”Dancing with the Stars” themed events have become a popular fundraiser for nonprofits. A Domestic Violence Shelter, was holding a similar event as an annual fundraiser. While teams wanted to win the coveted Best Dancer award, they were also motivated to be the team that raised the most money for the shelter. Once they began using personalized campaign pages in CIVICRM for their dancers to raise money, the amount raised more than doubled.
A Boys and Girls Club wanted to allow their parents to pay online for their after school program and summer camps. The organization converted all of their payment processes from a paper process that required them to constantly take checks to the bank to an automated online payment process using CiviCRM. This process improvement allowed them to save staff time and automate the payment feature.
Every year a pharmaceutical company would lend their employee to the United Way for two months to help with campaign season. When this woman tragically died they wanted to raise money in her memory. The United Way (with our help) created a CiviCRM contribution widget – which was then placed on the Pharmaceuticals intranet page to provide donations in memory of the deceased. Within a month over 200 employees donated over $10,000 online via the widget to this United Way.
Several of our United Way customers have converted their annual Workplace Campaigns from a challenging 'paper' process to a fully digital online process through CiviCRM. This has streamlined the process for company employees to donate easily and quickly to their local United Way and increased giving substantially while decreasing expenses to implement the program.
