Here are just a few of the successful projects created by some of the Raise partners over time.

Branding and Identity Development

The Start Network

The original name of the organization: The Consortium of British Humanitarian Agencies didn’t communicate the specific essence of this fast-acting network poised to release emergency funding in case of natural or man-made disasters. The British association of the name was also restricting potential involvement from global participants. The charity was successfully renamed and rebranded Start Network to express the nature and urgency of the interventions. A series of powerful images and motivating headlines were created to convey its unique identity.

Capital campaign

Build The Love

The UK’s oldest children’s charity Coram needed to raise a capital appeal of £15 million, targeted initially at major donors, to build a Centre of Excellence for Children, incorporating welfare and training facilities.
The idea created was based around street art , which was used across various media (brochure, banners web and film). The balloon device within the logo could be isolated to demonstrate various communication requirements such as amount of funds gained to date and subject headings to navigate through the web.

Awareness and Fundraising campaign

Give up clothes for good

An event name and campaign was required to encourage people to drop off their unwanted clothes at their local TK Maxx store to be sold in Cancer UK shops to raise money for research into childhood cancers.

Each bag of donated items could raise up to £25 for Cancer Research UK and since 2004 1.6 million bags have been recycled raising over £34 million for Cancer Research UK’s work to help more children and young people survive cancer.

Major Donors campaign

UNHCR – "Closer"

The project was undertaken for UNHCR to invite major donors to learn and support the work of UNHCR through four informative modules released over 18 months: Registration, Shelter, Care, and Education. The introduction to the program featured a welcome pack including a video book called “Get closer to UNHCR” which contained a film that activated when the book was opened.

This was followed up with the progressive release of the four information modules, and donation appeals to enable the work of UNHCR to continue.

Fundraising Strategy and Communication Program

The Chigiana Music Academy

The Accademia Chigiana in Siena is one of the most ancient and prestigious musical academies in the world. In 2019 the Academy decided to actively and strategically involve its audiences in the philanthropic support of its aims. Raise conducted a strategic review and developed a complete fundraising and communication strategy to include on and off-line assets to support the launch of a high-profile donor club, a membership program for the public and the Alumni program.

Legacy Campaign

Help Musicians UK

The musicians, who the charity help are largely unknown to the wider targeted audience for legacy donations, their love of music being produced by more famous musicians. So a campaign idea was created, using print advertisements, focusing on famous, past musicians who have all left a legacy to music through their creativity and talent. The approach was then followed up, on request, with a legacy pack to enable the charity to plan for the future.
