Boys & Girls Club of Salem Replaces Stand-Alone Fundraising Systems with DonorCommunity Cloud Computing Solution
Organization realizes 100% return on investment within one week of going live.
Sunrise, FL (PRWEB) August 21, 2012
DonorCommunity, Inc., developers of an innovative cloud computing software platform for fundraising and advocacy, announced today that the Boys & Girls Club of Salem has replaced their DonorPerfect software and 3rd party email marketing tool with DonorCommunity's fully-integrated suite of applications for fundraising, website content management, online marketing, social networking, personal fundraising, online donations and event management. Within one week of going live, the nonprofit realized a 100% return on its DonorCommunity investment by launching its first-ever personal fundraising campaign.
"The word of mouth about DonorCommunity from other Boys & Girls Clubs was overwhelmingly positive, but we were hesitant to consider a new fundraising infrastructure investment without a solid business case," said Michael Centor, Boys & Girls Club of Salem Executive Director. "We began by identifying opportunities for significant administrative cost reductions via DonorCommunity's free hosting service and the improved efficiencies afforded by its event management, Website content management and online donation applications. But the real win for us was the prospect of adding online campaigns to our fundraising mix. Within a week of going live, we generated over $15,000 through our first-ever personal fundraising campaign to raise money for a new gym floor. These incredible results speak for themselves. DonorCommunity is a 'must-have' solution for online fundraising and advocacy."
"Like other clubs, the Boys & Girls Club of Salem was contending with a collection of stand-alone applications that imposed unacceptable restrictions on its ability to raise funds and serve constituents," said David Blyer, DonorCommunity founder and CEO. "Today, all of its information about program participants, volunteers, donors and stakeholders is consolidated and instantly available for personalized communications, event planning and online campaigns. We look forward to providing these same benefits to Boys & Girls Clubs worldwide."
