The booming business of charity Hard-sell: Cornucopia fundraisers at work. By JIM CHIPP Some Wellington charity supporters may be surprised to learn how much of their donation ends up in private Australian hands. One fundraising company charges charities 80 to 90 per cent of the first year s donations and its fee is paid up front. Brisbane-based Cornucopia Fundraising employs people on New Zealand streets to ask passers-by for monthly donations for various charities and in the last week they have been active in the Wellington region on behalf of New Zealand Red Cross. Fundraisers worked in Lower Hutt, Petone, Wellington, Porirua, Wainuiomata and Paraparaumu. Cornucopia director Gregor Drugowitsch emailed a response to our questions from Brisbane. He said Cornucopia employed 25 fundraisers in New Zealand on behalf of the Fred Hollows Foun- dation, Oxfam, IHC and New Zea- land Red Cross. Fundraisers were engaged as employees or contractors, with various different payment structures, including hourly rates and performance-related pay. How much they were paid varied depending on overall suc- cess in signing up supporters, donor feedback, cancellation rates and lengths of service, and the most successful fundraisers were regularly taken overseas to see the charities work to keep them motivated and inspired. Red Cross Project Partners manager Kalimar Donvin-Irons said Cornucopia s fee was 80 per cent of the donor s contributions in the first year, or almost 10 months payments. Ms Donvin-Irons said Cornu- copia had been fund-raising for Red Cross for 10 years and the programme generates millions of dollars each year for its work. Part of the fee is paid as an immediate lump sum and the rest as a portion of the first year s donations. Oxfam spokesman Jason Gar- man said Oxfam paid Cornucopia an up-front fee for signing up each pledge, equating to 22.5 per cent of the total expected payments over the four-year period the aver- age donor contributed. That equates to 90 per cent of the first year s donations, and the fee was paid within four months of the donor signing up. Regular donors are crucial for Oxfam to bring lasting change to poor communities. They enable us to plan ahead and deliver effective development programmes through having a predictable funding stream. Donors were offered options of 70 cents a day, $1 a day and $1.67 a day, and they were free to cancel contributions any time. When professional fundraising appeared in New Zealand a num- ber of charities, including Red Cross and Oxfam set up the Public Fundraising Regulatory Associ- ation. Association manager Karen Ward said it was a self-regulatory body with a strict code of conduct. We don t have knowledge of particular contracts. We have a disclosure state- ment and that is very transparent on the pledge form. The associ- ation s code of conduct required pledge documents to contain a dis- closure statement that the aver- age cost to charities -- the amount paid to the fundraising company -- should be approximately 20 per cent of the average contribution, but did not prescribe how or when it should be paid. She said face-to-face fund- raising was the most cost-effective method of raising awareness and also created an ongoing relation- ship for four or five years but it had costs, as did all forms of fundraising. We sometimes forget that this fundraising allows these charities to achieve some amazing results across many deserving causes. Ms Ward said the association also co-ordinated with city councils to roster the member charities activities in Wellington, Auckland and Hamilton. It asked the councils to make membership of the association compulsory for all face-to-face fundraisers working in the cities. Wellington City Council spokes- man Richard MacLean said the council did not have the power to do that, but officers dealt with the association regularly to co- ordinate fundraising activities. Staff occasionally had to move fundraisers along when their activities obstructed narrow sections of footpaths, or crossings.
