Our Tribute Fund web app for St Peter’s Hospice has raised £50,000 in its first six months.
The app allows users to set up and share tribute pages to loved ones who were cared for by the Bristol-based hospice, and to donate to light a virtual candle in their name.
The Tribute app has led a significant increase in online giving for the hospice since launching the new *Hummingbird CMS-based site from Tickbox in September last year.
Online donations of nearly £25,000, as well as shop sales and event registration, have seen total direct online income for the site top £100,000 in six months.
Also, the website had the largest number of visits ever during March – 21% higher than the average for the previous 12 months and 30% higher than the 12 month average prior to the new website (7,617).
*Hummingbird is Tickbox’s Content Management System, designed and built on open source platforms to support the work of charities.
