iGive & Bat World: A Second Chance for Injured Bats

“When Bat World Sanctuary signed up for iGive we were delighted that so many stores were available, even the printing company we use to create our newsletter is on the iGive list! We have taken advantage of iGive’s handy templates to send to our supporters as well as the automatic weekly post to Facebook. Our iGive donations have significantly increased over the years due to the applications iGive provides.  Thank you, thank you, thank you iGive, for helping us save the lives of injured and orphaned bats through your compassionate program!” From Amanda Loller of Bat World...

School-Related Expenses Turn Into Cash for a Cause

School-Related Expenses Turn Into Cash for a Cause

May 15, 2014

In less than a year of existence, the C Three Foundation, an advocate for The Sinclair Method as a means of combating alcoholism, has found an early line of support in iGive. While waiting on a pending 501C3 designation, the C Three Foundation was able to rely on iGive’s policy of offering an outlet for direct cause donations, regardless of 501C3 status. During this early period, full-time student Jenny Williamson was able to get the most out of iGive by making school-related textbook, supply, and shipping purchases through affiliated iGive retailers. School-related expenses can be incredibly costly, but when a portion of those costs can be put to a good cause, it certainly helps.

iGive Webinar – Dormant Shoppers and the PartyApp

iGive CEO Rob Grosshandler delivered an informative presentation to causes registered with iGive. Please feel free to view the presentation video below, or download a PDF of the presentation. (Right click and select “Save As”) iGive’s goal for causes is to help you generate more money – unrestricted dollars that are available by using iGive’s technology and tools. We discussed two strategies on Friday, May 9, 2014 that can help you capture more donations from your supporters: Activating dormant supporters Your cause makes money through iGive when your supporters shop normally online using the iGive button. But sometimes, a supporter who was generating donations for your cause through iGive is no longer using the tool, or perhaps needs to be reminded about the impact he or she can make. We’ll discuss some strategies for encouraging dormant supporters – online shoppers who are no longer using iGive to your benefit – to start shopping with iGive again. PartyApp The PartyApp is a great way to recruit supporters to get the iGive button. A perfect complement to your events or board meetings, the PartyApp is a simple tool that gets your supporters signed up with iGive right away. And the more supporters you have using iGive, the more money your cause can generate. ———————————————————————————————— 350,000 socially conscious people choosing to shop at over 1200 socially-responsible stores in order to help their favorite causes and charities!
