Looking to reach national scale while making local impact?
Our site was significantly enhanced this year due to the team’s insights into donor behaviour. With our re-vamped online experience and the new innovative e-gift card model, our online donations grew by 140%.
Every year, Indigo, Chapter, Coles stores raise money to buy books for their local school libraries. 2011 was the second year Better The World created an online fundraising community for Adopt a School, and it proved to be the most successful year in the program’s history. Through the new e-gift card program, Indigo donated a book for every Indigo e-gift card the school community sold online. 2011 Adopt a School not only raised $392,000 for schools in need of new books, but it also generated $93,000 in incremental revenue for Indigo.
