tens of thousands of organisations to whom they give their money.”22 Commission project areasThere are 22 project areas plus three that cut across the Commission’s work:the difference between small charities and large charities;illustrative case histories of successful donor-centred fundraisingresources on donor-centred fundraising.The projects are all run by volunteers.

Howard Lake | 30 June 2016 | News The Commission on the Donor Experience has announced 25 projects that fundraisers across the UK are working on to help transform the culture of fundraising in the UK.The extensive work is part of the sector-wide response to the media, political and public criticisms of some fundraising methods by some charities in 2015. Fundraisers are invited to take part in the projects to help ensure the widest range of experience and thought.The projects focus on all of the key issues raised, including vulnerability, use of language and emotion, leadership, trustee and CEO roles, how to communicate with donors, and the right people as fundraisers. The work is one of the largest re-evaluations of professional fundraising in the UK to date.The projects have been developed following months of extensive consultation with donors and fundraisers around the country.Four focus areasThe projects are grouped under four main areas:the donor’s viewcommunicating the experiencethe right peoplehow it worksThey cover fundraising techniques and channels, but with an emphasis on how these are experienced by donors. They cover current, high priority issues such as vulnerable donors, but also broader issues such as the use and misuse of emotions in fundraising, use of language, how donors are contacted and considered. Overall, the aim is how to enrich the giving experience for donors.The Commission on the Donor Experience is an independent initiative working to improve the experience of charity donors in the UK. Set up in October 2015, it does not represent charities or any other bodies associated with charities, but does of course welcome support and involvement from donors, charities, sector suppliers and charity sector bodies.Sir Martyn Lewis, chair of the Commission, said: Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

The SNCF campaign connected people with key European destinations by allowing people to physically open the door to another city. Literally, at least through a digital channel and guerrilla marketing (guerrilla marketing – a marketing promotion that uses non-traditional methods to achieve traditional goals to attract attention). Also, the aforementioned campaign is just a continuation of the great promotional stories they tell at SNCF. Thus, two years ago, through an interesting promotion, they “created” an opportunity for the inhabitants of Leone to “put their heads” in Brussels (Brussels) while promoting the direct railway line Leone – Brussels. Under the slogan “Europe is just next door”, the French National Railways (SNCF) launched a great campaign a few years ago, which is a great example of how to stand out from the crowd and get the attention of users. The noise in communication is simply too much. Sell me a story, not a product. Great campaign. The campaign delighted people, attracted attention, created an interesting interaction, which hit to the core. It has created a direct link not only between the consumer and the location, but also with SNCF – setting it up as a company that could turn it into reality. In order to get the attention of consumers and tell a story, campaigns must be different, innovative, creative and most importantly they must tell a story. The main ingredient must be emotions, experience and an interesting narrative, and it is storytelling that plays the main role, in which the mantra is – sell me a story, not a product. Of course, this kind of video, ie the way of promotion, immediately created virality, so the campaign spread for free on the Internet and generated a huge reach. Today we live in a time of an absurdity, in which it has never been easier to send your message, thanks to social media and the internet, but it has also never been harder to reach, as well as retain, readers ’attention and generate sales. Sell me the story again, not the product.
