Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan

Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan Gains Confidence with Blackbaud NetCommunity Grow

The Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan is a provincial charity that raises awareness and funds for pediatric medical research, equipment, patient care services, and the upcoming provincial Children’s Hospital. The Foundation is the Saskatchewan member of Children’s Miracle Network and is 100 percent dedicated to Saskatchewan children and their hospital. The Foundation is also a proud partner with the Saskatoon and Regina Qu’Appelle Health Regions on the Children’s Hospital project.

Challenge

  • The Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan’s website was static and not user-friendly. The website was not engaging or eye-catching, and finding information was cumbersome.
  • With only one person responsible for the website, the organization needed an easy way to maintain and update the site, especially when transferring information from the website to its database, The Raiser’s Edge®.
  • In anticipation of its upcoming capital campaign, the Foundation wanted to be able to accept online donations.
  • Additionally, the organization wanted to limit the amount of time and expertise required to support and maintain the application.

Solution

  • The Foundation selected Blackbaud NetCommunity Grow™ as it enabled online donations and seamlessly connected to The Raiser’s Edge.
  • The Foundation was attracted to the template website functionality of Blackbaud NetCommunity Grow. The limited staff needed a solution that was simple, manageable, and time efficient.
  • Blackbaud NetCommunity Grow provided the interactive, interesting, and visually appealing website that the organization wanted.
  • The organization also chose to use Blackbaud Application Hosting™ to unload the responsibility of performing regularly scheduled maintenance on Blackbaud experts and to ensure that the most up-to-date and secure applications were being used

Results

  • Increase in website donations: Since launching its site, the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan has received tens of thousands of dollars from online donors.
  • Time and money saved: With the email functionality in Blackbaud NetCommunity Grow, the organization has saved thousands of dollars in printing, postage, and paper costs — not to mention staff time — by emailing its communications to selected constituents.
  • Sense of pride: Finally, the organization feels confident directing the public to its site. They know that visitors will find what they need and will enjoy their online experience with the organization.
