It's time to love your fundraisers

going up

Life is busy; ads and pitches are constantly bombarding people. As a charity you aren’t just competing with other charities for donor dollars - you are competing with products and services for their attention. Donors want something real, they want to be inspired, they want to connect and be a part of the cause. We make the difference in donors staying long-term. If a donor experiences first-hand what your cause is about, they will be inspired to give and make a lasting connection.

strategize with us

UP creates campaigns that allow donors to experience your cause. We go beyond traditional face-to-face acquisition.

Research has shown us that if you can engage a donor with your cause, you will make a deeper connection with a donor at the point of acquisition. The donor is then more likely to give longer and give more. The key is then getting them to identify themselves with your cause, in turn they are not only inspired to give but to become an advocate and urge others to give as well.
