Key Takeaways
New donor base and new website

We are more than just a thrift store

The Society of Saint Vincent de Paul has been operating in Canada for over 175 years and is composed of 800 conferences (chapters) across Canada. They help more than 350,000 people each year providing home visits to the isolated and material support in the form of non-perishable food, clothes, household items and furniture to individuals and families. The Society also provides assistance to refugees, immigrants, and northern communities. That’s what I am talking about. We love what they do and could not wait to get started. 

The Need

The Society was looking to broaden the awareness of the work they do, and their donor base beyond their aging membership in order to continue their much needed work for the next 175 years.

The Solution

Website

We created a new, modernized, donor friendly website that tells the story of the Society in a more compelling way integrating key points from their Case for Support.

Digital

We then deployed a series of digital campaigns and creative for various events (World Day of the Poor, Giving Tuesday, Christmas, etc.) throughout the year that ran on Facebook targeting Catholics across Canada to increase their donor base and website donations.

Print

We created a series of print assets to support the Society including an ad for the 2021 Ottawa Business Journal Giving Guide, New Donor Welcome Package and Monthly Donor Program.

Impact

A modernized digital footprint of the Society has helped them grow their donor base and online donations as well. 

Their online donations have increased by 200%.

The traffic on their organic social posts increased by 80%.

Following a change in relationship with the United Counties of Prescott & Russell, Prescott-Russell Tourism found themselves facing a tremendous opportunity: the chance to redefine who they were and how they would serve Canadians. They decided to move away from simply promoting Prescott-Russell to helping small towns across Canada leverage tourism as a source of economic development and prosperity.
