Examples: “Corporate Partnership” case studies
from 99 Best Ever Fundraising and Earned Income Projects Vol.1

Corporate adopts charity

  • The real estate franchise group L. J. Hooker adopted the charity Cystic Fibrosis two years ago as its corporate charity.
  • In the first year of the relationship, Hookers launched the Ultimate Garage Sale, and invited everyone in the community to drop off unused - but saleable - items at their 600 local offices.
  • This initiative raised $185,000, which was boosted with a corporate donation of $50,000.
  • This year they hope to at least surpass that success, particularly as the company has organised a charity house to be built in Brisbane with donated materials.
  • When auctioned, this charity house should generate a surplus of $50,000 which will also go to Cystic Fibrosis.

Companies use charities for publicity

  • There is a growing trend for companies to use charities to generate publicity - with or without the consent of the charity.
  • The franchise hairdressing chain Just Cuts took a more responsible attitude and earned enormous publicity throughout NSW with its promotion to donate $1 to charity for every haircut in its salons on a Saturday in February.
  • Their PR firm went to work and - by using photos from local salons - was able to get exposure for Just Cuts in various local newspapers.
  • 64 salons participated and $25,000 was raised for the Sydney Children’s Hospital at Randwick.

Examples: “Community Focus” case studies
from 99 Best Ever Fundraising and Earned Income Projects Vol.1

Celebrity chefs pool talents

  • The annual luncheon catered by the Great Chefs of Adelaide raises over $50,000 for the Archbishop’s Appeal, and its beneficiary Anglicare.
  • Most of the fine wine and food is donated, the chefs give their time for free, as do students from the Regency Hotel School - who do the support cooking and act as waiters for the 300+ guests.
  • The event is held on a Sunday at the Adelaide Town Hall and is marketed to those who like to have a long Sunday lunch with friends.

Opportunity in credit card over-ride

  • If you have a large number of affluent supporters on your database, credit card income could be of interest to you.
  • For example, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals offers Amex credit cards to its database of 70,000 names.
  • Amex will then pay a usage fee back to the animal welfare agency.
  • The numbers work like this – if 5% of names take up the offer, and if they each spend $10,000 a year on their card, and if Amex pays 0.25% on usage, then the RSPCA will earn $87,500 annually.
  • However the demographics of the RSPCA supporter base are unlikely to support these figures – firstly a typical supporter is unlikely to be in an age group that would be keen to accept another credit card, secondly they are unlikely to spend $10,000 annually on credit.
  • All marketing expenses are met by Amex, and there is no breaching of Privacy Code legislation because you are marketing to your own members.
  • Save the Children, AIDS Trust, and the Starlight Children’s Foundation are also part of a growing number of community business enterprises that offer a branded credit card issued by American Express.
