“What drew me to [GiveSmart] was the ease of use. We don’t have an IT department, so I needed a platform I could set up all on my own. After watching a few [training] videos I was able to create mobile giving pages and setup up text-do-donate. Other fundraising software platforms require too much technical expertise.” 

– Christine Bove, Director, Advancement & Alumnae Relations

Challenge

Solution

Saint Saviour High School, an all-girls Catholic High School in Brooklyn, New York, wanted to raise funds for their school's annual appeal and special funding for their science and athletic programs. The Saint Saviour staff was already using a fundraising software program but wanted one that was more affordable, easier to use, and with more advanced fundraising and engagement capabilities.

Being without an IT department, the Saint Saviour staff needed a fundraising platform that required little to no technical expertise. After watching [GiveSmart] videos and working with [the platform], they created sleek online giving pages for both of Saint Saviour's science and athletic programs. Peer-to-peer fundraising pages set up staff, alumni, and students with their own way of reaching their respective communities and sharing the excitement of their fundraising thermometer.

Impact

With [GiveSmart's] expert guidance, Saint Saviour surpassed expectations for the athletic and science programs and better connected with new and existing donors. Individual online giving pages allowed Saint Saviour to raise awareness for new initiatives to expand both programs. Peer-to-peer fundraising features helped them tap into a new donor base, specifically through social media. Saint Saviour also leveraged mobile messaging to communicate with parents of students by sending text message updates and reminders for holidays, casual dress days, field trips, snow days, and more.
