Where Appco UK comes in
Charities rely on fundraising to secure donations to deliver their programmes. The more regular these donations are, the more effectively charities can plan and budget in advance. To do this, they must engage committed, long-term donors and generate regular funds in the most effective and interactive way possible. Monthly giving programmes achieve that objective while raising brand awareness on a national level. That’s where Appco UK comes in.
Face-to-Face Donor Acquisition
We provide a range of face-to-face donor acquisition programmes residentially and at private sites and manage telephone donor engagement programmes, focused on signing regular-giving donors, charity lottery players and raising brand awareness. Regular, ongoing support is vital to charities, helping them plan their programmes in advance and fund them over the long term.
Why professional face-to-face fundraising works:
We are dedicated to securing reliable on-going funds for our charity partners so they can focus on planning and delivering their vital services.
Charities continue to choose Appco UK to conduct their face-to-face campaigns because we deliver results, we believe what we do makes a difference and we believe in doing it well.
Making change possible
Long-term donors, maximum value for charities
The fundraising campaigns we deliver are focused on signing up long-term, regular-giving donors.
The longer a donor gives, the more cost effective the campaign becomes for the charity. The donors we sign up generously give on a monthly basis for an average of 3 to 5 years, which means our fundraising campaigns generate incredibly high returns on investment over the life of each donor.
Highest quality, lowest attrition
We believe that professional, respectful conversations are a powerful way to connect
people to a cause. It’s also the best way to ensure we acquire committed, informed
donors who, on average, continue to donate to the charity longer than those acquired
by any other provider in the sector.
Lottery fundraising campaigns
Our lotteries service allows charities to promote their causes, raise awareness of their
work and generate funds via subscription lotteries with weekly or monthly prize draws.
We have run successful lottery campaigns for a number of charities, since
2011, raising much needed funds for a range of great causes.
Appco UK believes that positive face-to-face fundraising benefits charities and the people
who donate to them, and we want to help improve and protect this method for all. That’s why we support a
variety of actions designed to improve fundraising standards and that ensure donors stay
happy and fundraising continues to provide for those in need.
We're proud of the positive impact we create for our clients.
