There may be a new way to raise funds for your non-profit in the United Kingdom.
Curious Minds, a donor lead-engagement and acquisition platform, has set up a base and is ready to work within the UK. The Australian service provider describes its offering as a “turn-key digital solution” for non-profits to fundraise.
In a statement detailing the launch, Curious Minds pointed to its ability to retain monthly donors for charities that fall away when other methods are used. According to the service provider, Curious Mind has a 95 percent retention rate for the first year, compared to an industry average of close to 60 percent.
Founder and CEO Stephen Thirgood, discussed the wider demand for his company’s services throughout the world.
He said: “Our global clients have been asking us to establish a presence in the UK market and we already provide limited services to the market. Establishing a local team allows us to better service our clients and open our services to US-based non-profits and deliver something that doesn’t exist now but is very much needed.”
Its clients include the likes of Oxfam, Doctors without Borders, Bush Heritage and the Royal Flying Doctor Service. With a fully in-house service, non-profit organisations point to Curious Minds as a fully accountable solution that is easy to communicate with.
Mr Thirgood added: “Over the past decade, we’ve created a proprietary system that assists our not-for-profit clients attract long-term regular givers to their charities. In turn, this gives those organisations a stable platform to plan their future growth strategies, knowing Curious Minds will deliver the numbers they require to sustain their ambitions.”
Curious Minds will start working with select UK-based non-profits this year. The UK expansion is happening alongside similar moves into the US, New Zealand and Singapore.
