Tell us about Project Charley. What inspired its start?

Project Charley was founded as a result of a tragic car accident in June of 2016 involving Barney Sinclair and his three children on a road trip to Oklahoma. Charley, age 5, was injured the worst and began a long road to recovery. After many months in the hospital, Charley was able to come home and begin her rehabilitation.

Part of her rehabilitation included a weekly three and a half hour commute from Austin, TX to Ft. Worth to visit the Neurological Recovery Center to spend time on the Lokomat - a state of the art piece of rehab equipment that was proving to help her walk again.

After months of making the round trip to Ft. Worth, we founded Project Charley as a non-profit organization to bring a LokoMat to Austin, TX.

Our Mission: Create access to specialized neurological rehabilitation for hundreds of central Texans by bringing cutting-edge equipment and resources to Austin, TX.

Execution is Everything: To ensure a sustainable nonprofit organization, Project Charley has forged relationships with strategic partners , identified a perfect operating partner here in Austin, and built an impactful advisory board to help pave the way.

We will tell 25 incredible stories like Charley’s, each tied to specific campaign to raise funds for equipment that will change many lives. Our first campaign is to fund the purchase of a Lokomat device. See below for more information.

What sorts of challenges do you face?

With no prior experience in establishing and running the day to day operations of a nonprofit, we faced several challenges and important decisions in the initial formation of Project Charley.

We were very fortunate to connect with strategic partners and key volunteers to help develop a website and video content to tell our first Story and give us the foundation to start our fundraising efforts.

The support from our growing network has been nothing short of amazing, but time and bandwidth continue to be our biggest challenge in achieving our goals

We have developed a good plan for the next 12 months and focused on executing our Mission.

Commentaires et témoignages des clients

Peter Walle

In just under a year, we’ve added over 100 recurring donors to our network— a 20% increase in donations. And in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic, 2020 was our most successful year of fundraising yet. Donorbox’s simple, easy to use integrations have played an undeniable role in driving this growth. Under the hood, Donorbox’s control panels give our team quick day to day insights on donor retention and campaign performance. The control panel also makes it easy for us to get our entire team involved with donor relationships.

Depuis la mise en place de Donorbox, le nombre de donateurs mensuels et récurrents de Truthout a plus que doublé. Actuellement, les dons de soutien comme ceux-ci représentent plus de 20 % de notre budget annuel.

Dr. Abraham George

Donorbox nous a donné une plus grande visibilité et nous a permis d'entrer en contact avec de nouveaux donateurs, ce qui nous a permis de nous rapprocher de nos objectifs annuels de collecte de fonds.

Clint Smith

Donorbox a joué un rôle déterminant dans la facilitation de nos dons en ligne. Avec une intégration transparente dans notre site web et des caractéristiques et fonctionnalités faciles à utiliser, nous avons été extrêmement satisfaits en tant qu'organisation et nous recommanderions Donorbox à toute organisation à but non lucratif qui cherche à rationaliser ses efforts de campagne.

Austin Meadows

Donorbox a répondu à toutes nos attentes en matière de logiciel de collecte de fonds, et votre plateforme a intégré des fonctionnalités que nous avions demandées lors de nos premières discussions. Maintenant, nous voyons tout ce que nous voulions et ces modifications ne sont que de la crème glacée sur la tarte.
