Thames Valley & Chiltern Air Ambulance Service Fly High With AdvantageNFP
AdvantageNFP Fundraiser powered by Redbourn Business Systems is pleased to announce that having been selected to deliver a new CRM system for Thames Valley and Chiltern Air Ambulance (TVACAA), the project has now gone live.
TVACAA is the only charity responsible for funding and operating the air ambulance serving the communities of Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire, providing patients with life-saving medical care.
The TVACAA were looking to further develop the services they offer with increased operational hours including night flying and better medical facilities on board the aircraft. In order to reach these goals the TVACAA needs to build long term sustainable revenue streams, and to reduce its reliance on lottery funding whilst nurturing more direct donors, corporate and business partners. TVACAA decided to implement a new fundraising CRM platform and strategy to help achieve their objectives.

We were immediately impressed by Advantage’s ability to help us manage FCS events, and the no-hassle option of cross-referencing members with their local MPs.
We’re a small team, and it’s been particularly pleasing to see how the Redbourn staff have understood our workload, anticipated our needs and helped through the implementation process.
