CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--On the day before #GivingTuesday, one of the most popular fundraising days of the year, GiveCentral announced it has launched a completely revamped website designed to break down the barriers that exist between nonprofits and donors. Leveraging feedback from clients and donors, along with the latest technology, GiveCentral’s recently launched website empowers donors and nonprofits to give and collect charitable donations in innovative new ways.
“Technology’s role in giving has expanded greatly over the past several years and GiveCentral continues to evolve its services every step of the way,” said Patrick Coleman, CEO of GiveCentral. “We are very excited about the latest changes to our site, as they make our services more personalized, offer improved functionality and allow for more customized communication. We hope these updates will let donors give in the way that is most convenient for them, and for their donations to create an opportunity for transparency and connectedness.”
GiveCentral’s new website features include:
- Mobile Responsive Design –In an increasingly mobile world, smartphones, tablets and other devices are where users want opportunities to donate. GiveCentral’s new site is completely mobile responsive so donors and nonprofits can easily access their accounts no matter where they are, just as if they were visiting the GiveCentral website on a desktop or laptop.
- Online Profiles – Nonprofits with GiveCentral accounts can now create completely customizable online profile pages to manage all the information about the organization – from the latest giving opportunities, to social media activity, to photos and videos. While previous versions of the site required more of a list format for events, this new feature provides all the information that donors need in one simple location.
- No Expiration Dates – With GiveCentral’s new website, donors don’t have to set an expiration date on a recurring donation to a nonprofit of their choice. In the past, end dates were required and could cause challenges when users wanted to continue giving. This is a very useful feature for nonprofits as well, as on average recurring donors give 42 percent more per year than one-time donors.
- New Pledging Management Tool – Designed to make the process simpler than ever, GiveCentral’s new pledging tool manages irregularities in giving so that donor information isn’t lost and consistency is ensured.
“With #GivingTuesday and the busy holiday giving season in full swing, we’re confident that these latest changes to our tools will continue to serve our clients and donors in the best ways possible,” added Coleman.
