We can’t wait to see how our product helps people to help people...says Ismert
Kansas City, Missouri (PRWEB) September 07, 2016
WonderWe.com, the free crowdfunding site focused on faith, family and friends, is helping individuals, nonprofit organizations, churches and schools go beyond “me” to find the power of “we” with the launching of their latest innovative features.
Founder Dominic Ismert discussed the vision at WonderWe, “We know that crowdfunding is here to stay. It works. People like it. There have been other crowdfunding sites that have become household names in recent years that are great products with great technology. We matched that tech – and improved upon it.”
These improved technologies include peer-to-peer fundraising, video share asking, a group feature, an organization portal combined with a zero fee model.
With peer-to-peer fundraising, once a campaign is launched it can be shared with others through social media, email or print. Those people can then raise money through the people they know, and so on. For example, if an individual wanted to raise money for a cause close to their heart, they could start a campaign through WonderWe to raise, let’s say, $5,000. They reach out to family, friends and coworkers and ask for support. They then can ask those supporters to start their own mini campaign to reach the people they know to raise a percentage of the main financial goal, such as $500 of the $5,000. Doing so, brings the ability to reach a far greater number of donors than with traditional fundraising and a large financial goal seems easier to obtain when broken down into mini goals.
Video share asking is an option to create a short video recording and share it through email to those they know. This feature gives supporters a more personalized experience and makes a fundraising campaign really stand out.
The group feature allows users to directly invite whomever they choose to help as an administrator of the campaign. Administrators have access to edit the fundraising information, post updates, promote it and view the campaign data. Fundraisers can have greater success overall by enlisting the help of several administrators. Not only can they help oversee the specifics of running a fundraiser and take that weight off of an individual, they can provide vital feedback, ideas, talents and skills. This is especially helpful for those who have never ran a fundraising campaign before.
An organization portal is for nonprofit organizations, churches, missions, schools and more who can apply to run campaigns on WonderWe. If an organization meets the criteria, the organization will be given a dashboard and excellent tools to create a fundraising campaign, launch it and invite their supporters to give. They can also ask those donors to start their own mini campaigns through the peer-to-peer feature.
Best of all, WonderWe features a zero fee model. To start a fundraiser on the site, there are no costs beyond a standard credit card processing fee. Unlike other crowdfunding sites, WonderWe does not take a profit from the monies raised. This means more money for the given cause. WonderWe only asks for a donation from the donor that is completely optional.
Ismert feels having a social product built around core fundraising features empowers a future where more tools, like these innovative ones focused on the power of the “we,” can be created. “We can’t wait to see how our product helps people to help people,” he said.
WonderWe was created in January 2014 to provide users with a top-notch fundraising experience by utilizing advanced technology through a positive atmosphere. It embraces traditional values, such as pro-life efforts, that other crowdfunding sites don’t. This mix of technology and conservative values is something WonderWe hopes will make them stand out in the crowdfunding arena.
