Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) April 5, 2007
Funding Labs, LLC, providers of online fundraising systems, announced today the release of http://www.FundingPix.com, a new interactive fundraising system for individuals, organizations, and not-for-profits. FundingPix.com enables anyone to set up online fundraising events which showcase their donors as they reveal a picture.
"People are frustrated with fundraising methods. They want to give directly to the cause. A basic online donate button can get money directly to the fundraiser but it ends abruptly with no follow-through. FundingPix is the missing link that engages donors and recognizes them for their contributions. Donors can see and feel that they've made a difference by becoming an active part of a fundraising event. FundingPix events are easy, they're interactive, and they're fun. It's like having a donate button on steroids," said Dale Hughes, FundingPix co-developer and CEO/CTO of Funding Labs.
The fundraiser creates an event using a picture of their choice. Each time someone donates, another section of their picture is revealed. Donors optionally write something about themselves or read about others. When the whole image is revealed - the fundraising event will have met its goal. Visitors click on the revealed picture sections to see what donors have written.
Financial transactions, emails, receipts, and an opt-in database are automated for each fundraising event. Fundraisers customize their events for large campaigns or create simple tip jars. The events are secure and can be placed on any existing website.
- 100% of donations go directly to the fundraiser's PayPal account.
- FundingPix does not take a percentage of the funds raised.
- Events raising $500 or less are hosted for free.
- Events raising over $500 incure a minimal hosting fee based on time and database size.
- For example, a 60 day event which allows 300 donors would cost $46. The hosting fee is the same whether the event is raising $3,000 or $300,000.
