Portfolio

New identity and communication and fundraising strategy

Between late 2010 and early 2012, the communication and fundraising strategy of the Terre des hommes Foundation was completely overhauled. This transformation included a new identity and editorial line as well as the implementation of a new internal organization and a departmental balanced scorecard.

Developed together with the Zurich agency Spinas Civil Voices, the new graphic charter was deployed in the field within only a couple of weeks. Further, the door drop campaign was one of the most successful ones in Switzerland of all time. The sponsorship program was reviewed as well creating a new donor experience and underpinned with a new CRM. As a result, the department’s net income increased by 20% over 2 years.

Sandra Wirth was Director of Communication and Fundraising from 2010 to 2015. She was in charge of 30 staff and an income budget of CHF 28 million and member of the senior management team.

Launch and moderation of the Facebook group ICRC alumni network

Stratégie de communication, Strategos SA, Lausanne

Group of 5000 current and former employees of the International Committee of the Red Cross ICRC

Launched in 2017, this Facebook group has brought former ICRC staff closer to the ICRC. The group is most inclusive and includes a variety of professional profiles (directors, delegates, engineers, HR experts, accountants, drivers, guards) residing in more than 100 countries. 85% of its members are active every week.

In terms of procedures, applications requests are checked one by one based on a tailor-made questionnaire; publications are monitored on a daily basis. Still, any content of a private Facebook group always remains public and moderators need to facilitate accordingly.

In 2018, exchanges were cited in an article in Le Temps triggering some crisis management in which the moderator was involved. Learn more in a personal article on the genesis of the ICRC alumni association group.

Sandra Wirth is the main moderator and can now rely on self-regulation by the group.
