When he embarked on his journey through the nonprofit sector nearly two decades ago, Felipe Antunes cut his teeth through volunteer work. This long and winding road would take him through various roles, enriching his experience in the sector. Over time, his passion for the cause would eventually transition into a professional career spanning 13 years. Today, he is one of the key figures steering the ship of Doare, an organization that has woven itself firmly into the fabric of the nonprofit sector.
Antunes, through Doare, has been part of numerous campaigns, but one stands out quite prominently. It was an endeavor that saw the organization partner with another nonprofit to conduct a fundraising drive. The campaign was overwhelmingly successful, attracting over 100,000 donors who helped raise a staggering £74 million. This achievement marked a notable high point in the history of Doare and firmly established it as a force within the sector.
It wasn’t just Doare’s credibility that got a tremendous boost from this campaign. Antunes sees it as evidence of the power of collective action and the willingness of individuals to contribute to causes they believe in. Beyond the success of the fundraising campaign, it’s the expression of human solidarity that truly touched Antunes.
Felipe takes pride in the organization’s impact and the unique tools they use to facilitate success. One such tool is the ‘Sistema Embaixador.’ This tool, designed with a focus on peer-to-peer (P2P) fundraising, has played a pivotal role in fostering connections between individuals and the causes they care about.
Underlying Doare’s success, and inextricably linked with it, is a culture of innovation. Acknowledging the importance of staying ahead of the curve, Antunes commends the value of this tool, which has sped up numerous impactful campaigns, facilitating efficiency and effectiveness.
Doare, under Antunes’s leadership, has always aimed to empower individuals and communities to lend their support. The ‘Sistema Embaixador’ tool epitomizes this ethos by fostering connections between donors and causes, amplifying the social impact of collective giving, and demonstrating the necessity of innovation in the nonprofit sector.
Antunes’s journey from a volunteer to leading a key player in the non-profit sector is a testament to the power of dedication and experience. His role in raising £74 million in a single campaign punctuates Doare’s impressive impact and success in the sector.
Indeed, it’s individuals like Felipe that underscore the importance of the nonprofit sector’s work. With Doare, he has not only been able to facilitate notable campaigns with their innovative tools but has also impressed countless people with the value of giving.
The modesty of Antunes and his steerage of Doare have guided the organization into becoming more impactful and remarkable in its success. His commitment to the cause, together with a strong team, is indeed an inspirational saga in the realm of the nonprofit sector.
As Felipe Antunes continues to lead Doare, blazing a trail in the nonprofit sector, he remains invigorated and focused on the task at hand.
