Community Brands Adds MobileCause to Its Suite of Fundraising Tools

Partnership  Creates Powerhouse Solutions to Elevate Fundraising Programs and Results

Community Brands, the leading provider of cloud-based software and payment solutions for associations, nonprofits and schools, has recently acquired MobileCause, a premier comprehensive digital fundraising platform.

Paired with Community Brands’ GiveSmart solution, MobileCause will further support the fundraising strategies of midsize and large nonprofits that want to engage donors through a combination of mobile, virtual, hybrid, or in-person fundraisers with the continued support of advanced event fundraising tools, such as auctions and guest management. 

MobileCause makes fundraising fast and easy through intuitive tools such as online and mobile-ready donation forms, highly configurable campaign pages, text-to-donate, peer-to-peer and social fundraising, reporting, CRM integrations, and more. And, matched with expert one-on-one strategy, organizations can take the guesswork out of fundraising and quickly improve their results like never before.

Comments on the News

“Adding MobileCause into our dynamic portfolio will provide a new take on digital philanthropy and truly advance fundraising efforts for nonprofits and schools, regardless of their sophistication level,” said Bethany Little, managing director at Community Brands. “Forward-thinking organizations will benefit from the effortless fundraising tools that embrace modern communication channels — mobile, text, social, and streaming — while web and email are table stakes. I am also particularly thrilled to expand the reach of MobileCause campaign experts who worked with nonprofits during the pandemic with substantially increased year-over-year results!”

Little added, “Through the COVID-19 pandemic, we learned a lot about how to adapt and modernize our solutions to actually inspire more giving. Many of the shifts made over the last year will continue into the foreseeable future, especially as people engage in both the physical and virtual worlds. MobileCause is an ideal strategic partner to shepherd organizations into an exciting new approach to fundraising.”

What our clients say

We needed a platform to make sales online and to track and display ads for our sponsors. GiveSmart was perfect. We ended up making close to $15,000 more than we had hoped for. Definite better ROI than we anticipated. The interface is easy to use and provides plenty of options to get help if needed.

Using GS has created ease in auction bookkeeping, payments, and generating post-event thank you/tax letters. While we were online during COVID, our interactions with our GiveSmart via phone, email, and zoom were seamless. A representative always got back to us within the day. I would recommend GiveSmart to anyone doing a large online event.

GiveSmart is highly flexible - you can use it for [a] simple registration and check-in, to full-scale galas with complex order forms, onsite upsells, live auctions, seating management, and more.

GiveSmart is easy to use and ideal for virtual events and can be used for in-person events to manage the silent auction, seating charts, and check-in to the event. Being able to use the platform for unlimited events within the contract year is very useful and being able to add other users and volunteers for different levels of access is helpful as well.
