In the news

A trend that I’m noticing more lately is for-profits leaning into the social good space with elaborate CSR initiatives. Case in point: Honda’s release of its first all-electric SUV in its “Keep Dreaming” campaign, an effort to showcase its commitment to global carbon neutrality by 2050.

With a full-blown marketing plan — from mainstream television to a presence at TwitchCon — Honda proves what it means to go all-in on multichannel marketing.

The Peninsula Community Foundation (PCF) of Virginia is dedicated to serving the increasing needs of its diverse population by investing in its future.

Thinking beyond just email, PCF expanded its efforts for Give Local 757 to include a giving-day-specific email campaign, retargeted digital ads for website visitors, and intentional outreach for mobile devices at specific GPS locations.

This multichannel effort resulted in the organization bringing in $360,000 in donations, 13,000 in newsletter subscribers, and a net new audience of 66,000, proving just how successful a giving day can be when done right.
