A huge thanks to the MobileCause team for helping us host a successful event. I was very impressed with how incredibly attentive everyone was and how quickly they were able to set up our account and event page. Additionally, the team was able to provide helpful tips on how to build a strong campaign.

Challenge

This year alone, Part of the Solution (POTS) will assist over 25,000 people, 8,000 of whom are children, living in poverty. Having reached their fundraising goal by selling aprons at their previous event, they wanted to increase their goal and maybe even top it–after all feeding and clothing this many people is very expensive. To do this, they needed to boost attendance and increase their fundraising results at their ‘I Heart POTS Party’ event; however, they didn’t know how they were going to do it.

Solution

With the help of Digital Marketing Services (DMS) at MobileCause, the answer became clear. The DMS team evaluated their needs, developed a strategy and quickly helped them prepare for their event. This included setting up their text-to-donate page, developing a custom event thermometer, and providing comprehensive event fundraising best practices for the platform. POTS was now ready maximize their fundraising with social media copy designed for increased engagement, improved story-telling to impact the crowd, and a powerful donation ask to drive action at the event. With the support of the DMS team, the ‘I Heart POTS Party’ was transformed into a fundraising dream event.

Impact

The outcome of the event was incredible, and POTS raised $39,412 from just 74 attendees. This was a 58% fundraising increase from the previous year, and made for an average gift size of over $500! It was clear that the event was successful due to the support of the DMS team applying best practices on the MobileCause platform. POTS was delighted that with the funds raised, they were able to feed 1,600 more people, and help 60 more families with their Food Pantry services for a year!
