Door to Door in the community

I’m already a donor. Why didn’t your fundraisers know this when they came to my house?

Thank you so much for your support and please accept our apologies for the door to door fundraisers not recognizing you as a donor. As we have engaged the services of an external provider, Globalfaces Direct, we have not provided them access to our donor records.

I was interrupted at home by door to door fundraisers and this was very annoying.

We’re very sorry you feel that way and we do not want to annoy anyone. Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation has engaged the services of a door to door fundraising company: Globalfaces.

Why are you using door to door fundraisers?

Support for Royal Columbian Hospital is needed more than ever and we have chosen this method of fundraising to help us expand our donor base of support.
We have begun the second phase of our unprecedented $1.49 billion redevelopment. A new multi-storey Acute Care Tower will transform the hospital, elevate its critical care services, and provide highly sophisticated technologies and treatments.
With Door to door fundraising, our ambassadors will be able to advise of the vital work that is happening at the Columbian. We hope you will be inspired to give a donation through this more personal approach and if not, we thank you for your time and interest in our activities.

What is the cost of using an outside company for your fundraising efforts?

Being a leader specializing in this type of fundraising, we chose Globalfaces to do this work as it would not interfere with our day to day usual operations. The rate is very competitive and given our need to expand our donor base of support, we strongly believe this method is a cost effective method.
