New Fundraising Technology Affordably Links E-mail and Social Media for Mobile Supporters of Small Non-Profits.
Tulsa, OK (July 26, 2011) - Give.mobi, innovator of fast, affordable, mobile web fund-raising solutions and the AHC Foundation today announced the launch of AHC Foundation's Give.mobi page: Give.mobi/AHCF
"We are doing a good job of connecting with supporters over social media and email but with so many supporters reading our messages on their mobile devices, we knew we were losing donations," says Jeff Wuchich, AHC Foundation President. "We were thrilled to discover an affordable mobile solution since we're run almost entirely by volunteers". The AHC Foundation assists children and adults with a disorder known as Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood, which is characterized by recurrent episodes of paralysis on alternating sides of the body.
"From a pure fundraising standpoint, email and social media channels are only effective when the recipient is able to respond immediately to call to action," explains Bob Jones, Give.mobi founder. "At best, your message is going to be read once. So if that message motivates recipients to donate, they must be able to do so simply and immediately, even if they're on a mobile device.”
"The adoption of web enabled smart phone technology is advancing at a pace unseen before in history. Nimble thinking nonprofits like the AHC Foundation can now extend their web based donor strategy from the part time world of the desk top, to the always on world of the hand held mobile device." explains Fred Emmer, Give.mobi Co-Founder.
"We're planning to use the new mobile portal to enhance all of our existing outreach efforts." says Wuchich. "Regardless of the message channel, mobile supporters can now donate and make pledges simply and quickly, and we're able to reach back and thank them since Give.mobi collects full donor identity information.”
"Gifts across all Give.mobi clients have thus far averaged out to $51 each, proving that mobile web givers will give more than $10 dollars when not limited by Text giving rules." added Emmer.
Persons interested in supporting the AHC Foundation may make a gift or pledge by visiting give.mobi/ahcf from their web enabled smart phones.
Give.mobi allows any IRS designated 501(c)(3) nonprofit to easily and affordably launch a universally accessible, branded mobile donation portal in minutes that provides donor identity information, real time results reporting and integrated social media sharing.
