Supporting Fundraising Efforts

Climate Reality approached Beaconfire RED in the fall of 2016 to support their efforts to improve fundraising performance, with a focus on cultivating new donors from their existing email list. Climate Reality’s mission is to catalyze a global solution to the climate crisis by making urgent action a necessity across every level of society by turning awareness into action. Focusing on the increased risk to the environment and climate movement since the presidential election, Beaconfire RED developed a digital fundraising strategy that included email, search, paid social media campaigns, retargeting, and website optimization.

 

End of Year Strategies

Beaconfire RED helped Climate Reality increase overall year-over-year revenue by 293% and gifts by 303%. First time donors accounted for 59% of total year-end revenue and the multichannel approach helped engage prospects and keep Climate Reality top of mind. Additionally, including campaign donors in the end-of-year messaging stream resulted in repeat gifts that accounted for 20% of overall gifts and 18% of total revenue.
