Opoku-Mensah: Fundraising platform for National Cathedral under review

The review when completed will incorporate a donor management system and a call centre to follow up with donor related issues

Paul Opoku-Mensah, the executive director of the National Cathedral of Ghana, has said the fundraising platform for the Cathedral is under review to make it more user-friendly.

The National Cathedral when completed, will provide an interdenominational space for worship and other activities. The project has currently stalled due to funding challenges.

Speaking with Benjamin Offei-Addo on Town Hall Town on Asaase 99.5 Friday (16 September), “We have actually stalled the work to say let’s begin to rethink the fundraising because the fundraising was located within a voluntary framework. So what we have done is to provide a dedicated personal infrastructure.”

“So we have brought in a professional fund-raiser, and then we are saying that we also needed to develop a robust technology platform for our fundraising … our model must be built on mass mobilisation and what we are advocating for is a million people giving us GHC100,” he said.

He added, “But also intergrade a donor management system,…the platform we had was just for contribution, but there was no way of engaging you, so we have now engaged a local technology firm, which is now developing that robust platform.”

The review when completed will incorporate a donor management system and a call centre to follow up with donor-related issues.

“We are also setting up a call centre, which then will be used to call to acknowledge people to remind them because that has been missing,” he said.
