How RNL Helps Higher Education Engage Donors With Impact Across Channels
At RNL, we’re always at work putting together coordinated and compelling communications for our higher education partners. I took a look at the appeals we’ve produced over the past year, and there were a ton of contenders for best in show. Here’s just five great examples of engaging appeals we’ve helped create.
Showing impact for COVID giving drives powerful stewardship
Johns Hopkins University has been a key hero in the COVID pandemic, with life-saving research and medical care as well as crucial data. Donors helped make it happen, and we were proud to partner with the university to help thank them
Giving impact fits right into core brand messaging
We helped Texas Wesleyan lean hard into their “smaller, smarter” brand messaging with integrated mail appeals. Sharing key impact by giving level, with the items that evoke alumni memories (like the popular café) and even the percentage that a gift contributes to tuition are smart ways to bring the impact message home to donors. Combined with emphasis on the ease of giving, these communications are a hit.
A festive holiday sweater engages donors across social, mobile and email
The University of Arkansas engaged donors across key channels with a definitely not ugly sweater providing some warmth for the end-of-calendar-year appeal. The integration and creativity of this messaging across digital advertising, social media, and appeals is a great example of what we’re proud to do with an omnichannel approach.
A recent grad shares life-changing donor impact
Down to the inclusion of a picture of the alumni ambassador who shared how donors changed his live at UConn, this communication really personalizes giving impact. The personal story combined with an emphasis on loyal giving is a real winner.
Strong brand emphasis combined with pride engage alumni to give
The powerful suggestion to “come home” and support Bowie State University, combined with strong brand, excitement, and pride messaging make this digital suite of communications compelling and encourages action.
Bowie State goes bold with Black & Gold in digital and social messages.
