Streaming for fundraising: More than just gaming

2019 Bursary

Streaming for fundraising: More than just gaming

In this session, Aly from Twitch and Tom from Tiltify will be shining a light on common misconceptions in streaming for fundraising, and what we often think of as “gaming” in fundraising. Spoiler alert: It’s not just games! Streaming is a global community – not tied to one town, country or continent. It’s relevant wherever the internet touches. Attendees will leave this session understanding the target demographic of “gaming”, organic marketing strategies, how to manage digital communities and how to create an engaging product that is authentic.

Value beyond fundraising: Recruiting volunteers in the Zoom Age

How Dignity in Dying mobilised supporters to take high-value offline campaign actions during the pandemic

REGISTER FOR #FRO2021

 

About this session

In 2019, Dignity in Dying began a unique digital mobilisation project to change the UK’s law on assisted dying. Their strategy was to help supporters with lived experience of the issue to share their stories in person with their MPs. However, this kind of online-to-offline mobilisation can require a lot of one-to-one support from organisers, and Dignity in Dying’s staff team is small. Working with Forward Action, the team trialled using Facebook ads to recruit new supporters and collect their stories, then using email to drive them to attend a webinar that guided them through the process of meeting their MP. Early results were promising. So, when the pandemic struck, they continued to scale, test, and refine the model throughout 2020. As a result, 50 supporters met with or called their MPs to discuss assisted dying, and many thousands of others donated through Dignity in Dying’s associated digital fundraising programme.

How to genuinely involve supporters in your mission and drive them to take valuable actions beyond fundraising is a central strategic question many organisations are asking at this time. During this session, you will learn how your organisation can effectively mobilise supporters to take high bar actions, online and offline.

Aimed at:

  • Campaigners looking to understand how to drive supporters towards high-value offline actions
  • Leaders in campaigning/fundraising looking to understand how to effectively merge the two areas
  • Anyone interested in learning more about supporter mobilisation

Learning outcomes:

  • How to engage and mobilise your existing valuable supporters to take tangible campaign actions by optimising your email campaigns
  • How to structure and run a webinar series with the aim of connecting with supporters online and inspiring them to act for your cause offline
  • How to pilot this approach within your organisation and how to scale it into a fully functioning driver of campaign actions

The chatbot will see you now: MSF Spain’s innovative COVID-19 response

How chatbots helped MSF support people through lockdown opened up new opportunities for fundraising

REGISTER FOR #FRO2021

 

About this session

COVID-19 changed the world of fundraising. Donors were no longer in the same spaces as before – physically or mentally. In response, the Digital Unit of MSF in Spain kicked off a programme to reach people through chatbots, taking advantage of the flexibility of the channel to trial many different ones for different functions. One, that was released within three weeks of lockdown, reached hundreds of thousands of people around the world, supporting them with tips for their mental health. The programme has allowed MSF to test how chatbots can deliver against a variety of uses, from inbound marketing and e-commerce to loyalty-building and peer-to-peer fundraising, to staff recruitment and lead generation. The team has yet to find an objective where a well-designed bot does not seem to offer some value over other channels… but intends to keep trying!

Aimed at

  • Digital practitioners in charities
  • Anyone interested in chatbots and engagement

Learning outcomes

  • An understanding of the flexibility of chatbots and their potential uses if well-employed

Hooked on a feeling: Transforming emotions into memorable donor experiences

Using the power of digital to transform emotions into donor experiences

REGISTER FOR #FRO2021

 

About this session

Emotions drive people to give. The top 20 Gofundme campaigns are driven by anger, fear, or sadness. But what makes people give again and believe in and advocate for your cause? Based on recent findings from neuroscientific research and examples of successful donor love from around the world, this unique session explains how donors’ engagement and loyalty are linked to the memorable experiences we create. With data, examples, and eye-opening case studies, the first part of this session will show how giving is often short-term and addictive, physiologically rooted in dopamine and oxytocin, while loyalty is long-term and rooted in serotonin activated by memories. Debunking the traditional myth that retention is a result of the quantity and frequency of asks, the session will show how to successfully manage memory peaks and the end of a donor relationship using the sensory drivers in digital fundraising. Participants will experience how simple actions can drive incremental income by increasing supporter satisfaction and trust.

Aimed at

  • Directors of fundraising, online and digital fundraisers, retention managers

Learning outcomes

  • How to recognise and use emotions in digital fundraising
  • Delivering memorable experiences for digital supporters
  • Using the feedback from supporters to improve your digital experience

Hacking your donor lifetime value with data science

REGISTER FOR #FRO2020

 

About this session

The majority of fundraiser aims to boost their donor lifetime and have the perception that Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Social Data Intelligence can be used to reach it.  

However, it’s common to hear that “my organisation is not ready to do it”, “have to sort out the basics first” or “we can not afford it. 

In this session, framed by Growth Hacking principles and supported by real life cases from UNICEF, Greenpeace or SOS Children Villages (and more), we will demonstrate that the right moment to change and innovate is right now; and share a couple of tools that will help you to include state of the art technology in your fundraising programme immediately.   

We will start with a dissection of the Lifetime value equation and understand the variables that should be manipulated in order to influence it. We will find both transactional and behaviour dimensions that demand different approaches and technologies.   

Afterwards, we will present a set of sophisticated – but affordable or free – tech tools that will allow you to hack your systems, manipulate data, get insights from your audiences and, consequently, make wisdom decisions, which will help you to improve both your income and retention rates.

About this session

As the philanthropic sector and the use of digital technologies have grown, so have opportunities for civil society organizations to adopt new fundraising practices.

The new technologies provide innovative, efficient and cost-effective means to raise funds for important social missions.

For example, artificial intelligence can also help fundraisers to capture and manage data about donors, craft personalized, donor-centric emails and launch global fundraising campaigns.

On the other hand, the digital revolution has also brought a range of new risks and challenges to fundamental rights.

How can fundraisers benefit from the new technologies? What are the risks they should be aware of? How does it affect the philanthropic environment?

The session will aim to address these questions. 

 

Aimed at

  • Fundraisers who are planning to or already using AI and other digital technologies to solicit donation 
  • Tech experts supporting nonprofits and fundraising practices

About The Session

In this session, we will look at Transparency International Brazil’s United Against Corruption Campaign – an excellent example of using both innovation and tradition for impact. The campaign also shows how online and offline strategies can perform together.

The United Against Corruption Campaign was built over a $150,000 USD budget raised from foundations and crowdfunding that reached an impressive result of 600,000 engaged leads and 2,000 regular donors (without even asking for donations) in the 2018 Brazil elections period. To support the campaign, we also used gamification, influencer mapping with social listening, WhatsApp groups and principles to reach micro targeted audiences.

You will learn how we used combined engagement scores, app use analysis, hot maps, social network analysis, web scraping and crawlers’ reports, and used data visualisation tools to get data insights. You will also learn the value of building an eclectic team made up of data engineers, data scientists, software developers, millennium fundraisers, community managers, campaigners and content producers to support your campaigns. This case study will also show how third sector can (and must!) learn from startups and how they use Growth Hacking’s 3 principles: Creative Marking, Solid Systems and Processes and Data Insights.

Aimed at:

  • Fundraisers
  • Engagement
  • Campaigner
  • Advocacy
  • Digital (Head, Manager and Directors).

Learning outcomes:

  • A different way to face fundraising: It’s more about generating interactions first and asking for money later
  • Understanding that the resources to innovate and be more cost effective are available
  • Understanding of the new range of skills and competencies needed to operate the re-evolution
  • Data science + Social Listening = Power team
  • How to integrate all of it and make use of different technologies

Live-stream fundraising: Disrupting the fundraising landscape

Watch the session on the Resource Alliance Facebook page

In this session, we will be lifting the lid on gaming for good and demystifying livestream fundraising. This is one of the hottest charity trends for 2019 and with the global games market growing at such an exponential rate, it’s no wonder why!  

 

As consumers we are changing the way we digest content.
