December 15, 2020 — INDIANAPOLIS – OneCause, a leader in online and event fundraising, has been named to Inc.’s inaugural Best in Business list with the Gold Award in the Business Services category. Inc. created the Best in Business Awards to honor privately held American businesses that demonstrated superlative impact on their communities, their industries, the environment, or society.
“We’re honored to be recognized for our efforts to make a positive difference in the world,” said Steve Johns, chief executive officer of OneCause. “As with many industries, 2020 will be marked as the beginning of a massive change in the way nonprofits use technology to connect with donors and raise money for their missions. The nonprofit community has been resilient, leaping into new digital experiences as they faced unprecedented challenges this year. We’re proud to have played a part in the innovation and advancements that led the global virtual fundraising pivot.”
When social distancing orders came at the height of the fundraising season, OneCause accelerated product innovation and operationalized new virtual fundraising services to help nonprofits continue funding their critical missions. In September, OneCause launched the Virtual Event Center creating a multimedia giving experience with live streamed and prerecorded content, combined with online fundraising functionality, to enable nonprofits to engage and inspire donors in a virtual world. Since March 13, OneCause has helped nonprofits across the U.S. and Canada go digital with its online, peer-to-peer, and event fundraising solutions, raising $355 million for their causes.
“It’s been an incredibly challenging year for companies,” said Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Across industries, businesses have had to make brutally tough decisions and face unprecedented uncertainty. That’s why we knew 2020 called for a new recognition program, something to complement our annual Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the country. For Best in Business, companies have prioritized tackling today’s problems to lead us to a better future, even if they’ve struggled to stay in the black.”
Honorees were selected among a competitive pool of 2,700 entries. Inc. editors reviewed the companies’ achievements over the past year and noted how they made a positive difference in the world.
