Must Have Fundraising Apps for Your Smart Phone
Whether you’re a social entrepreneur, in the business of federal grant writing, or you scurry around planning special events; there is most likely an app out there created to ease the way. Here are my top five as of October 2012:
1. Kickstarter 101
Kickstarter is a funding platform for creative projects, everything from films, games, and music to art, design, and technology. Kickstarter is full of ambitious, innovative, and imaginative projects that are brought to life through the direct support of others. Since its launch on April 28, 2009, over $350 million has been pledged by more than 2.5 million people, funding more than 30,000 creative projects, now that’s a kick-start!
Allows fundraisers to keep track of what they are raising in real-time, it alerts you each time a donation is made and you can easily share with your contacts. Furthermore, if you know who just gave, you can thank them in real time as well! Nifty.
Set up a social donation page in minute’s using Rally’s fundraising platform to share your story in a new way. Easily customize a cause donation page with your own design or use one of their templates. It rids you of the cost and burden of needing to create a merchant account for your nonprofit in order to accept donations.
Razoo enables you to manage your fundraisers and engage your donors. You can keep track of each donation, view your fundraising progress, ask people to give, and thank everyone who makes a donation. A one-stop iPhone fundraising app!
5. Fundraising Basics
This app is perfect for those just starting out in fundraising or those needing fresh ideas for the events they are coordinating. Full of tips and tricks, Fundraising Basics provides you with time saving methods and information to tackle the obstacles you may encounter. In this Android app you will find: 10 things your fundraising plan must include and how to put it together, 12 things your website must tell your visitors, and 6 common-sense but overlooked ways to find untapped pools of donors – among other advice.Pages:
