OneCause Celebrates Decade Supporting Fundraisers
Mobile fundraising leader reflects on ten years helping nonprofits raise $1.5 billion
July 26, 2018 — INDIANAPOLIS – OneCause, a leader in mobile fundraising, this week celebrated the tenth anniversary of its first fundraising event. Since July 2008, OneCause has supported more than 15,000 fundraising events, helping nonprofit organizations raise nearly $1.5 billion for their respective causes.
“The evolution of mobile technology and social fundraising over the last 10 years has greatly impacted the growth of our organization and solutions,” said Steve Johns, chief executive officer for OneCause. “Today more than 80 percent of Americans own a smartphone and there’s a new level of expectation for seamless, engaging giving experiences that is driving the way we develop our solutions.”
OneCause, formerly BidPal, was first to the market in 2008 with a mobile bidding solution to revolutionize how nonprofits raise funds at silent auction events. The organization has since evolved from a single-point solution centered around events to a year-round, integrated fundraising platform for nonprofits. OneCause most recently expanded into social fundraising this April with the acquisition of peer-to-peer fundraising platform, Great Feats.
“There’s a new generation of donors with unique giving behaviors that are driving nonprofits to think beyond the ballroom and find solutions to engage year-round,” said Johns. “We’re supporting more fundraising events than ever, up 38 percent over 2017, and helping nonprofits expand their reach and impact with multiple giving opportunities throughout the year, both in-person and online. We’ll continue to evolve our suite of mobile fundraising solutions as the needs of donors and fundraisers change.”
OneCause is committed to helping cause-driven organizations amplify their message and raise more funds with an easy-to-use, integrated fundraising suite.
OneCause creates user-friendly fundraising software that helps nonprofits engage donors, raise more money and save valuable time and resources. Our full suite of cloud-based fundraising solutions has helped more than 4,000 organizations connect with over 1.5 million unique supporters annually. Located in the marketing technology hub of Indianapolis, OneCause has been recognized on the Inc. 500 list of Fastest Growing Companies, received a Techpoint MIRA award for Mobile Technology Excellence & Innovation, and was awarded a Silver Stevie® Award in the Customer Service Department of the Year – Computer Software category.
