The web­inars helped "create a sense of community early on," says John Overy, director of digital marketing for World Vision, by making supporters feel like they were part of a large campaign.
Sometimes, Mr. Overy says, the charity's staff battle over which program is going to be touted in which space and how often. Those who run DIY programs need to stick up for them, he says. "You have to be an advocate and fight for marketing opportunities." Another major challenge has been retaining donors who give to a friend's or loved one's campaign but don't organize the event themselves. The mind-set of those donors is often, "I'm helping a friend. I'm helping a cause. I'm not giving out of motivation to help the charity," says Mr. Overy. For now, World Vision sends major-gifts fundraisers information about donors who make sizable contributions to DIY campaigns so those donors will get personal attention, he says. Smaller donors get an initial email thanking them for their gift, then are put in the same fundraising email and messaging streams that serve all one-time donors, he says.
