New Feature: Regular Giving on Chuffed.org

This month, we’re launching Regular Giving on Chuffed.org. It’s been one of the most requested features we’ve ever had, so we’re incredibly excited to be making it available for all our campaigners.

Regular giving is perfect for:

  • organisations that have regular expenses like staff, rent and programs to pay for;
  • political and advocacy organisations that collect ongoing dues or membership fees; or
  • campaigners who just want to convert some of their crowdfunding donors into longer term relationships

Here’s how it works

1. Switch on Regular Giving in the Customize section of the editor

For all our campaigners, they can just login in, edit their campaign and go to the Customize section of the editor. Down the bottom, you’ll see this toggle. Just switch it on to activate Regular Giving.

Currently, Regular Giving is connected to our debit/credit card system, so if you haven’t set up a Stripe.com account, you’ll be prompted to do so. Don’t worry, this takes less than 5 minutes.

2. Donors can choose one-off or monthly

Now that Regular Giving has been enabled on your account, donors will see the Regular Giving toggle on the donation page:

If they choose the “Monthly” option, they’ll get a clear explanation of exactly how the charging will work so there are no surprises.

They’ll make a donation straight away, and then another one on the 15th of every month, starting from the following month. That means if they donate on the 10th August, their next donation will be on the 15th September, then on the 15th October and so on.

3. Each month, their donation will get automatically transferred to you

You won’t need to do anything. On the 15th of the following month, the donor’s card will be charged, and you’ll receive your funds. Note that your campaign does not need to be “live” or in “Infinity Mode” for this to happen. Each new monthly donation will be treated like a new donation to your campaign: your total will increment, and your supporters tab will be updated. This will continue until the donor asks us to switch off the Regular Monthly donation.

Frequently asked questions

1. Does my campaign need to be live for the regular donation to process?

No. Regular Giving will process even if your campaign is completed. For example, let’s say someone decides to donate $15/month to your campaign on the 20th August. On that day, you’ll get a $15 donation to your campaign. Then, let’s say, your campaign ends on the 30th August. Although no new donors will be able to donate after the 30th August, you’ll still continue to get your Regular Giving donations. So on 15th September, you’ll get another $15 donation to your campaign and so on.

2. What happens if someone’s card expires or if someone doesn’t have enough money in their bank account for the Regular Giving donation? 

We attempt to charge Regular Giving donations on the 15th of every month. If the card charge attempt fails for whatever reason, we’ll attempt to charge it up to 3 additional times in the week following the 15th. Obviously if one of these attempts succeeds, we’ll stop any further attempts. After these 3 additional attempts, if we are unable to charge the card, we will notify you and stop charging the card. We will also notify the donor and they can update their card details with us.

3. How to donors cancel or amend their regular donation?

Donors can contact Chuffed.org Support at [email protected] to amend their Regular Giving donation at any time.

Welcome to Apple Pay, Higher Conversions and More Transparency

Today we’re releasing our brand new payment experience on Chuffed.org, which we’ve been working on over the last month. It’s our biggest payment system upgrade to date – here are the three major changes:

1. Introducing Apple Pay for Crowdfunding (and Android, Google, Chrome & Microsoft Pay)

We’re now at 60% mobile and tablet traffic and so we built this upgrade from a mobile-first perspective. That means all campaigns that use our credit/debit card system, will now automatically be upgraded to allow Apple Pay payments on iOS devices which support it. Android & Microsoft fans, fear not. We’ve also included Android, Chrome and Microsoft Pay in the upgrade so all major in-built device payment methods are now supported on Chuffed.org – making us one of the few platforms in the world to provide this level of support for non-profits, charities, and social enterprises around the world.

Here’s what it looks like when you donate on an iPhone 8:

 

2. Higher Donor Conversion +16%

A few months back we ran a set of user experience tests with new donors to Chuffed.org to see how they experienced the payment page. It was good, but there were a number of things that we picked up that could be improved – mostly around the emotional stages of a donation process, the mobile donation experience and how the choice structure worked. From there, we designed a new experience with all that research built in and have been A/B testing it for a few weeks. Now, most A/B tests are successful if they get 1-2% increases in conversion rates.

Our results: the new structure and user experience got a 16% higher conversion rate. That means 16% more donors for you. We’re not resting on our laurels though – we’ve got a few more things we’re looking at building in to push this even higher for you.

3. More Transparency

One of the main parts of our social mission is to increase the level of transparency in giving. That’s why we pioneered the optional donation model – so that donors can choose exactly what they give to us, instead of being slugged with a hidden 5% fee. We want to make the way we present the optional donation model as clear as possible, so we’ve now included in the flow of the donation process, rather than behind an edit button, and we’ve dramatically simplified the explanation of what it is. We know that optional donations is still a new’ish model, but we’re seeing more and more platforms adopt it and we think the days of taking a hidden cut are numbered.

4. GDPR compliance

For our EU & UK campaigners, we’re making your GDPR compliance even easier by using default opt-outs for all extra marketing and separating out different communication channels. That means that you’ll be able to correctly import any donors’ personal information by their communication preferences – and only communicate with the people that have given the right permissions. Any campaign that’s run this year will have valid donor permission information.

What’s next?

We’ve got a few more upgrades to the payment process coming up, including improving our PayPal experience, extra GDPR support, and a few more things to make your donors’ experience the best we can make it.

The Top 10 Animal Welfare Crowdfunding Campaigns

At Chuffed.org, we are privileged to see amazing campaigns launch every day. Our favourite thing is when campaigns take off to raise bucket loads for their cause or blitz through their fundraising targets.

Here are the Top 10 Animal Welfare Crowdfunding Campaigns – the ones that have raised the most money for their awesome projects and initiatives. 

 

1. Help Us to Help Them: Bring White Rhino to Altina – $197,503

In 2016, the staff at Altina Wildlife Park in the New South Wales Riverina (in Australia) took their passion for animal conservation one step further, deciding to import three Southern White Rhinos – Mtoto, Mango and Tatu – as part of a global breeding initiative.

They raised a substantial amount of cash – $197,503 – to move, feed and house the animals in the biggest animal campaign yet on Chuffed.org. 

Check out the campaign page here.

 

2. Duke’s Place Called Home – £90,360

Duke the Bullock, who was born a dwarf and sustained debilitating pelvic injuries while young, was rescued by a UK family and taken into their North Yorkshire home, along with countless other farm animals that were no longer seen as valuable by their former owners. Soon their kind-hearted endeavours became CALF Sanctuary and the family and animals all required a new home – one more suitable for Duke and his friends. 

When they asked, the community rallied and contributed a huge £90,360 for the purchase of a suitable property and the relocation of all the animals to their new home. 

Check out the campaign here

 

3. Raising the Roof – $162,458

Edgar’s Mission Farm Sanctuary houses rescued farm animals on 153 peaceful acres in Victoria, in southeastern Australia.

Named after founder Pam Ahern’s first rescued pig – Edgar Alan Pig – the sanctuary’s first Chuffed.org campaign went bananas, raising $162,458 to build bigger and better lodgings for all its animals. This included goat mountains and jungle gyms, a purpose built duck pond complete with waterfall and a chicken barn called the ‘Barn Mahal’.    

Check out the campaign here

 

4. Create a Vegan – £82,096

What is Veganuary? The UK-based charity encourages people to try out a vegan diet in January (and at other times of the year too!) to reduce the number of animals in the farming system, our impact on the planet and improve our health all at the same time. They find a huge 67% of people who participate in January, stay vegan throughout the year.   

Their #CreateAVegan campaign raised £82,096 to spread the word about Veganuary via advertisements on public transport in four cities across three countries: London, Manchester, Boston and Sydney. 

Check out the campaign here

 

5. Project Piggy Paradise – $132,031

Another awesome campaign from our friends at Edgar’s Mission Farm Sanctuary – this time to build a swanky new home for the sanctuary’s rescued pigs. One that not only provided shelter, shade, warmth, showers, veterinary treatment areas and the like, but could also inspire change in the way pigs are viewed in our wider society. 

Edgar’s raised $132,031 for the new facility which will allow the public – who can book in to visit – to see the unique and endearing personalities of pigs shine through, and come to a better understanding of these quirky creatures as much more than the before of a ham sandwich. 

Check out the campaign here

 

6.  $120,000 Kindness Challenge! – $128,172

Edgar’s Mission Farm Sanctuary were at it again! They asked supporters to help them raise $120,000 – which they outdid in a $128,172 raise. 

The appeal saw them able to buy essential to get through the winter including over 1 tonne of fruit and veg, 100 new tools, 50 fruit trees, over 500 bales of hay, 5 new shelters, solar panels and a 4WD Utility Vehicle.

Check out the campaign here

 

7. You Can Save The Lives Of Homeless Dogs! – $83,495

Stray and mistreated dogs are a sad reality on the streets of Thailand’s cities and in other parts of Southeast Asia and the US-based charity Soi Dog Foundation has been doing something about it since 2003.

In 2015, the Foundation raised $82,495 towards the cost of building an animal hospital at their shelter in Phuket.   

Check out the campaign here

 

8. Raise the Roof – £40,395

After the move to a property suitable to housing Duke the Bullock and his mates, Sharon and her family at CALF Sanctuary returned to Chuffed.org in 2016. They raised £40,395 to build a new barn to house the (increasingly social) Duke and: 5 cows, 5 pigs, 4 goats, 30+ sheep and lambs and a smattering of turkeys and chickens.   

Check out the campaign here

9. Build a New Home for Mountain Lions – $53,655

The Center for Animal Research and Education (CARE) in Texas provides a safe forever home to big cats and other exotic animals no matter what their history or needs. The CARE property is currently home to 50 animals including mountain lions, African lions, tigers, black and spotted leopards, bobcats, ring-tail lemurs, llamas, and a coati. 

When asked by the Dallas Zoo to take in two new mountain lions they stepped up and raised $53,655 to build them a proper home. 

Check out the campaign here

 

10. Help PetRescue Fix the Pound – $63,347

PetRescue partner with over 750 animal rescue groups and shelters all over Australia – helping them to re-home hundreds of thousands of unwanted, lost or abandoned pets each year. This campaign – which raised $63,347 – helped them to reach out and partner with more Council-run pounds, only 1% of whom were using PetRescue’s free rehoming services at the time, and where, sadly, the majority of unwanted animals are still put down.

The Top 5 Environment Crowdfunding Campaigns

At Chuffed.org, we are privileged to see amazing campaigns launch every day. Our favourite thing is when campaigns take off to raise bucket loads for their cause or blitz through their fundraising targets.

Here are the Top 5 Environment Crowdfunding Campaigns – the ones that have raised the most money for their awesome projects and initiatives. 

 

1. Save Australia’s Heritage from Industrial Pollution – $86,300

In late 2017, the Conservation Council of Western Australia (CCWA) raised a massive $86,300 to protect the world’s largest collection of rock art on the Burrup Peninsula in the Murujuja National Park.

The money raised will be used to independently monitor the effects of  nearby natural gas, iron ore and ammonium fertiliser and explosives industries on the ancient art and put hard evidence behind protection lobbying efforts.

Check out the campaign page here.

 

2. Help EDO Qld fight for a safer climate – $74,489

The Environmental Defenders Office (EDO) in the northeastern Australian state of Queensland has run almost a dozen giving campaigns on Chuffed.org and has achieved some amazing wins with 5 of them reaching our list of top grossing environmental campaigns! The second highest grossing of them, this appeal raised $74,489

The EDO’s campaigns help them continue their important work helping ordinary folk stand up for the natural environment, advocating for stronger laws to protect nature and running legal challenges in Australia’s court system to hold industry and government to account.

Thanks to their work, the 65 hectare Mapleton Acadian Forest Trail Nature Preserve is now protected in perpetuity in partnership with the Nature Trust of New Brunswick and contains a 3 km nature trail with interpretive signs, footbridges, an observation platform, and a traditional sugar shack for nature lovers to enjoy.

We Just Raised $20 Million

I remember when #GivingTuesday first launched in Australia. It was 2013, I had just hired our first employee, and together, we had just launched the new rebranded “Chuffed.org”.

This is what it looked like (the internet ages quick!):

Old Chuffed.org

About as many people knew what #GivingTuesday was as knew what crowdfunding was – and even fewer knew about us. As a concept, crowdfunding was so foreign that we had to slip it into presentations about “online fundraising” so that people knew what we were talking about.

It wouldn’t be until the next #GivingTuesday in 2014 that we’d announce hitting our first $1 Million milestone through Chuffed.org.

Now, three years later, we have an incredibly special announcement. You, our amazing community, have now donated $20 Million to campaigns on Chuffed.org.

We can’t thank you enough for believing in us, and more importantly believing in our campaigners. Everyday, they put up their hand to make our community and the world at large better for everyone.

When we hit $10 Million in donations, we celebrated by letting you in on some of our more interesting data in this post.

Today, we’re reflecting on the big trends in 2017 and what that means for the future.

Trend 1: Seniors are getting online – fast

The growth of 65+ year old donors outstripped the growth rate of any other demographic bucket. Their share of donations grew at 20%, mostly taking market share from 18-24 year olds. To put that in perspective, 65 year olds now account for nearly twice as many donations on Chuffed.org as 18-24 year olds.

Trend 2: Mobile donating is taking over desktop

It’s been coming for a long time, but now it’s official. We’re at 50/50 for mobile -tablet donating vs desktop donations. Despite those tiny keys, punching in your card details on your phone or tablet is now just as popular as doing it on a computer. Looking at the trend, mobile donating is set to become the norm very soon.

Trend 3: Campaigns are getting bigger

This year we focused a lot of effort on bringing more education to our campaigners: we built the Chuffed.org Academy, we trained 100s of campaigners through our in-person workshops, and we focused on building tools in Chuffed.org that we know make people more successful – like our new Chuffed Team Tools.

The result: campaigns now raise 28% more on average.

Oh, and not only are they raising more, their doing it even quicker – 15% quicker to be exact.

Stayed tuned in 2018 for some great tools we’ll be adding that are going to help you raise even more.

Trend 4: People aren’t stopping for dinner

Last year, people used to take the 7pm hour off from donating to – we assume – stop and have dinner. In 2017, it looks like we’re now on our phones, donating straight through dinner – the dip has disappeared. I’m not really sure how I feel about this one!

Want to know what didn’t change?

Trend 5: Women are still much more likely than men to donate

Women continue to lead the revolution. Donors are still twice as likely to be women than men and women outshine men in every single age demographic.

To celebrate #GivingTuesday2017, we’re giving you a sneak peak into Movements – a brand new way of finding campaigns you care about on Chuffed.org. Just click through here, find something that you’re passionate about and I’m sure you’ll find a campaign that’ll inspire you.

Welcome to Chuffed.org Teams

Teams

Teams

What do you think makes the most difference to your chances of success on a crowdfunding campaign? The Video? The Perks? The Target?

Turns out it’s none of those.

We analysed over 5,000 campaigns on Chuffed.org and found that the standout factor that determined whether you were likely to be successful or not was whether you had a team member.

So, we decided to make working with teams much simpler.

Here are the three ways you can now do it on Chuffed.org:

1. The Advocate Team

In lots of situations, one person gets the responsibility to make sure their crowdfunding page looks perfect and their main job is to put all the content up and then give the rest of the team a link to the campaign page. Everyone else needs to be acknowledged on the page, but they don’t need to edit it.

We’ve made it super simple to add team members names and profile photos directly in the campaign editor and then like magic, they’ll appear on your page.

2. The Collaborative Team

What about if more than one person needs to edit the campaign? Then it becomes a collaborative effort.

All you need to do in this case, is to add the person’s name and email and invite them to become an Editor. They’ll then get sent an email invitation with login details to edit the campaign.

This is great for the situation when you’re co-founders or a campaign team or someone has the bank account details and you need to share the campaign with them.

3. The Fundraiser Team

The deepest level of team is when people agree to fundraise for you. They need their own Individual page that’s connected to the main campaign.

All you need to do is to add in the person’s name and then switch on their individual fundraiser page. If they need to edit the page too, just invite them to edit it. Note that they’ll only be able to edit their individual fundraiser page unless you give them “Editor” access to the main page.

This is great for: when you’ve got team members with their own networks; or if you’re running a fundraising challenge event; or if you want to create a bit of competition amongst the team.

Where to from here?
Whether you’re an Individual, or representing an organisation, it’s easy to build a team!

Here are the first steps:

  1. Head to chuffed.org/start and begin your campaigning (for free!)
  2. Navigate to the Team section
  3. Create Team Members (all you need is their name)
  4. Choose their Role in the Campaign!
  5. Optimize Editors & Fundraisers

 

Quick tip: The most popular perks in the history of Chuffed.org

Australian Vegan Journal

What makes for a great donor reward?

In our previous research on the best crowdfunding perks, we’ve found three categories that work well. Today, we’re going to look at some of the most popular perks of all time to get your creative juices flowing.

Pre-release products or services

  • Care packages – 304 sold. For $64, supports got two care packages—one for themselves, and one donated to a domestic violence shelter on Mother’s Day.
  • Get Pointy – 280 sold. For $25, supporters received an early release of a the children’s book Pointy Pembleton, with proceeds going to support greyhound rescue.
  • Early edition of Australian Vegans – 226 sold. Supporters got an early print edition of the magazine for $15, which told the story of veganism and ethical leadership in Australia.

Unique experiences

  • Swimming with the whales – 429 sold. For $50, donors could be entered into the running to join a documentary team swimming with minke whales with the Great Barrier Reef Legacy campaign. The concept was so successful, the campaign raised over $20,000 with this perk alone! (If you choose to run a raffle, be sure to get a license from your locality.)
  • Special screening of Oddball– sold out at 200! For $30, supporters got to attend a private screening of the movie and guest speaker presentation, along with popcorn and a drink. The funds went toward Vets for Change. Seats were limited to 200, and sold out!

Special recognition

    • The $10 Challenge – 438 sold. For $10, individuals purchased the rights to get their name placed on a plaque at the Edgar’s Mission Farm Sanctuary. Edgar’s Mission Farm Sanctuary also had two other high-performing perks—a  $25 and $50 perk with “digital kisses” from the animals, plus the name of the supporter on the recognition wall.
    • No Place Like Home – 409 sold. For just £5, supporters could get their name on a plaque at the new shelter for disabled bullock Duke. Campaigner Sharon Lawlor raised over £90,000 for the shelter!

  • Get your location on the map – 248 sold. Supporters could be placed on a map of supporters for the African Data Initiative for just £1, helping to produce and teach statistics software to native Kenyans.

No matter what your cause, you can create a perk that pulls at the heartstrings of your biggest supporters.

Show your donors they’re part of something bigger, and provide them with rewards they can’t find anywhere else.

By creating unique perks specific to your campaign, you can grow a cause like never before.

What will you try?

5 Team Crowdfunding Campaigns That Blasted Through Their Targets

Crowdfunding is a team sport. Our new Team Crowdfunding feature takes it that extra step further.

A whole new way to crowdfund!

Each of your champions (the core bunch of people most passionate about your project) can take their passion for your cause that extra mile by creating their own crowdfunding page that’s connected with your main campaign page. The team pages inherit any perks from the main campaign and can be customised by each champion.

Check out some of our top picks for campaigns that have taken their crowdfunding to the next level by joining forces with their champions and setting individual targets.

1. Great Ocean Walk with PROJECT FUTURES



2. Small Change Big Impact



3. Climate for Change



4. Toss the Boss 2.0



5. Macquarie Mad Dash



We’re always on the lookout for new ways we can support campaigns in raising more funds, and this feature will do just this.

This is how: Team Crowdfunding lets you set up a normal crowdfunding campaign with several sub-campaigns for each of your team members below it. Everyone on the team gets their own page, which all sum up to the total on the main page.

We think Team Crowdfunding’s perfect for not-for-profits and social enterprises who:

  • Are worried that they don’t have a big enough audience to launch a crowdfunding campaign
  • Want to leverage their supporters’ audiences to get noticed
  • Are keen to be innovative with their fundraising
