Volusion, a leading provider of all-in-one ecommerce solutions, is empowering non-profit organizations to tap into the Web to raise money through online sales and donations. Every month, through its Stores to Change the World program, Volusion provides a free Gold store subscription to its award-winning ecommerce solution for up to 10 qualifying non-profits. The solution provides organizations with everything they need to build an online store, reach a national audience, increase awareness and raise funds to support their mission. Since the inception of the program, Volusion has provided free accounts to more than 80 non-profit organizations.
"Through Stores to Change the World, we are providing non-profits with the same ecommerce platform and unmatched customer experience that we do for leading corporations like Ed Hardy, Balsam Hill and Motorola," said Kevin Sproles, CEO of Volusion.

We are glad to know that our ecommerce technology can help non-profit organizations succeed at selling online."
