An advertising agency boss thinks that the RSPCA’s anti-hunt banner ad campaign is only “okay.”Lucian Camp, chairman of agency CCHM comments on four current online advertising campaigns in the Ad Watch section of New Media Age magazine. He likes the idea of a charity creating banner ads and encouraging supporters to copy them and paste them on their own sites.Yet he thinks that the campaign is not particularly impressive. “The banners are, well, okay, saying the sort of things you’d expect the RSPCA to say in the kind of typeface you’d expect it to use.” Advertisement RSPCA’s banner ads are “well, okay” Designed by Lateral, the ads have appeared extensively on sites such as Private Eye, The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph, the New Statesman and The Times. The campaign was planned by PHD IQ.Despite being underwhelmed by the RSPCA’s campaign, Camp still accorded it the accolade of Campaign of the Week. The message is of course that charities could do so much better with their online advertising.  21 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis read more

The plummeting stockmarket, the pensions crisis, and the cost of longterm care for older people are all contributory factors according to the research.Theresa Dauncey, LPC’s director, said: “The research demonstrates the timeliness of this campaign and underscores the importance of charities working together to increase legacy income for the entire sector.” LPC is launching a free will writing guide, produced the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners, to promote legacies. A survey for the Legacy Promotion Campaign (LPC) has found that more people than ever will not leave a charitable bequest in their will.NOP carried out the research for the LPC and found that 40% of 50-65 year olds were not likely to include a charity in their will. Fifty four per cent felt leaving charitable legacies were of “little importance”.The LPC reports a jump in the number of people who will not consider leaving a legacy at all from 39% to 48% since September 2002.

UK Fundraising donates monitor via donateapc.org.uk

first_imgUK Fundraising has found a home for its unwanted Dell 17″ monitor using the donateapc.org.uk Web site.The recent purchase of a new monitor at UK Fundraising means we had a spare Dell 17″ monitor which was still in good condition and needed to find a good home.We used the free services of donateapc.org.uk to announce its availability and this morning a local charity picked it up to take to their office.

Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. The donateapc.org.uk site worked very well. It was easy to post details of the monitor, and we received requests for it from three organisations, so the site clearly gets used well. After the charity picked up the monitor we were able to return to the Web site and delete the monitor from the listing, without any complicated user IDs or passwords to remember.There are a number of PC and hardware recycling sites online, but donateapc.org.uk was set up specifically to cater for the individuals and companies who only had one or two bits of kit to donate. Most of the other sites catered for larger companies who wanted to donate many items in one go.All in all it proved a very effective and easy-to-use service.
