Long history equals much experience together. Therefore, we’ve been honored to use a good majority of our team’s skillset when it comes to serving Evangel Home. Here’s the main skills we’ve used to this present date:
After maintaining their online presence and marketing for 2 years, the Executive Director of Evangel Home said to us, “Bringing in $60,000 at an annual fundraising event hardly happens without an online community that cares,” making a point to let us know that we helped make that happen.
How does a women’s crisis shelter sustain itself, requiring tens of thousands of dollars annually? Our answer, a consistent digital strategy that builds a sense of community. To do this we created community-oriented website with an easy-access donation platform, managed daily their social media to foster a sense of community with supporters, produced monthly newsletters for donors, and assisted in acquiring grants.
As a result of our efforts, Evangel Home has secured a $120,000 per year advertising grant from Google, increased 115% in Facebook participation with no advertising, as well as the aforementioned raising of $60,000 at a 2015 event and every year now after that. Their following on Twitter went organically from 33 to 1200+ and their newsletter has 500+ subscribers. Their website has grown from 300 to 1000+ views per week. Evangel Home’s Director declares such wouldn’t have been possible without the consistent digital strategy led by the Helps2 team.
