The Alzheimer’s Association hosts ‘A Reason to Hope’ event every spring. This event is a national endeavor that brings in significant funding for the organization. They wanted to eliminate paper donations and offer a more modern and interactive method of donating during the event. Also needing technology to assist in silent auction fundraising, they looked towards MobileCause.
With the help of MobileCause, they were able to offer a text-to-donate form to their donors that could be texted to anyone who desired to make a gift. They also improved event participation by having their staff walk around with credit card swipers to process the silent auction items and raffle tickets. As well as the swipers, they projected a MobileCause thermometer that showed donations as they were made and identified the donors on the screen. This strategy was put in place to energize the crowd and motivate donors to give in the moment.
ALZ was very satisfied as the result of the MobileCause solution was an easy and effortless donation process. Throughout the many events spread across the United States, the fundraisers averaged $20,000+, 78 donors, and a $275 average donation. By choosing to incorporate technology they were able to enhance their event attendee experience and increase overall engagement.
