  • 1. Haley WardRobeson County Humane Society Fundraiser Advertising Campaign
  • 2. Haley Ward 1. Executive Summary Our agency acquired a contract to assist a nonprofit organization, the Robeson County HumaneSociety, with increasing the organizations awareness, increasing profits and the amount ofconsistent volunteers. RCHS has already involved themselves with fundraising efforts including an annual golftournament fundraiser. We hope to increase awareness about the upcoming golf tournamentthrough print ads. We also plan on targeting the need for volunteers by targeting college students on campus. Byplacing a booth on campus with volunteer sign-up sheets, we hope to acquire enough volunteers toattend the PetSmart adoption event in May. The booth will also have a donation jar for those thatwant to help but can’t volunteer. Those that volunteer for the event will then be sent out mailersafterwards to try and maintain repeat volunteers. The following ad strategy is focused on fixing the organizations weaknesses, and gaining enoughstability to increase advertising, budget, and volunteer reliability. By relying on low-budgetadvertising such as newspaper and Public Service Announcements in radio and television we hopeto increase awareness and strengthen the whole of the organization. The campaign will run for four weeks, and then an assessment will be done. The campaign, withany corrections needed after the four weeks, will then be given over to RCHS to continue operatingon their own.
  • 3. Haley Ward 2. Situational AnalysisStrengths:• Robeson County Humane Society is a non-profit organization that has a good community image• They are dedicated to the care and placement of rescued animals, and have started programs that will enrich the community and the lives of animals• RCHS offers reduced rates for spay and neutering for low income pet owners• They also started the New Leash on Life Program that allows selected inmates to train dogs to make them more adoptable, and provide a type of rehabilitation for the inmatesWeaknesses:• RCHS has a good image but is not well known. Their lack of consumer awareness leaves them hurting for volunteers. With the lack of consistent volunteers they are unable to participate in certain events or throw more fundraisers.Opportunities/Threats:• RCHS has predominately relied on word of mouth advertising to improve their volunteer insufficiency• They have the opportunities to attend free events, but due to their lack of acquiring reliable volunteers they have not been able to participate. They are more focused on completing their major fundraising events that occur once a year. 3. Objectives Increasing awareness of RCHS in the surrounding community• Acquire more volunteers through different mediums and events• Focus on keeping both long term and repeat volunteers through mail and social media• Hold a promotional event on campus to acquire volunteers for an event at PetSmart• Promote long term goals to increase ability to participate in local events

  • 8. Haley Ward We will measure our advertising plan effectiveness at the end of May, once our majorfundraisers are finished and measure the outcome of the golf tournament and compare it to lastyears. We will also measure the increase in the amount of volunteers and whether or not theymade a onetime appearance or they repeatedly came back. This data will help us to see if ourobjectives have been met and whether we need to re-evaluate or continue with our advertisingand consider planning more events.
