Our event needed to go from physical to digital in just a few days, and the platform far exceeded our expectations.
WASHINGTON (PRWEB) April 23, 2020
Givebutter, one of the fastest-growing and best-rated nonprofit technology platforms, is proud to announce the launch of Livestream, a completely free product for real-time, virtual event fundraising.
The Givebutter team designed and launched Livestream in less than two weeks to combat COVID-19 charity spring event cancellations. Livestream is now freely available to all nonprofits, small businesses, and individuals in need of a fundraising page for virtual events. Givebutter’s Livestream product has arrived just in time for #GivingTuesdayNow on May 5th, 2020, with features such as “e-tickets,” live streaming, text-to-donate, peer-to-peer pages, and a Venmo integration – all in one place, all in real-time.
“We had never run a virtual event prior to working with Givebutter, and we couldn’t be happier with the results,” said one of the U.S.’s largest faith-based charities, BBYO’s Movement Strategy and Operations Associate, Nolan Hausler. “Our event needed to go from physical to digital in just a few days, and the platform far exceeded our expectations."
Livestream was launched in collaboration with leading nonprofit technology companies Bloomerang, ThankView, and ToneDen to offer a virtual giving experience unlike any other. Livestream empowers users to stream live and pre-recorded video via Zoom, Facebook Live, YouTube Live, Vimeo, and Twitch, and easily embed these streams into a campaign page.
