Bmycharity services slash cost of fundraiser recruitment for Events Fundraising Departments

Howard Lake | 8 October 2008 | News

In a radical new take on online sponsorship, Bmycharity has reinvented the art of fundraiser recruitment, helping Events Fundraisers slash the cost of recruiting new participants for their fundraising events in the UK and overseas.
The Bmycharity team are familiar with the issues facing the sector in fundraiser recruitment and have developed an innovative and proven solution, reducing costs, time and energy required by a charity to organise events. Bmycharity has created a unique process for charities to communicate with new fundraisers through the personal networks of every person fundraising on the site.
Their statistics show that each fundraiser communicates with at least 45 people – all of whom are warm prospects for potential recruitment as well as donating. Combined with a further 250,000 individuals reached through their affiliate networks and a subscriber base of over 40,000, Bmycharity is offering a compelling alternative to conventional fundraiser recruitment.
“Our unique web-based service offers charities the facility to recruit fundraisers unlike any other,” said Ben Brabyn, managing director of Bmycharity. “Every page created on Bmycharity is customised for each charity, talking directly to the high response and lucrative audience that are keen to be inspired by events and experiences. Inspirational charities are finding that each page on our site can save at least £500* in recruitment costs. Bmycharity is the obvious choice for any motivated charity looking to expand its fundraising horizons, reach new audiences and keep costs down.”
Results from Google Analytics show that since January 2008 Bmycharity has received over 90,000 visitors per month to their site.
