88% of online petition signers new to Global Fund for Women; email list grows by thousands

Two weeks ago, we highlighted Global Fund for Women, a leader in advancing the rights of women and girls worldwide, and its efforts to mobilize supporters around the globe with Soapbox Petitions and Salesforce.

This campaign on behalf of survivors of rape in conflict areas such as eastern Congo and Syria garnered thousands of signatures in just days. As of this afternoon, more than 9,100 supporters have signed their petition.

What’s more, the overwhelming percentage of these supporters are new to Global Fund for Women:

“The petition’s clean interface and embedded social sharing tools have made the petition very attractive to sign and to share. We have acquired a huge number of new supporters thanks to this campaign: 88% of signers so far are new to the Global Fund for Women,” said Laura Shapiro, Director of Online Communications.

With Soapbox Petitions and its integration with Salesforce, supporter information is saved directly to Salesforce, allowing Global Fund for Women to easily determine the real-time progress of the campaign in gathering new supporters.
