San Antonio Christian Dental Clinic (SACDC) is a nonprofit organization that provides free, routine dental care to homeless, uninsured, or underinsured Bexar County adults.
First Presbyterian Church of San Antonio established SACDC in 1986 as an outreach mission of the church. In 2012, the organization grew from the basement of First Baptist church downtown to a full-size, state-of-the-art dental facility on the Haven for Hope campus.
With a beautiful new space and the ability to care for more than twice as many patients, San Antonio Christian Dental Clinic asked Burnam | Gray to help increase their digital presence and help them to educate the community on the importance of their mission.
With a long-term partnership, our team gets to know every aspect of the organization. We have become part of the SACDC family. We have worked on a variety of efforts with SACDC as their needs grow and change over time.
Early on, we helped the organization develop a process for receiving online donations. We then created and launched an online process for screening client applicants – rather than a manual process. We established all of their social media accounts. And, in the journey, we helped grow their web traffic by over 1,000 percent.
Through the efforts of a stronger online presence, San Antonio Christian Dental Clinic has been able to communicate its services to their donors and the greater community. Their brand awareness has increased, and together, we have streamlined many operational processes along the way.
In this recent phase of our partnership, we are focused on fund development strategies for re-engaging indivdual donors and building a culture of philanthropy within the organization. Our team has supported San Antonio Christian Dental Clinic through their annual fundraising appeals — from creative ideation all the way to the mailing of their appeal — and strategies for thanking their donors. We have helped with creative, personal donor engagement and fundraising events, in addition to supporting their Big Give efforts the last few years.
Our work with San Antonio Christian Dental Clinic has changed and adapted to the needs of the organization, and it is a pleasure to engage in a long-term relationship with a nonprofit where we can see and measure effectiveness and impact.
