Position your cause
It starts here, with your cause and what you exist for. Can your audience relate to your messaging? Is it easy for them to understand? Does it compel them to get behind you?
Position your cause in a meaningful way with a standout design – attractive, modern and professional. People form connections with causes that clearly explain the difference they make. Ensure your cause stands out.
Tell your story
Your positioning speaks to the mind (what you do), while sharing personal stories speaks to the heart (the difference you make). By bringing hearts and minds together, charities can deliver a powerful message to grow supporters and extend their reach.
Variety the Children’s Charity provides first-hand accounts of children who have been supported through donations. Each story is personal and deeply moving.
Share facts and urgency
If your needs are urgent, make this clear. Facts are confronting and much harder to ignore than generic messages, no matter how inspiring those messages are.
National Wetlands Trust provides another example of sharing facts and urgency. Did you know that 90% of New Zealand’s wetlands have been lost? Wetlands improve water quality, reduce flood risks, provide biodiversity and play a vital role in managing climate change. Their goals are urgent… will you help them?
Explain what donations will be used for
You need your audience’s support to further your cause, so it’s vital they understand how making a one-off-donation or becoming a regular giver can help.
Show them the difference they can make with clear examples of what their donation will be used for.
Provide many avenues for support
Reach and engage supporters in your cause from discovery through to donation and membership.
Offer many avenues for them to support you, with clear pathways for both. Consider businesses, community groups, families and individuals – what are the various ways they can contribute to your cause?
We make it easy, secure and robust

All our developers are highly experienced, and apply best practice coding to ensure your site is fast to load, secure and robust.
We never outsource any aspect of our projects, because we like to stay in complete control of quality and delivery. Sending work offshore often results in poor outcomes for the client as we have seen time and again when companies ask us to step in and pick up the pieces.
