- Needed to extend the overall effectiveness of the organization via the Internet, but the organization's efforts were falling short
- Required a strategy behind their online tools to extend our overall reach and use the data collected as a means to provide better visibility into campaign and organizational performance
- Identified a need to provide the organization’s annual event participants with tools that would enable them to fundraise online
- Engaged the help of the Convio Strategic Services (CSS) team to help with a redesign of the organization’s website
- With Convio Strategic Services, the organization developed a sophisticated online strategy that utilized the breadth of capabilities offered by the Convio solution
- The organization also added Convio TeamRaiser™ to support their event-based fundraising efforts
- Over a four year period, MHS has grown its useable email list from 6,900 to 63,000, and increased annual online donations from $216,000 to more than $583,000
- The lifetime ROI for Convio is nearly 800 percent
- MHS utilizes TeamRaiser in multiple ways including support for two of its annual events and has raised more than $752,000 in five years.
- With seamless integration between TeamRaiser and the other Convio Online Marketing modules, MHS can quickly cross-reference new donor information with other key data, and can track real-time metrics, measuring online performance against goals.
