There are so many people within the community that want to support good causes, but sometimes linking the two groups can be a challenge. Understanding the powerful impact that fundraising can have on not-for-profits, this Australian based online fundraising platform aims to make a difference.
By providing digital solutions and tools to not-for-profits and charities, they remove many of the pain points around obtaining funds. They also make it easy for individuals to find and support causes that align with their values.
Just some of the digital tools they offer include:
Access to an online fundraising platform
A website plug-in that makes it easier for people to donate
QR codes that, once scanned, direct individuals to donate
More than 85% of Australian’s and 92% of Kiwi’s use a smartphone, with about 85 million messages sent every day in Australia and 20 million in NZ. On average, people look at their phones once every 4 minutes throughout the day.
Being such a powerful tool for connecting people with worthy causes, Whispir has built a safe, secure and reliable SMS gateway to help charitable organisations connect, reduce revenue gathering overheads and increase donation frequency and value.
There are three key aspects to the Whispir Platform that make the solution easy and reliable to use:
When a charity signs up with Whispir, they are given a unique keyword. Then, when individuals text in this unique keyword, the Whispir platform automatically recognises it and sends back a text message with a link to donate.
This powerful and instant automation ensures that people can donate straight away, reducing the usual friction points that occur between first capturing a donor’s attention and them completing a donation.
People who text in receive a unique link, which takes them directly to a webpage where they can make their donation. Creating this direct link makes it easier for people to make their donation, removing one of the main pain points in raising funds.
Because all elements of sending, receiving, and managing these SMS messages are handled within Whispir, it’s easy for the online fundraising platform to get a comprehensive view over everything. Whispir offers intelligent reporting tools – including data on when a message has been received, viewed, and actioned.
Better reporting tools make for better communications. By analysing engagement levels on text messages, the online fundraising platform can continue to strengthen their communications and broaden their impact within the community even further.
