OneCause is committed to helping cause-driven organizations amplify their message and raise more funds with easy-to-use fundraising solutions. First to market as BidPal in 2007 with revolutionary mobile bidding, our full suite of solutions now powers online giving, event management, mobile bidding, and peer-to-peer fundraising for nonprofit organizations of all sizes.
A decade ago we set out to revolutionize charitable fundraising. Our founders themselves were gala attendees who thought there had to be an easier way to give. From there an idea and company was created to serve one need: help nonprofits raise more and reach more through technology.
We are driven to continue improving the giving experience. Donors are looking for a connection; and our technology empowers organizations to put their mission at the forefront and make giving mobile, social and fun.
OneCause is committed to driving innovation in the nonprofit sector. We’re data-driven, producing donor research and industry benchmark reports to help nonprofits improve their fundraising strategy and guide our software development.
We bring together the most innovative fundraising experts at our annual Raise Conference and recognize individual fundraisers and organizations who are shaping the future of fundraising with our Raise Awards.
OneCause took our fundraising from walking to running to flying.
