Fundraising offices are busy places. It’s all about the next campaign, next event, next major donor meeting, next lobbying opportunity. When do you ever have time to stop? To think? To find solutions to the challenges that most UK charities face year on year? To communicate with your supporters regularly, in a friendly and concise way, tailored to their individual needs, about ways in which they can help your amazing organisation deliver its charitable objectives?
Acquired by Amazon in 1999, Alexa has revolutionised our day to day lives, answering questions, playing music, creating to-do lists and even controlling our central heating. In 2011, Google’s Siri joined the party. And now, at the start of the new decade, it’s time to introduce Percy, your FundStar virtual assistant – every fundraiser’s best friend.
But before we give you the low down on Percy, perhaps we should tell you more about the game-changing fundraising solution he supports! FundStar is a not-for-profit enterprise that makes fundraising
It’s revolutionising individual giving. FundStar turns everybody’s purse or wallet into a virtual collecting tin. There are 2.4 million point of sale (POS) terminals in the UK that accept cards.
WHAT COULD YOUR CHARITY DO WITH 2.4M COLLECTING TINS’ INCOME?
(And as an aside, let’s just stop to think about the cost and environmental impact of producing that many plastic collections tins!)
At FundStar we believe your supporters should be rewarded for making doing good a daily habit and for supporting the great work that you do. So, we have created Star Rewards.
As a member of Star Rewards supporters have the opportunity to purchase Gift Cards and Digital Vouchers at great discounts from leading retailers.
Donors can also earn up to 10% cash back when they spend at our participating retailers. Depending on how generous they feel, they can either keep it for themselves, donate 50% or donate 100% to their favourite causes. How cool is that!
We have many regular offers and promotions from our growing pool of partners to support those who support you!
