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. All of these strategies required a highly segmented approach with 50 plus communities across the province. The Ontario SPCA was experiencing

RESULTS
CCM introduced a stewardship newsletter that addressed the above issues. The results were:
• All of the goals met or exceeded
• 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%

One of the main promotion vehicles for Paws & Give (symbolic giving) raised over $60,000
