Mobile has put a whole new spin on
fundraising, connecting with donors, and kick-off campaigns. As part of
the App It Up 2:
Transforming Communities project, we had
the opportunity to explore some of the latest mobile fundraising apps.
We looked at mobile tools for fundraising as
well as apps that incorporate some sort of fundraising into their platform.
Transforming Communities is a
Microsoft-funded initiative that builds on what TechSoup and Microsoft already
learned through the first App It Up project.
These mobile tools help you fundraise on-the-go.
From gaming to storytelling, these apps make supporting a
cause entertaining and interactive.
Looking to reach donors by way of their smartphones? You
don't necessarily need an app to do that! An easy solution is to optimize your
online donation page for smartphone browsers. Watch a replay of a webinar from TechSoup
Canada to learn how to make your donation page accessible to mobile phones.
via text message is one of the easiest ways to raise money for your
organization. The Mobile Giving Foundation is a great place to start find
resources to start your mobile campaign.
If you have a great idea
for a fundraising app, but don't know where to start, you might be able to find
help from NetSquared, an initiative from TechSoup Global.
NetSquared brings nonprofits
together with programmers, designers and other business professionals. Simply
join NetSquared, post your idea in the project gallery, and see what sort of
