  1. 1. Case Study
  2. 2. What is Capital One Card Lab Connect? A free credit card affinity program that allows you to: • Create custom credit card designs with your logo and images • Market the credit card to your supporters • Let donors support you simply by completing their everyday shopping & purchasing.
  3. 3. Who is Saving Shelter Pets? • Saving Shelter Pets (SSP) is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) animal welfare organization. They facilitate rescues from high-kill animal shelters and promote spay & neuter, in an effort to give all pets the chance at life they truly deserve. • They are a small, all-volunteer organization with supporters and volunteers located throughout the country. They rely solely on donations to continue their rescue and spay/neuter efforts. Their programs include: – Rescue & Transport focused on saving cats and dogs from high-kill shelters in the Southeastern US and moving them to safe, no-kill rescues in the Northeast. – Puppy Promises not only rescues puppies, but also spays their mother to help reduce pet overpopulation. – Bernie’s Buddies helps to treat heartworm positive dogs that are saved through the Rescue & Transport program. – Spay & Neuter offers financial assistance to low-income pet owners in several Ohio and Georgia counties.
  4. 4. Why Credit Card Fundraising? With Capital One® Card Lab Connect, Saving Shelter Pets wanted to: • Provide an alternative to cash donations for donors with limited funds. • Test an affinity program typically reserved for larger national charities with a small, but passionate audience. • Leverage proven communication channels to promote an offer that has mass appeal and viral potential.
