At MobileCause, Your Cause Is Our Cause

Editor’s note: We’re excited to publish this post by MobileCause in our series highlighting some of the partners who are using GuideStar data to make the world a better place.

At MobileCause, Your Cause Is Our Cause

MobileCause provides easy-to-use digital fundraising and communication solutions for nonprofits. Our software platform includes digital solutions for online fundraising, fundraising events, peer-to-peer and crowdfunding, campaign promotion, and data management. To date, more than 20 million donors have connected to nonprofits through our fundraising platform.

Our goal is to help nonprofit organizations raise more money with less time and effort. The MobileCause platform is designed to help organizations acquire new donors, maximize giving from existing donors, increase recurring donor gifts, reduce administrative overhead, and lower the cost of fundraising.

MobileCause relies on GuideStar Charity Check to ensure that donations go to organizations eligible to received tax-exempt contributions.

We Make Fundraising Fun and Easy

Fundraising online? Linking MobileCause into your fundraising plan is simple. Build a customized donation form with your organization’s branding. You even have the option to set up a text-to-give keyword and embed the form right on your website or Facebook page.

Hosting an event? Empower your attendees to make and fulfill a pledge at the event using only their mobile phones. Once a pledge is made it will appear instantly on the live fundraising thermometer and donor wall, which can be displayed on screen at the event to create a sense of community and exciting moment of giving.

Looking to start a crowdfunding movement? For crowdfunding or peer-to-peer fundraising campaigns, simply set up your campaign donation page and keyword to start accepting contributions from donors. You can enable separate fundraising pages for teams and corporate partners. And the best part? Supporters can sign up to raise money on behalf of your cause in just minutes and receive their own personalized keyword so friends and family can text-to-donate directly to their campaign. All funds are remitted directly to your organization.

Go Beyond Fundraising with Digital Marketing Services

Many organizations struggle with finding the time, staff, and resources to create and launch campaigns. MobileCause Digital Marketing Services was established to fill that void for customers by leveraging the knowledge and experience of the MobileCause digital marketing team. Since the launch of Digital Marketing Services in early 2017, MobileCause has already helped more than 200 nonprofit organizations by creating their online fundraising campaigns and getting them up and running successfully, incorporating mobile-first strategies and best practices such as storytelling, fundraising asks, and effective follow-up through the MobileCause platform.
