INDIANAPOLIS, April 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — SimpliGiv LLC today announced the availability and early adoption of its low-cost service that allows businesses to donate items to nonprofits with ease, and a free service for nonprofits to boost their auction fundraising.
Anyone who has been involved in donating or gathering item donations for fundraising, whether with a business or nonprofit, knows that it can be complicated, lengthy, and a significant drain on resources. Repeated calls, emails, and all the other back and forth between parties add to the difficulty and do nothing to advance giving or to achieve fundraising goals.
A donating business simply registers on the site, lists the items they wish to make available, enters criteria for nonprofit qualification and selection, and then selects a best-match nonprofit fundraising event for the donation.
SimpliGiv handles all the details, including essential communications between parties, and dynamic reporting for accounting, tax, and general management purposes.
“I am excited to see this technology launch. We anticipate this will help our business streamline our giving process so we can continue to support organizations without taking my team out of production, and to track everything in real time,” said Jimmy Myers of Indianapolis Coca-Cola.
“Why wouldn’t we do this?! SimpliGiv will save us time, so we can give more to those organizations that fit our mission,” remarked Jeff Person of national retailer Lids, Inc.
SimpliGiv is not just for large companies and nonprofits. Any organization that wants to donate items to nonprofits of any size can take advantage of the service. Ease of use, low cost, and clear benefits are creating excitement in businesses of all sizes.
Jason Harris of MaxLife Chiropractic said, “I am looking forward to utilizing the SimpliGiv software. As a small business owner, this will allow me to better organize my giving so I can support all of the causes that are close to myself and my team.”
“I am looking forward to having another tool to use to secure auction items. Even if we receive one or two items it’s a huge help,” said Beth Gehlhausen of Meals on Wheels of Hamilton County.
The service allows businesses to register with a free 30-Day Trial, followed by a low monthly commitment.
For registered nonprofits, SimpliGiv allows free use. Listing and publicizing donation needs for fundraising events such as auctions—including all the characteristics of the event: timing, item criteria, and other details—will make sure donations are well-suited to the audience and available on time.
Nonprofits will enjoy more and better quality donations as a result.
Jill Bennett of Indiana Chapter of ALS said, “In previous years, our volunteers and board members spent most of their time soliciting auction items. We are excited to use a new technology where we can save time for other needs.”
The service was built to be easily accessible, intuitive, and comprehensive, from registration through the successful delivery of donated items.
“We built SimpliGiv to provide businesses a big advantage in managing item donations to nonprofits, and to give the nonprofit fundraising world a powerful new way to improve their results. For too long, the whole process has consumed too much time and effort on both sides,” said Steve Rosen, Founder and President of SimpliGiv.
SimpliGiv is available now for any organization looking to make giving or receiving item donations easier, more efficient, and more rewarding.
