The Eve Appeal

Reduces Workload and Costs with ImportOmatic™

The Eve Appeal was formed in 2005 with the objective of raising money to fund the world-class research programme at University College’s Department of Women’s Cancer. The programme focuses on improving the prevention, detection, treatment and care of gynaecological cancers.


  • In recent years, The Eve Appeal has been encountering more and more instances where they have had to import large amounts of data into The Raiser’s Edge®.
  • Many hours were being spent by staff manually entering information from lists of donors and supporters, as well as data lists purchased for mailing lists.
  • There was also massive potential for data to be missed or entered inaccurately, which could have a negative effect on future campaigns.


  • The Eve Appeal became aware of ImportOmatic at Blackbaud’s European Conference, and decided to investigate it further.
  • After viewing a presentation on the importing plug-in, they could see it was exactly what they needed to solve their importing problems.
  • ImportOmatic would finally provide The Eve Appeal with data that they could rely upon and be completely confident of its accuracy.


  • The Eve Appeal regularly uses ImportOmatic to import all bulk data lists into The Raiser’s Edge, and as a result is seeing significant savings in both time and costs.
  • Tasks that previously took hours to complete can now be carried out in a matter of minutes, meaning time can be better spent on activities which will specifically generate an income for the charity.
  • Mailings and their responses can now be dealt with in-house, rather than having to rely on a fulfilment house to carry out the job on behalf of the charity. This saves the charity a substantial amount of money.
