CUSTOMER SPOTLIGHT World Villages for Children World Villages for Children was founded over 50 years ago. The charity's mission is to provide funding to support the programmes of the Sisters of Mary. Helping children around the world break free from a life of poverty, by establishing schools for children of the poorest families, providing food, care, shelter and vocational training. More than 150,000 children have graduated from the programmes, and thousands more lives have been changed for the better. World Villages for Children generates the majority of its income through direct mail campaigns, but is expanding into other areas of fundraising, particularly digital fundraising. Why did you look for a new fundraising CRM solution? "We did have another fundraising solution in place, but after a while it became apparent that it wasn't a good fit for our organisation. It was cost-prohibitive, and we found that we weren't getting the insight into our donor data that we needed to support good quality donor engagement and fundraising." What made you choose Raiser's Edge NXT? "We spent three or four months researching options. We met with several providers and undertook a very close analysis of both the software on offer and the associated costs. "The biggest result for us is the cost savings we will achieve by implementing NXT. We will save in the region of £150,000 each year!" —Nicola Lawson, UK Manager and Trustee World Villages for Children is powered by: Raiser's Edge NXT ™ Blackbaud Online Express ™ Blackbaud Merchant Services ™ Learn more +44 (0) 207 601 7100
