RallyUp reinvents fundraising events with the launch of a new donation platform; Enables organizations to harness the growing trend of micro-philanthropy in the changing world of hybrid events
TUCSON, Arizona., September 15, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Rally, a leading virtual fundraising platform, today announced the launch of its new virtual and hybrid event solution, designed specifically for fundraising, which enables organizers to manage ticketing, live streaming, donations, and more, all in a seamless and interactive solution suite.
As digitization continues to change everything in the way people work, live and interact on a day-to-day basis, there has been a paradigm shift in the way giving takes place, with younger generations increasingly interested in micro-philanthropy. As individual donation amounts may decrease, awareness, mobilization and the volume of cause-based donations increase. However, without the tools and technology to capitalize on this change, organizations will miss out on a new audience of donors.
âThe traditional in-person gala is always important in the context of fundraising, but it’s not where the majority of donations happen today. Donors today are part of a new hybrid world, where offline and online meet, and they want to be able to participate in giving events with the same flexibility that they approach the rest of their lives, âsaid declared Steve bernat, CEO, RallyUp. âBut this changing face of fundraising wouldn’t be possible without technology to enhance the donation experience. If organizers don’t embrace new solutions now, they will lose important opportunities to raise more money in this changing world, and could even risk losing their entire donor audience. “
Until now, event planners have been forced to juggle disparate fundraising solutions for ticketing, live streaming, donations, and more. if they wanted to capitalize on the experience of the virtual or hybrid event. Organizers often waste days or weeks trying to evaluate the right apps and services that they hope will appeal to donors. At a live event, however, it is chaotic to put together incompatible solutions, both for the showrunners and for the donors. With RallyUp’s virtual and hybrid event solution, nonprofit staff and volunteers can free up more time for other important activities for their cause.
âAt Project Koru’s flagship event, Kiteboard 4 Cancer, we count on the generosity of our donors to help young adult cancer survivors find healing through the community and beyond. Unfortunately, the pandemic has made it harder than ever for people to participate meaningfully in our cause, âsaid Beth peck, executive director of Project Koru and client of RallyUp. âAs the future of charity events takes shape in this new hybrid world, we are excited to use RallyUp’s new live streaming platform to grow our fundraising efforts and engage new donors from around the world. ”
Main characteristics of virtual and hybrid events
RallyUp’s virtual and hybrid event solution allows organizations to easily bring together on-site attendees with a virtual audience by allowing them to connect, compete and participate together in a wide variety of traditional activities such as raffles, raffles, auctions and sales, as well as new features in RallyUp, including:
- Robust event platform – Organizations can live broadcast to over 10,000 attendees with all the features needed to host a major virtual fundraising event.
- Interactive live broadcast actions – Actions such as quizzes, featured articles, paddle raises, flash auctions and raffles, and donate to vote help virtual event planners engage more donors to fully support their cause.
- Unique experience page – Donors often have to browse one or more URLs to participate in an organization’s fundraising activities before an event, and then a different URL during the live streamed event. Now, organizers can share a single URL that donors can use from start to finish.
- Unlimited and closed live streaming – Organizers can host as many livestreams as they want for a single experience. Live broadcasts can also be limited to people who purchase tickets, or they can be open to the public.
âVirtual or not, it is essential that any fundraising event runs smoothly to have the most impact for a worthy cause,â continued Bernat. “Our new live streaming solution helps organizations transform every step of the fundraising process so they can focus on inspiring donors to connect more with their mission.”
