We understand the importance of selecting the right venue for successful and impactful donor acquisition. Our process is designed to simplify and enhance your donor acquisition operation and experience:

  • Initial Consultation

Begin with a consultation with our friendly and experienced team to understand your specific donor acquisition goals and preferences. We’ve worked with a number of charitable organisations and fundraisers to help them cut their donor acquisition costs by up to 30%.

  •   Personalised Venue Options

At VST Venues, our team carefully research and present suitable options to you tailored to your specific campaign, ensuring a strategic fit for attracting the right potential donors. The better targeted a campaign is, the less you leave to chance. 

  • Flexible Booking System

Choose the venues that align with your vision, allowing for seamless donor engagement, education, and successful acquisition.

Venue options for Donor Acquisition Campaigns

Discover the versatility of our venue options, strategically selected for effective donor acquisition.

Town Centres

High-footfall areas to maximise exposure and engagement but still have to be booked and administered professionally through the right channels. We can take care of this for you.  


When you go to a supermarket, you will often see a fundraiser standing in the foyer raising awareness for charity. Did you know that there’s a good chance we booked that fundraiser into the store? Our industry-leading retention rates (over 3 and a half years) mean our venue booking teams have built strong and trusted relationships with a number of nationwide supermarkets.

Shows and Events

Flower Shows, Christmas Markets, Exhibitions and Sports Events are all classed as events with a high concentration of footfall. All we need to do is understand the geographical area in which you want to work, the demographic of the donor you’re trying to attract and the charity you’re working for. Then we’ll present you with options and prices of a variety of shows and events to choose from. 

Transport Links

From train stations through to motorway service stations, we’ve helped a number of our customers secure sites for donor acquisition. Venues like this are often great due to the amount of ‘dwell time’ visitors often have. Meaning your field marketing and sales representatives have the time for meaningful conversations.   

Outdoor Spaces

Parks, gardens, and public squares offer a refreshing backdrop for meaningful interactions. The weather will need to be a consideration for outdoor locations for obvious reasons, given we can’t always rely on the British Weather…

Since 2012, we’ve worked with 100’s of fundraisers across some of the nation's leading charities. Introducing them to new venues and fundraising sites to engage with new potential donors. Our demographic-led targeting ensures that we put our fundraising clients in the right place, at the right time.

Louise HowsonManaging Director

The first step in finding the perfect venue or promotional space is to first understand the demographic of the donor or customer the organisation is looking to acquire. From here, we develop a bespoke proposal tailored exactly to their individual requirements.
