YourCause Releases a New Nonprofit Portal to Maximize Workplace Giving Programs
We are excited to announce the launch of our new online portal specifically for nonprofit organizations seeking to interact with the YourCause network of corporate employee giving, volunteering, and sustainability programs. The new platform will continue to be offered to all qualified nonprofits at no cost and will give them increased capabilities to interact with more than 2.5 million employees throughout the world.
Since 2011 YourCause has grown nearly 80% year-over-year, expanding the network of corporate employee engagement programs and overall participant base. The expansion has spurred the need for greater interactivity between corporations, employees, and the nonprofits they are supporting. Online tools, such as those developed by YourCause, continue to allow nonprofits to interact with donors and volunteers in a cost-effective and scalable manner.
Key improvements to the nonprofit portal include:
- Redesigned layout with consolidated navigation for greater ease of use
- Advanced account management with multiple admins, document uploads and disclaimers
- Expanded volunteer tool for event messaging and participant reports
- More viewing filters for giving and volunteer pages
- Mobile accessibility
“I continue to push YourCause in a direction that creates greater efficiencies for all donors and nonprofits, allowing more causes to actually be achieved each day,” said Founder and CEO Matt Combs. “Our new nonprofit portal is a great step in delivering enhanced functionality, but also (and more importantly), paves the way for future functionality that will further deliver value and impact to those seeking to change our word.”
In 2013, more than 42,000 charities received over $76 million in donations through the CSRconnect platform and over 7,800 charity admins utilized the nonprofit platform. Since the start of 2014, over 2,300 new charity admins have registered in the nonprofit portal, and YourCause expects this to increase by 15-20% throughout the year. Additional enhancements to the nonprofit portal will be released as YourCause continues to develop new features for giving, volunteering, and corporate grants.
