Protecting citizens through ethical fundraising
Certain people in Australia (i.e. low-income) are being protected from aggressive face-to-face sales strategies by regulation.
However, even the fundraiser with the best intentions can accidentally knock on a door of a protected person. Simply because the address information is not readily available for her during her work. Fundraising agencies used to work with printed lists of blocked addresses. But in the chaos of the day-to-day, small mistakes like missing one of these addresses are inevitable. With Briggs+Walker software, addresses can be blocked from canvassing areas, preventing the fundraiser to sign addresses up.
“Before, we trusted that the fundraisers follow the rules themselves. Now they cannot make a mistake anymore. This gives our Amnesty International Australia fundraiser the confidence that she’s not knocking on an address that is blocked. But it also shows that we take responsibility for professional and ethical fundraising, together with our agency partners. I know there is no other software able to tackle this issue in Australia”
