It’s a simple equation proven by the Heart of England Community Foundation – the more supporters you sign up for Give as you Live, the more your fundraising targets will benefit.
The Foundation signed up with Give as you Live just a few weeks ago but their innovation and enthusiasm is already paying off. From identifying key local events to working with corporate partners, they are really embracing what Give as You Live can do for their causes.
The Heart of England Community Foundation manages a variety of funds which are given as small grants to groups and projects based in the Coventry and Warwickshire area. It aims to sustain local communities with support from funders and partners. Theatre sessions for young people with learning difficulties and financial support for a local allotment group have been recent successes.
So how is the Foundation getting supporters shopping online for them?
- Charity dog walk as a partner at The Pet Show, a major national event taking place in their area. 87 online shoppers in just one day – just the two-legged variety!
- Attending the freshers’ fairs at both their local universities – Coventry and Warwick.
- Using the FREE Christmas marketing materials from Give as you Live
- Working with their corporate donors to spread the word
Here at Give as you Live, we wish the Foundation well with all their great efforts so soon after signing up. Local communities in Coventry and Warwickshire will soon benefit as their supporter numbers turn into funds raised without costing those supporters a penny extra.
