Anyone who names their newborn son ‘Lorenzo Bruno Nero’ is surely expecting nothing less than greatness. And luckily for Eileen Dallaglio, her little Lawrence did not disappoint.
Not content with achieving ‘rugby legend’ status during an illustrious sporting career, in 2009 Lawrence set up The Dallaglio Foundation, whose aim is to identify, support and raise funds for cancer and youth development causes that will change lives through teamwork.
And because Lawrence applies the same dedication to his charity work as he did to his sporting career, the organisation has gone from strength to strength, and last year began the search for a CRM and fundraising system to support its various programmes and operations and to ensure all their supporters had a positive experience with the charity.
Despite its high profile figurehead, The Dallaglio Foundation is run by a small, dedicated team with little network infrastructure. The priority for the team was to find a cost effective, hosted solution which had standard functionality that would suit their needs.
The modular nature of thankQ meant that The Dallaglio Foundation was able to buy the fundraising, CRM, finance and events modules to meet their immediate needs, adding on functionality as the organisation continues to flourish.
CEO, Rachel Roxburgh said of the decision, ‘The Dallaglio Foundation is all about achieving through teamwork. thankQ not only gave us the functionality we were looking for as standard, for the whole team, at an affordable price, but also worked with our IT supplier to agree a suitable hosted solution’.
