Like so many other independent news sites, The Forward needed a strategic partner to substantially increase digital fundraising through strengthened brand awareness and new donor acquisition.
We built on The Forward's tried-and-true brand, leveraging the voices their audiences loved and were hungry to hear more from, and created a campaign with a healthy balance of donor stewardship and fundraising asks. We also streamlined their online donation process and implemented smart list segmentation, yielding more pathways for first-time donors and one-to-three-figure gifts.
