Horsham, PA (PRWEB) December 03, 2015
DonorPerfect Fundraising Software announced today that nonprofit organizations that use DonorPerfect to track donations on #GivingTuesday processed a record $14,906,357. Online donations accounted for $2.3 million of this impressive total. Online giving increased more than 2.7x from 2014. The average gift amount increased 29% to $174.83, and nearly 35% of donations were made on mobile devices.
#GivingTuesday is both a national day of giving and a social media phenomenon. On this hashtag holiday, communities rally around causes they care about by giving to their favorite nonprofit organizations and sharing their participation on social media.
Jon Biedermann, Vice President for DonorPerfect remarked, "It's clear that the well-organized #GivingTuesday campaign had an impact on nonprofit organizations' ability to raise more money than ever before.
DonorPerfect clients were encouraged to take advantage of the increased public awareness. As a result, they sent emails and leveraged Facebook and Twitter to get their message out about their participation in #GivingTuesday. The outpouring of generosity from the public is a testament to the American tradition of giving to those less fortunate, especially during the holidays."
Rob Strickler, product manager for DonorPerfect's integrated online forms product (WebLink) says,"Our clients who've embraced #GivingTuesday have experienced incredible success over the past four years, but this year's results were staggering! We've done all we can to encourage and educate clients to participate, but what's most gratifying to me is watching their fundraising success on this extraordinary day. #GivingTuesday is no longer a phenomenon – it's a proven fundraising opportunity that all nonprofits should plan for every year!"
