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. Now six months later, despite the C Three Foundation’s small size, Jenny is “blown away” that the cause possesses 25 iGive members and over $200 in donations. At this stage, certainly every little bit helps, and iGive has gone a long way for the C Three...

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!

Finding Your ‘Super Shopper’

Finding Your ‘Super Shopper’

Apr 2, 2014

Meet the ‘super shopper’ Using iGive, shoppers donate a percentage of their online purchases to a cause of their choice by shopping through iGive’s 1400-plus affiliated retailers. Even a small percentage of each purchase can amount to significant funding for a cause when a shopper is spending thousands of dollars online each week. One Million Moms Against Gun Control (1MMAGC) is a grassroots initiative that has only existed for a couple of years. While the number of their supporters continues to grow, they are only now beginning to adopt iGive. But that didn’t stop them from earning over $900 in three months through iGive. Big Purchases, Big Returns Where does Heather Marchese, the Executive Director of 1MMAGC attribute the much appreciated, additional funding? “It’s a single member who makes her business purchases through iGive,” she stated. By downloading the iGive button and making a frequent number of large purchases through the 1,400+ online retailers that make up iGive’s retail network, a single individual was able to generate over $900 in three months for 1MMAGC. There were no extra steps involved in making a purchase or any additional fees, just an individual doing business as usual and earning money all the while for a cause she believes in. It’s that easy. So who is your super shopper? Getting more of your supporters to adopt iGive is a surefire way to help out your cause. Have enough of your supporters add the iGive button and who knows, maybe one of them will be your super...

April $5 Challenge

April $5 Challenge – 1,000 New iGive Members a Day Means $5 Donations for iGive Causes Spring is finally here. To celebrate, we’ll donate $5 per new member supporting iGive Causes in the month of April.  No purchase necessary.  In other words, for free. Here’s the challenge.  iGive must get at least 1,000 new members a day (supporting any cause, it doesn’t need to be yours) in April. They need to try the free and optionaliGive Button through 7/15/14. In our best months, we’ll get 1,000 to 1,500 people joining each day.  What we’re hoping is that you’ll tell all of your friends, even those friends who might support causes or charities different from your favorite. That’ll make April a Best Month. Why share with your friends? – When they shop, they’ll help Old South Church in Boston or their own favorite cause.  Why not let them take advantage of over 1,400 stores that want to help? The average shopper is raising over $30 – $100 a year for their cause … all for free. It’s simple and automatic.. Five bucks free, just for trying us out. The more iGive members, the better the deals we can get from stores. Spread your iGive link everywhere (Facebook’s a great way, but Twitter, e-mail, blogs, bulletin boards, and handouts all work).
