Family Services Ottawa (FSO) is looking to engage a consultant to develop a Family Day fundraising campaign, including the development of the strategy, creative and communications, media plan possibly, execution and measurement and reporting.

For over 100 years, Family Services Ottawa has offered counselling and support services to families, parents, and children. Whether it’s relationship issues, coping with stress and anxiety, or adjusting to a divorce or separation, we have programs to help. By helping individuals and families grow stronger, we are helping our community to do the same.

Our next steps in building the FSO brand, increasing community engagement and growing fundraising revenues is to undertake a campaign around Family Day. Family Day, celebrated the third Monday of February, is another reminder of the importance of families and our goal is to align with this provincial holiday to encourage engagement and donations. FSO launched a trial Family Day campaign in 2022, which resulted in low donations but strong website click-throughs. We wish to build on that by increasing both engagement and donations with an overall campaign strategy and communications/media plan that can be re-used for the next three to five years with minor modifications.
