£2.3 million raised to fight homelessness
Whilst working in the Innovation & Planning team, Jeremy managed Shelter UK’s 2012 Christmas above-the-line integrated campaign which was very successful, resulting in over 15,000 PSMS text donations, 1,100 RG converted donors (from PSMS), significant online and offline income and an overall result of £2.3 million (vs. £2.1 million target).
While working for Amnesty International Australia:
Established their Digital Acquisition program in 2015, now generating over $600,000 in income and over 4,000 new donors (both regular and cash gifts) each year from direct donations.
Reduced new Face to Face donor attrition by over 3% in 2017 vs 2016 by implementing early retention initiatives and a new bespoke supporter journey.
