"Our walks have experienced dramatic growth since we've been using DonorDrive."
Cincinnati, Ohio (PRWEB) May 30, 2013
Since the launch of DonorDrive Social Fundraising by Global Cloud, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention has used the innovative software to grow their mission online. Mike Lamma, Senior Director for Development and Field Management at AFSP: "Our walks have experienced dramatic growth since we've been using DonorDrive. This coming year will mark eight years that we've been with Global Cloud." During that time both the number of walks and donations received have increased substantially. "Eight years ago we had 74 community walks. We had 275 last year and this fall we expect to have over 300 on DonorDrive." In addition, AFSP now has 65 campus walks at universities across the U.S. that are fundraising through DonorDrive.
Mike sees results that show DonorDrive is making fundraising through social sharing easy. "Supporters register online, import their address book, email their friends and ask that they support them. They can upload a picture of their loved, craft a personalized message and promote it virally. It's a very effective fundraising tool for us."
Todd Levy is co-founder of Global Cloud and the guiding force behind DonorDrive Social Fundraising software. "We're delighted to continue to grow this relationship with AFSP. Mike was one of our first clients to use DonorDrive. Over the years he and his staff have provided insight that's helped fuel the innovations that have made DonorDrive the most effective fundraising software available today."
Mike sees DonorDrive as the ideal tool to take AFSP's fundraising into the future. "This spring we’re piloting a new cycling event called Tour For Hope and we're using DonorDrive for that. Next year we'll roll that out to ten sites. We've recently launched a Personal Campaigns program too." Personal Campaigns let supporters create their own fundraising campaigns with all proceeds going to AFSP. "A lot of people want to set up a memorial fund to honor a loved one. We're also using DonorDrive for our chapters to manage and fundraise for their local events as well. We're using DonorDrive across the board for fundraising."
