Press release, Copenhagen, 30 August 2021
Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, the public’s desire to help others remains steady, if not even greater. A report from the Swedish Fundraising Association1 shows a sharp decline in donations from companies during 2020 – yet over 60% of charities stated that contributions from the public increased. The total level of donations remained the same as the previous year.
To unlock these donations, the role of marketing automation has been more important than ever in the past two years. To overcome restrictions and reach willing donors, more and more charity organisations are looking to digital channels. According to a November 2020 poll by the British Charities Aid Foundation,2 almost half of UK charities (47 %) had already changed the way that they fundraised due to the pandemic, whilst just over half (53 %) said they needed to make a shift to a more online fundraising approach because of the crisis.
Better customer experiences at the Danish Red Cross
For those organisations which have already adopted digital tools, the benefits are clear. An example is the Danish Red Cross, which has used Agillic for their fundraising communication since 2019. With Agillic’s flexible data model, they have built optimised communication flows and have increased efficiency in both text and email communication. Says Charlotte Albrechtsen Christensen, Head of Individual Giving and Fundraising at the Danish Red Cross:
“Agillic supports our strategic objective of creating loyalty – and on an operational level, the platform enables us to be more efficient in our daily work.”
Fundraising innovation at DanChurchAid
Another example is DanChurchAid, who has been using Agillic to reimagine their digital fundraising approach since 2019. Kenneth Andersen, Digital Project Manager at DanChurchAid comments:
“Fortunately, a lot of people wish to support DanChurchAid. Part of our job is to make it as easy as possible for them to do so by reaching them in the relevant channels. We also have an obligation to spend the funds we are given wisely, meaning working effectively, to be able to pass as much as possible on to people in need. It is part of our core values to continually innovate and rethink our approach both in the field and in our fundraising and communication activities. And this is what we see the Agillic platform can help us do – and in the process of selecting our new customer marketing platform, we discovered there are a lot of qualified Agillic competencies that can help us fulfil our ambitions.”
More money left for the cause
For Agillic, NGOs and charities represent a high-priority industry with great potential. With our recent win, today there are nine organisations within the industry on our client list, including DanChurchAid, Hjerteforeningen, Børn Vilkår, and the Red Cross in Denmark and Sweden. For these clients, benefits include personalised flows to increase loyalty, a higher degree of efficiency in fundraising activities, and a seamless experience across owned and paid media. Put simply, Agillic’s NGO and charity clients use our platform to increase their donations and, therefore, their impact.
Emre Gürsoy, CEO of Agillic comments:
“Working with the NGO and charity industry feels especially meaningful and rewarding for us, and we are happy more and more organisations are discovering the difference our software can make, especially in these times. Attracting and retaining loyal donors with respectful and personalised communication – and spending less money on administration and more on the cause – are true benefits for our clients.”

Nobody wants to play vaccine cop but the aggressive attitude of some unvaccinated patrons is making a tough situation worse Across the country, such as here in San Francisco, businesses such as restaurants are requiring proof of Covid vaccination from customers.

At the end of a recent conference, the perennial question arose — once again — as to whether the United States faces a retirement crisis. While the NRRI depends on a number of specific assumptions, anything close to 50% at risk does seem like a serious problem to me. The conference participant bolstering the no-crisis view cited a survey prepared by the Society of Actuaries.
Hurricane Ida knocked nearly all of the oil production in the Gulf of Mexico region. Oil prices, however, are little changed and natural gas prices are falling. There’s no doubt Ida was bad for oil production.
In court filings submitted more than 18 months ago, Holmes' lawyers said they planned to present evidence that Ramesh "Sunny" Balwani abused her emotionally and psychologically in a relationship that spanned more than a decade. Theranos, which Holmes founded in 2003 at the age of 19, collapsed in March 2018 when she, Balwani and the $9 billion company were charged with fraud by U.S. regulators. Theranos had made Holmes, a Stanford University dropout, a Silicon Valley star.

Hong Kong-based Esquel Group, one of the world's biggest shirtmakers, said it had resumed litigation to remove its Xinjiang unit from an American blacklist after it failed to reach an agreement with the US Commerce Department on what conditions it could be removed. Earlier this month, Esquel won a rare victory over a US blacklisting when the End-User Review Committee, a US inter-agency body, voted to remove its Changji Esquel unit under certain conditions from the so-called entity list, which pr

(Reuters) -Sea Ltd's Shopee took just two years to become Brazil's most-downloaded shopping app, winning users to its low-cost marketplace with its game-changing approach to e-commerce: in-app mini-games offering coupons to winning users. The Singapore-based company has combined online shopping with the gaming nous of its separate mobile game arm Garena – creator of "Free Fire", Brazil's most-downloaded title for eight consecutive quarters – to generate sales analysts estimated at almost a third of local champion Magazine Luiza SA. Back home, Shopee only needed five years to become Southeast Asia's most-visited e-commerce website, overtaking the likes of Lazada, backed by China's Alibaba Group Holding Ltd, and Tokopedia, backed by Japan's SoftBank Group Corp.

The Russell 1000 Index is a market-capitalization-weighted index of the 1,000 largest publicly traded companies in the U.S. It represents approximately 92% of the total market capitalization of all listed stocks in the U.S. equity market. Value investing is a factor-based investing strategy that involves picking stocks that you believe are trading for less than what they are intrinsically worth, usually by measuring the ratio of the stock's price to one or more fundamental business metrics. Value investors believe that if a business is cheap compared to its intrinsic value, in this case as measured by its P/E ratio, the stock price may rise faster than others as the price comes back in line with the worth of the company.
