(PRWEB) January 13, 2015
MyEvent.com, the one-stop-shop for events and online fundraising, is excited to announce that GE has raised more than $290,000 for GE Crotonville programs with GEGIVES.com, a fundraising site powered by MyEvent.com.
GE Crotonville is GE’s Leadership Development center and philanthropy is a core objective of their Executive development programs. GE Gives: Crotonville in Action is a secured site designed to collect donations, assign those donations to a not-for-profit organization, and archive the on-the-ground impact made by GE Crotonville sponsored initiatives. This site was built in partnership with the GE Foundation and offers a matching funds program to GE employees for organizations that qualify.
In this initiative, the main participants are GE Senior Executives. With GEGives.com the executive's personal and team fundraising pages facilitate donations and make it easy for them to share a personalized link to their fundraising page with their networks, reducing time and costs associated with other old fundraising strategies.
GE and MyEvent.com have worked together since 2012, when the GEGives.com website was created and helped GE to raise more than $100,000 in its first year. The company continues to leverage MyEvent because online fundraising is the best option to raise money for their beneficiaries. Myevent.com online fundraising tools allow them to collect money from personal and team fundraising pages for all of their partners in one place. MyEvent.com is in a unique position because it provides an online fundraising platform and is also a payment facilitator so there is no need for a 3rd party payment processor.
GE manages diverse CSR initiatives through the GEGives.com site including, International Rescue Committee, Ethiopian Orphan Relief, Hamlin Fistula Hospital, African Services Committee, and Jhpiego. These partners-in-giving help provide a superior education, daily nourishment, uniforms, and school supplies free of charge to children without resources around the world. GE gives their students the power of hope and education. The company fosters independence and creativity, instilling a love of learning that motivates students to surmount the many challenges that they face.
