Ontario SPCA

BACKGROUND
CCM was hired through an RFP process to develop and implement a welcome/ 2nd gift, adopter engagement, stewardship, monthly acquisition / conversion, and legacy prospecting strategies.

• For example loyal donor retention increased: – 2012: 10950 Loyal Donors (3 or more years of consecutive giving)
2013: 12153 Loyal Donors, an increase of 10.98%increase in one year
PLANNED GIVING INQUIRIES
2011: 70
2013: 277, an increase of close to 300%
June 2012 Newsletter raised $97,297, similar or greater amount raised in subsequent newsletters
One of the main promotion vehicles for Paws & Give (symbolic giving) raised over $60,000
