Zavee Partners with Text My Pledge to Get New Fundraising Options for Non-Profits
Today, fundraising, a kind of modern-day philanthropy, is done in many parts of the world. In order to bring innovative new fundraising options, Zavee, a local shopping rewards program, has recently partnered with Text My Pledge.
This opportunity to earn rewards from Zavee's network of local merchants is a value-added benefit for consumers who use the Text My Pledge platform to make a donation from their phone. So this is win-win deal for Zavee and Text My Pledge!
Both of the companies are piloting their new program in South Florida, with plans to expand nationally. On the other hand, when Zavee shoppers shop, they additionally earn cash back rewards when they shop at any of the more than 500 participating local merchants. Zavee shoppers also earn Care Shares, which Zavee converts to cash that it donates to Zavee member causes in the shopper's name.
'Text My Pledge appeals to people who are confident in their opinions and decisive in their actions,' said Ron Stack, COO of Zavee. 'These are the same characteristics that make great Zavee shoppers. We want to reward Text My Pledge donors in a way they will find relevant - and Zavee offers fill the bill completely.'
Text My Pledge is also using fundraising tool of texting donations to the next level. It follows up with donors, who fulfill their pledge with a credit or debit card.
'In the past, people supported causes through an additional charge on their phone bill, but there were strict limits imposed on how much could be donated, and the charity received little or no data about individual donors,' explained Foos.
'Working with Text My Pledge is a natural extension of Zavee's commitment to local causes,' Stack added in a statement
. 'The power of fundraising through Zavee has not yet been fully tapped. But we feel that by working together we will bring unprecedented fundraising capabilities to our community.'
