Do you think other orchestras would benefit from using Give as you Live to fundraise?
Yes definitely. Because so much of our mailing and supporter contact is about selling/buying tickets it’s often a tricky call about asking for donations as well, though like all arts organisations we need donations – but this way you’re only encouraging them to do something they would be doing anyway, benefiting them as shoppers without actually asking them to donate, an extra cost to them.

“Arts organisations, particularly smaller ones, find it hard to do a ‘hard sell’ to their supporters asking for much needed money on top of selling tickets. Give as you Live puts together the selling messages covering enough key dates and activities to choose from that they don’t feel so much like a hard sell – especially when you can say that the donation is coming from the retailer, not their own pockets. Your technical back-up and ‘customer service’ is really outstanding – friendly, helpful and very prompt.” – Anne Curtis
