Why does your support matter?

Supporting SOFII advances the good works that these people promote, day in day out. But don’t take it from us, hear what one of our SOFII fans has to say: 

‘When I was first told about the SOFII website, I was sceptical – a free site that shared fundraising initiatives from around the world – is this possible? And then I realised it is possible, very possible, brilliantly possible.’ 
The SOFII site has an amazing array of top class, proven fundraising success stories and a mountain of ideas. To me, this site has been gold. I refer to it all of the time – it’s like you get to see the secret recipe for fundraising.  
I have used SOFII for direct mail, donor care, thank you letters, donor surveys, campaign idea, bequests (legacy) communications and also just for my own personal professional development in learning more about the scope of fundraising. This site puts you at the forefront of fundraising today and can immediately steer you towards not only creating a successful campaigns, but developing a better relationship with your donors. I couldn’t ask for a better teacher. Thank you.’ - Julie Keith, Research and Business Development Manager, Centre for Companion Animal health, School of Veterinary Science, University of Queensland, Australia.
