INDIANAPOLIS, July 11, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The number of mobile bidding fundraisers powered by BidPal rose 27 percent through the 2017 Spring fundraising season compared to a year ago, and total proceeds raised by nonprofits increased 22 percent to $162 million. BidPal, the leading mobile fundraising platform helping nonprofits raise more money, also announced that they powered 464 net new events during the period, an increase of 30 percent.
Growth was driven by do-it-yourself fundraisers (“DIY”), which increased by 76 percent. Full service fundraisers made up the majority of BidPal’s events and rose 10 percent during the period. Online fundraisers were up 16 percent and Text2Give campaigns rose 31 percent.
“Fundraisers don’t end with the event. This is why BidPal continues to be the technology of choice for nonprofits looking for a full-featured, easy-to-use solution that allows year-round online fundraising,” said BidPal CEO Steve Johns.
BidPal develops software that helps nonprofits manage their fundraising campaigns throughout the year, including events and auctions; online giving; online stores; Text2Give; and soon to include walk, run and ride campaigns. BidPal’s robust reports provide the insight needed by nonprofits to work more efficiently and improve fundraising efforts.
This year, BidPal expanded BidPal Connect™, an app available on the Salesforce AppExchange, to include integration of individual donor activity—such as ticket and auction item purchases, donations and raffle participation. This detailed information gives nonprofits better insight into donor engagement.
“BidPal is leading the way building the best mobile software, integrated payments and tech-enabled solutions for the nonprofit market. Stay tuned. We will be rolling out some exciting new features in the coming months,” said Johns.
