Charity preference poll
A few months ago, we launched a Charity Preference Poll and asked online
members to tell us which categories of charities you prefer.
According to the results of the survey, the top three charities that
ConsultaPanel community members would want to support are: 1. Animal shelters 2.
Children’s charities 3. Disability charities

Why we did this
As you are aware, ConsultaPanel incentivises you for your participation in
online research surveys. While some members have indicated they
prefer vouchers for their favourite online shops, others say they would rather
use their incentives to support charities.
We love getting this type of feedback from you guys, so we decided to give
you the option of donating your online panel incentives from
one of our surveys to charity. The charity we chose for the specific survey was
the “Own the Night Challenge”, an initiative launched by the South African
National Parks Honorary Rangers (supported by LeadSA and widely promoted by
Radio702) to combat rhino poaching in South Africa.
Night” was a raffle competition that raised R2-million to equip the Kruger
National Park rangers with specialised equipment to zone in on sophisticated
poaching syndicates. Our generous panel community members donated enough of
their incentives to enable us to buy three raffle tickets (priced at R1000 each)
for this charitable competition held last year.
ConsultaPanel is considering incorporating charity donations into our awards
policy options in the future. Now that we know what type of charities you would
like to donate to, we will do our best to find appropriate institutions that are
in need of funds and donations.
*The final decision on the specific
organisation(s) lies with ConsultaPanel.
