Harris interactive has a strong research heritage, partnering with both, charitable and not-for-profit organisations across a variety of challenges facing both global and domestic organisations.   In partnership with many charitable organisations, we gather insights to direct strategy and support funding bids. This includes addressing supporter behaviour, particularly amongst lapsed donors.

Cementing our experience in charitable sector research, Harris Interactive, together with Third Sector Magazine, has run the Charity Brand Index in the UK for the past 5 years.  Harris Interactive has developed the Index as a single measurement which ranks charities in a comprehensive way.  Results are published every year and the Index is now used by the majority of charitable organisations in the UK as a measure of their strengths and success.

Utilising both traditional and innovative cutting edge technologies we have provided research solutions in the areas of:
  • Brand Strategy
  • Brand Development & Positioning
  • Communication Strategy & Campaign Development
  • Attitudes & Awareness
  • Stakeholder Engagement
  • Membership Strategy & Support
  • Donor Satisfaction & Loyalty
  • Opinion Research
