Part of my job is to educate our fundraisers and give them tools, so they feel comfortable fundraising on our behalf both online and offline. For as long as I can remember, we’ve been using Qgiv. It’s a very simple system to understand and I can jump on and build a form or a page whenever I need it. Everything works for us: the thermometer, the integration with Facebook, and the integration with Bloomerang.
We get exactly what we need out of the system. In 2020, we raised $180,000 through a combination of fundraising events when we were forced to combine two events into one virtual event branded as ‘Yappy Hour’ and host a virtual ‘Heart & Sole Walk for Animals’. Qgiv’s auction and peer-to-peer fundraising platforms worked well for helping us achieve our goals.
