Executive Director

Lansing Area AIDS Network

“The Lansing Area AIDS Network (LAAN) holds its annual AIDS Walk Lansing/East Lansing event each year in September. For many years the event was part of a larger series of AIDS Walk events throughout the State of Michigan that fell under the banner of AIDS Walk Michigan with Kintera providing the website and support. When AIDS Walk Michigan was disbanded, LAAN and several other cities decided that they would continue with separate walks. LAAN was looking for an option that would be both user friendly and less expensive to operate. Qgiv’s peer-to-peer fundraising platform provided that solution.

LAAN has been very satisfied with the relative ease of set up and site maintenance, the ability to create a very unique and event specific website, readily secure various reports, and the support that is consistently provided as needed. It has been easy for staff to use and has been reported as very user-friendly by donors. An additional bonus which LAAN has considered, but not acted on, is the ability to create another fundraising event during the same contract year. I would highly recommend that Qgiv be considered by any agency looking for an event website that should prove cost effective, efficient to administer, and easy to use.”
