BALTIMORE, MD; SARATOGA, CA (PRWEB) August 13, 2004
Doubleknot, Inc (http://www.doubleknot.com) a leading provider of hosted applications and services to non-profit organizations, announced today that First Candle/SIDS Alliance (FC/SA), a national non-profit health organization dedicated to advancing infant health and survival, is using Doubleknot to provide membership management and fund raising features for its newly released website. In the initial rollout, Doubleknot has been used for online membership applications, online donations and the membersÂ only section, which offers resource libraries and communities of interest among other features.
ÂAfter a careful review of the other solutions, First Candle chose Doubleknot because of its online feature set that incorporates the best practices needed to respond to the needs of our donors and other parties of interest. Because we encompass such a broad spectrum of activities, we needed a hosted service that could manage several aspects of our organization and meet our unique needsÂ, says Deborah M. Boyd, FC/SAÂs Executive Director. ÂDoubleknot was the only integrated application that met these needs while offering an attractive fee structure that others could not match. Its breadth of functionality is impressive and includes several online revenue generating vehicles, such as dues, donations, event registration and merchandise sales. In addition, as non-technologists we really like their toolset that allows our staff to easily manage the task of creating, reviewing and publishing fresh content to the siteÂ, concludes Boyd.
ÂDoubleknot is excited to be associated with First Candle/SIDS Alliance. We strive to deliver unprecedented value to our clients by providing technology and services that enhance their organizationÂs income producing potential and introduce operational efficienciesÂ, says Joe Garappolo, CEO of Doubleknot.
