When we decide to do something at VolunteerMatch, we jump all the way in. Case in point: Our recent announcement about building a global volunteer engagement network. Not only are we “going global” by building networks of nonprofits and volunteers in other countries, we’re also welcoming great social good tools and resources from elsewhere into the U.S.
One of our newest partners is everydayhero, an innovative online giving service from Blackbaud. Just recently arrived in the United States by way of Australia, everydayhero moves beyond traditional fundraising and crowdfunding services to offer a holistic giving experience that not only enables people to fundraise, but also track and view all the activity that goes into supporting the causes they love.
See It All in One Place
These days, donors are volunteers are donors. As nonprofits, we know the key is to build a dedicated, excited community of supporters that gives to our organization in multiple ways. Everydayhero provides a platform for your supporters to see their impact on a cause in a bunch of different ways, not just by donating.
What’s especially smart about this new platform is that it’s integrated with already existing tools to make the experience a well-connected part of users’ lives. Information is aggregated from Twitter, Facebook, VolunteerMarch, and MapMyFitness to create a unique Giving Footprint™ that grows over time.
How You Fit In
VolunteerMatch is excited that everydayhero is integrating our network to seamlessly track all of the hours spent volunteering and giving back. The platform also shows users more ways to volunteer in their communities for the causes they love.
So what does this mean for your organization?
Basically, just keep up the great work! Technology partnerships like this one with everydayhero enable VolunteerMatch to get your listings in front of even more great volunteers. So the more listings you post, the more your exposure to new supporters will increase – exponentially.
Share everydayhero with your volunteers to help them realize the impact of their work. And don’t forget to post your volunteer opportunities to VolunteerMatch!
