DaySpring Residential Treatment Centre provides a caring, safe and structured environment to help bring hope and healing to teenage girls who have suffered the trauma of abuse.
DaySpring first engaged with Conjunct in the beginning of 2014, at which time they became our nonprofit partner to engage in a semester- long consulting project.
DaySpring was facing funding constraints due to its expanded operations, increasing demand, and a decreasing pool of private donors, so they engaged Conjunct to help create a funding model that would enable them to run its treatment centre in a financially sustainable way. During the project, Conjunct’s volunteer team performed an internal needs analysis, benchmarked with other homes’ expenses and funding, and researched different funding sources before coming up with two targeted government grants and a corporate partnership strategy.
DaySpring then took their work with Conjunct one step further, and participated as the nonprofit partner at our pilot scalathon event at Deutsche Bank in May 2014. During this event, Deutsche Bank volunteered teams of employees who met to try to help DaySpring take their fundraising recommendations to the next level. During the event, the Deutsche Bank employees helped DaySpring to develop a pitch, provided sales tips, and presented recommendations for a 3-year phased approach in donor relationship building, as well as a plan to implement further awareness programmes, engage the community, and increase their donor base.
They were pleased with the results! They told us “Conjunct is thorough, professional, and client-centred. Conjunct has a structured process to do diagnosis, a team of student volunteers who are guided by professionals who become the mentors, and a good track record doing consultancy with the social sector. Conjunct provided a working model towards building sustainability of which DaySpring is thankful for the strategies and introductions!”
Conjunct is not the only ones pleased with DaySpring’s progress – President Tony Tan attended the opening of DaySpring’s brand new care facility just a few short months later, in recognition of DaySpring expanding their ability to serve even more endangered girls in Singapore.
