Revolutionising Fundraising Operations: Introducing the Street and Door Diary Software

Discover how Cii's Street and Door Diary software revolutionises fundraising with compliance, efficiency, and trust, empowering charities for impact!

Charities Institute Ireland (Cii) is proud to announce the launch of the new Street and Door Diary app, marking a significant milestone in the realm of face-to-face fundraising. Developed in collaboration with MadeMedia, a renowned Canadian digital agency, this cutting-edge platform promises to redefine the way charities conduct fundraising activities across Ireland.

Addressing Regulatory Compliance and Operational Efficiency

Arising from concerns highlighted in the 2017 Report of the Consultative Panel on Charitable Fundraising, the Street and Door Diary software represents a concerted effort to enhance transparency and regulation within the fundraising sector. In response to these concerns, Cii embarked on a journey to develop a solution that would not only streamline fundraising operations but also ensure compliance with regulatory standards. With the regulatory framework provided by the Charities Act 2009 and oversight from the Charities Regulator, the Street and Door Diary software offers charities a comprehensive toolset to navigate the complexities of face-to-face fundraising site management while upholding the highest standards of integrity and accountability for the public.

Centralised Management for Enhanced Coordination

The Street and Door Diary software serves as a centralised hub for managing face-to-face fundraising activities. Its intuitive features provide organisations with unprecedented visibility into available sites, scheduling, and live communication channels between users. By centralising data and streamlining processes, charities and third-party agencies can efficiently coordinate their fundraising campaigns, minimising scheduling conflicts and maximising resource allocation. This enhanced coordination not only improves operational efficiency but also enables charities to optimise their fundraising efforts, ultimately leading to greater impact and success in their mission-driven initiatives.

Evolution through Collaborative Innovation

Following the cessation of the 2017 pilot program in 2020, Cii embarked on a collaborative endeavor with MadeMedia and the Face to Face Fundraising Forum to develop the Street and Door Diary software for the Irish marketplace. Drawing upon the expertise and insights of the working group, MadeMedia's territory management software underwent a transformative evolution, culminating in a sophisticated digital platform that prioritises compliance, fundraising efficacy, and public interest. Through close collaboration and iterative development, Cii and MadeMedia have created a solution that not only meets the immediate needs of charities and agencies but also anticipates and adapts to the evolving landscape of face-to-face fundraising.

Promoting Trust and Accountability

Users of the Street and Door Diary software adhere to the Face to Face Fundraising Code and Diary User Code of Conduct. This commitment fosters accountability with the public, showcasing dedication to ethical public fundraising practices. By upholding these rigorous standards, charities and agencies bolster their reputation and credibility, instilling confidence in donors and fortifying the integrity of the fundraising sector.

Cost Considerations

While there is a cost associated with using the software, it is essential to understand the rationale behind it. The fees contribute to the ongoing development, maintenance, and support of the Street and Door Diary platform. Moreover, they ensure the sustainability of the software, enabling charities to continue their fundraising efforts effectively. By investing in the Street and Door Diary software, charities are not only gaining access to a powerful compliance tool but also supporting the long-term viability and impact of the platform for the benefit of the entire sector.

Empowering Fundraisers through Education and Training

In tandem with software enhancements, Cii offers comprehensive training through its Certificate in Regular Giving and Face-to-Face Fundraising. This initiative equips fundraising teams and agency staff with the necessary knowledge and skills to represent their organisations professionally and ethically. By investing in the professional development of fundraisers, Cii empowers charities to uphold the highest standards of integrity and accountability, thereby fostering a culture of excellence and trust within the fundraising sector.

Embracing a Future of Impactful Philanthropy

As Cii champions innovation and collaboration, it invites organisations across Ireland to embrace the transformative potential of Face to Face Fundraising and harness the power of the Street and Door Diary software. Together, we can forge a future where philanthropy thrives, transparency prevails, and charitable initiatives make a meaningful difference in communities nationwide. By leveraging technology, fostering collaboration, and upholding the highest standards of integrity, charities can navigate the complexities of face-to-face fundraising with confidence, ultimately driving positive change and creating a brighter future for all.
