Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation - Gold Appeal - Putting digital first
Bigfoot Fundraising was engaged to run the digital fundraising for the 10th annual Gold Appeal
We managed social ads, website optimisations, email marketing, search engine marketing and organic social
An integrated multi-channel campaign with a digital focus helped SCHF exceed their fundraising target, raising over $6.5 million, their biggest Gold Appeal ever!

'It was an absolute pleasure to work with Bigfoot. We knew we were in safe hands when they immersed themselves in our story and vision, and swiftly produced a detailed plan and timeline of what was needed to achieve our desired outcomes. The most impressive part of their campaign was the paid advertising on our social media accounts. After creating a number of adverts and intelligently-segmented lists to use, Bigfoot proceeded to test and measure like I’ve never seen before – rounds and rounds of testing different images, text and concepts – each time getting closer to the adverts and the customers that were going to have the biggest impact. The results and level of engagement blew us away - we had by far the biggest exhibition success to date. We are excited to engage in their services again soon!'
- Gordon Watson, Operations & Marketing Coordinator for The Torch
