Kidney Research UKs online fundraising jumps by 66% in 2010.

Statistics released by Kidney Research UK show significant growth in its online fundraising, from January to June 2010, as their online donations reached GBP360,000, an increase of GBP145,000 (66%) versus the first half of 2009.

KENDAL, UK, August 22, 2010 ( "This is an outstanding performance in a very tough economic environment," says Peter Storey, Director of Marketing at Kidney Research UK. "The growth in our online fundraising has contributed to our ability to release more funds for vital research projects."
Kidney Research UK uses a variety of online fundraising methods but the biggest increase in 2010 has come via their own branded integrated event registration and online fundraising pages. "A key part of our brand building strategy is helped by promoting own branded fundraising pages provided by AltaContact." Storey advises.
"71% of our online fundraising revenue is now from our own pages which is a fantastic achievement. It means that we are improving how we deliver our message and building direct relationships with our supporters. This strategy is yielding the results we were seeking."

"It's vital," Peter Storey continues, "that in these difficult times charities effectively use the tools at their disposal and analyse what works best for them."
"For the first time we are in sight of raising GBP1m online. This may come as early as 2011 based on the hard work we and AltaContact are putting in. When you consider that our total online voluntary income was around GBP0.3m as recently as 2007, these are huge strides forward." Peter Storey concludes.
John Samuel, Managing Director of AltaContact Ltd says, "Kidney Research UK is an excellent example of a charity actively promoting their own brand online and a charity that isn't afraid to test the waters of the technology available to them."

"We are regularly launching new features to the platform such as: a Facebook application; an integrated contact manager which enables charities to identify strong and weak fundraisers to give praise and encouragement; more facilities to be used by charity corporate partners whose staff organise events and fundraise, and delivery of optimised event registration and fundraising pages to mobile hand sets. All of this is geared to helping charities reach out to fundraisers and donors wherever they may be and encourage more and higher value giving," Samuel concludes.

AltaContact has been working with Kidney Research UK for 2 years providing online fundraising solutions. AltaContact works exclusively for UK charities helping them to raise more donors' GBP's online and retain more of every donor's GBP. Further information is available at

Baltimore Medical Malpractice lawyers in Action

Filing a claim for medical malpractice is the patient's chance to right the wrong that has been done to him or her, not just by recuperating a monetary award to cover expenses and damages, but to also make a difference in the system so that the next patient gets ...
