San Francisco, CA, March 29, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Give by Cell, a San Francisco based company specializing in mobile technology solutions, announces the launch of their newest mobile fundraising platform, Mobile Donate, which allows donors to donate any dollar amount by texting in a key word or scanning a QR code to receive a link to a mobile donation web based page. Funds are deposited directly into an organization’s merchant account.
“Give by Cell remains a leader in providing creative solutions to non-profit organizations,” said David Asheim, President and Founder of Give by Cell. “Our work with over 2,000 charitable organizations allows us to develop cutting-edge services and anticipate and react to market needs. Mobile Donate serves as a perfect event-driven mobile fundraising solution. Also it is effective for charities that do not meet eligibility requirements of previous text to give platforms and does not have donation limits.”
In addition to not having eligibility requirements and donation limits, Mobile Donate also does not require supporters to download an app first or create an account to donate. "Consumers are inundated with third-party apps and services lately. While Mobile Donate is a terrific add-on to the many new smartphone-based ecommerce tools available, including Square, Google Wallet and PayPal, our solution does not overwhelm donors. We also offer solutions that do not require donors to have a smartphone," commented Mr. Asheim.
Give by Cell works closely with organizations to customize the mobile fundraising technology to best meet client needs. Additional services available include webcasting, multiple campaign keywords, text alerts, audio information hotlines, custom landing screens, and web widgets. Give by Cell is also developing reoccurring donation options and donor “Remember Me” options on mobile donation web based pages.
“Mobile Donate changed our fundraising efforts exponentially and increased donor support,” said Lisa Vos of University of the Nations, Financial Services. “Donors really appreciated the convenience and immediacy of giving by text, and using the live webcasting in conjunction created such an exciting environment. It was a great feeling watching the crowd cheer and encourage further support as they saw the donation numbers grow.”
Give by Cell also offers two additional mobile fundraising platforms, Mobile Give and Mobile Pledge, both of which can be used in conjunction with Mobile Donate. For more information, please visit www.givebycell.com.
