Challenge

Kids Kicking Cancer wanted to create a crowdfunding campaign to increase engagement for their Martial Arts Kick-a-Thon. They began their search for the best digital fundraising provider; however, this proved to be much harder than they originally thought. Finding the right provider was difficult because most providers either could not set-up the donation pages on such short notice, or because the amount they charged for processing was too high (6-7%!).

Solution

MobileCause offered a low 2.5% flat-rate credit card processing fee (and a 0% transaction fee), meaning more funds going directly to the cause. Additionally, the MobileCause Digital Marketing Services (DMS) team ensured that their campaign could be set up to drive maximum engagement by their deadline, and without stress or worry. Within a short period of time, Kids Kicking Cancer was ready to share this brand new crowdfunding donation option with their supporters to begin fundraising for their Martial Arts Kick-a-Thon. Schools and individuals were invited to create their own crowdfunding pages, which they could personalize and share with their social giving networks. Also, with the online donation form being mobile friendly and seamlessly integrating with their website, it not only made for an amazing donor experience, but made Kids Kicking Cancer look like their team of one was a whole department.

Impact

This last-minute campaign came together perfectly! 54 different teams signed up for crowdfunding pages and they raised $49,000 in just three months. All in all the crowdfunding was a success; but, most importantly Kids Kicking Cancer was able to benefit 400 more children with the help of MobileCause.
