Making the most of our fundraising activities

Keeping Children Safe has a duty to make sure that we are spending donations wisely and that may mean undertaking research and/or analysis to inform our decisions. We want to send the most effective messages that we can in the most efficient way possible. To do this, to the best of our ability, we may carry out the following activities:

Segmentation – this is when the information we have obtained such as postcodes of donors, age of supporters and whether donations have been given regularly is analysed. This helps us to provide people with the most relevant information to identify additional possibilities for them to be actively involved with Keeping Children Safe

Prospect profiling – we may engage agencies to help us identify people among our supporters who are able to support at a higher level, using publicly available records such as the electoral roll, land records, ‘rich lists’, Who’s Who publications and Companies House records. We may use this information to invite potential supporters to events which may be of interest to them and to recruit ambassadors and/or patrons

Targeted fundraising communications – we may supplement what we know about you with information from public, third-party sources, so we have a better understanding of your background, which helps us to ensure any requests for additional support are tailored to you and how you might support us. These sources may provide us with the following: your parliamentary constituency, an estimate of your age, an estimate of the size and composition of your household and information about your interests.

The databases that we keep our supporter information on are held securely within our network and are not sold, traded or exchanged with other organisations, whether they are charitable organisations or not.
