Hospice uses Progress CRM module for ‘Light Up a Life’ campaign

first_imgHospice uses Progress CRM module for ‘Light Up a Life’ campaign Chelmsford-based Farleigh Hospice has worked with Fisk Brett, developers of Progress CRM fundraising database, to develop a module to help it run its Christmas Light Up A Life campaign, one of its major fundraising events of the year.Light Up a Life is the Hospice movement’s way of remembering loved ones at Christmas by asking supporters to dedicate a Christmas tree light to them.Gary Hawkes, Head of Fundraising at Farleigh Hospice, worked with Fisk Brett to ensure that the ProgressCRM database could help maximise the potential of this event.“As one of the major campaigns bringing in funds,” he said, “we realised that we needed a ‘supporter-centric’ database that would enable us to build relationships with our supporters, and to manage their pledges in a sympathetic and appropriate way. We had already upgraded our contacts database to ProgressCRM, but wanted to have even smarter functionality to do Light up a Life justice.”Hawkes and Fisk Brett configured a special module for the Light up a Life campaign, which is now in action. The campaign began in early October with a mailing to warm selection list from both the main contact and supporter database, supplemented by a cold list from a mailing house. Campaign leaflets, printed with their own source codes for tracking by the module, have also been distributed around churches and other local outlets.Donations are received in a variety of forms, and each one includes the request to hold one or more names for a ‘light’ on a Christmas tree and an entry into a book of remembrance. Sometimes, requests are received to put particular names on specific trees or for certain services, and these are recorded in ProgressCRM. Donors receive an acknowledgment letter with the memoriam names confirmed within a special card.Now, in late November and through to December, ‘lighting up’ services are being held throughout the hospice’s area.Hawkes explained how the module has made managing the campaign much simpler. He said: “The database’s ‘Light up a Life’ batch entry module developed for us captures all the necessary information including details of the donors, checking against our existing contact list, and with the ability to quickly create new contacts and Gift Aid declarations.“It also allocates a ‘batch number’ date, source code such as existing supporter, or which new list or which leaflet used. We enter amount, transaction type (in-memoriam being default), and payment method with the ability to create a payment plan if we get a standing order.“The module also records the charity type, and the details required for the services’ cards and their in-memoriam names. These can be multiple names per donation which will be assigned to a card which can include up to five names chosen from a picklist of previous names used by the donor.“The batch processing and printing of the letters and cards is very simple, as is the management of standing orders, Gift Aid declarations and other financial transactions.”The Light Up a Life module is available to other hospices using ProgressCRM.

Stage was set for Ki to strike

first_img Press Association Swansea’s Ki Sung-yueng revealed his first Liberty Stadium goal against QPR was even more special as his actress wife was in the crowd. “It happens sometimes in games that you can’t, but I’ve tried to improve myself and I wanted to score more. “Normally I stay at the back but I got the chance to push on and my first goal in front of the home fans was very meaningful.” Swansea travel to West Ham next on Sunday with Sam Allardyce’s side two points better off than the Welsh club a fter their 2-1 win at West Brom, and Ki said he is expecting a tough physical examination in east London. “It’s not always easy away from home, especially at West Ham,” Ki said. “We have to be physically ready. “I’m sure we will have chances so we know we have to concentrate on our defensive work and give us possibility to win. “I am not sure if we are better than when I first came here but we are getting better results. “We are sixth after this amount of games for the first time and all the boys are mentally prepared to achieve. It is different.” The 25-year-old scored his first Swansea goal in a 2-1 win at Manchester United on the opening day of the season but he had to wait until Tuesday’s 2-0 victory over QPR to register in front of Liberty Stadium fans who included his wife Han Hye-jin. Ki celebrated his goal by making a heart sign with his hands, and said: “It was for my wife who was in the crowd. “She comes to every game so she’s been waiting a while. “Normally I’m not a player who scores – it happens once every three months – but it was nice to score in front of her.” Monk said after Swansea’s victory that he had told Ki “it was about time he scored” – and his late effort was perfectly timed as it finally broke QPR’s resistance before Wayne Routledge added gloss with a second against his former club. But Ki said there was no extra pressure on him to score, even if the return of midfield anchorman Leon Britton a fter long-term injury allowed him to play in a more advanced role. “He (Monk) doesn’t want to put us under pressure to score, he just gives us more encouragement and is patient with us,” Ki said. “We have great attacking players in front of me who are always making great chances, so we are not worried about scoring. The South Korean midfielder joined Swansea for a then club record £5.5million fee in August 2012 but was sent out on loan to Sunderland last season where he was influential in helping the Black Cats win their battle for top-flight survival. Ki returned to south Wales last summer and the former Celtic playmaker has repaid manager Garry Monk’s faith in him by playing in every Barclays Premier League game as Swansea have climbed into the top six. last_img read more

Shankar was hit on the forearm but medical tests cleared him of injury while Dhawan and Kohli got hit on the hand during practice.
