OneCause May 2018 Newsletter

The month of May in our corporate hometown means Indy 500 and speed. We are seeing fundraising set a blistering pace too. $232MM total proceeds raised YTD – that’s up 44% over last year.

The results are inspiring! Each dollar raised can be invested in communities, fund new programs, create cures and educate tomorrow.

Your work powers possibilities. As your partner, we will continue to push forward with you, developing new tools to create wider impact.

Check out the Top 10 Product Enhancements (webcast below). All part of the OneCause roadmap to bring more innovation to market in 2018!
