Become a social impact investor for as little as $50.
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.
Receiving donations 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.
