ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sionic Mobile, a mobile commerce leader, today announced the availability of its free Shop2Give app, helping non-profit organizations meet or exceed their fundraising goals with a simple, mobile experience. The first-of-its-kind app was designed for non-profits to stay engaged with supporters as they shop or dine at their favorite places and increase donations at no extra cost.

Atlanta-based Enduring Hearts is one of the early adopters of the Shop2Give mobile donations tool. “By enabling mobile donations, the Shop2Give app will be instrumental in our fundraising efforts and in growing our supporter base,” said Patrick Gahan, president of Enduring Hearts. “Giving supporters the ability to donate directly from their mobile phone, and support our cause while making everyday purchases increases our ability to fund future research. Equally as important, being able to customize the app with the Enduring Hearts brand and generate campaigns that are specific to our needs not only deepens relationships with existing donors, but it also attracts the next generation of supporters.”
With the Shop2Give app, supporters can conveniently and securely use their smartphone to make purchases at more than 50,000 retail locations, or online at no extra charge to the consumer or the non-profit, and the non-profit automatically receives two percent of every checkout. Additionally, supporters can donate any amount at any time directly from their mobile device.
“Lack of resources, time and funding are the most common barriers preventing the majority of non-profits from leveraging the mobile channel to increase fundraising and engage supporters,” said Ronald Herman, CEO and founder of Sionic Mobile. “Shop2Give eliminates these obstacles, providing organizations immediate access to a mobile app including mobile payments and one-tap donations, as well as the ability to customize the user experience to align with the non-profit’s brand and mission.”
Using the new Shop2Give app, non-profit organizations can offer supporters simple and convenient ways to give, resulting in more dynamic campaigns and a much richer end-user experience. Shop2Give is currently available for download on iOS devices from the App Store, with an Android version coming soon.
