The team here at DonationMatch is thrilled to announce that we recently launched a new online platform, The DonationMatch GiveBack Program! This new product connects restaurants and stores with nonprofit organizations to host in-store fundraisers. The GiveBack Program will be offered as a feature on our main platform, DonationMatch.com.
The GiveBack program was created to help any restaurant, brewery, winery, store, service, or online company looking to donate a percentage of sales to nonprofits and causes. The platform makes companies available to causes that are seeking fundraising options, providing easier scheduling and marketing for the businesses.
Restaurant fundraisers are popular events for charities and schools, because a percentage of the sales earned during that night are donated to a nonprofit hosting the event. Fundraisers have also been shown to be a great marketing tactic for businesses, by providing another method for gaining new clients and sales, while giving back to the local community.
The DonationMatch GiveBack tool contains many exciting features to assist with organizing an in-restaurant fundraiser. Some of the program features include:
Giving local fundraising leaders direct access to eligible programs
Easy event scheduling
Online marketing tools
Event tracking and reporting
Customizable automated reminders and workflow tools
Detailed records of event fundraising history
Ability for companies to view event fundraising records for donation decisions
Through the easy-to-use platform, restaurants can receive fundraiser requests, be able to provide event promotional tools to charities, and view analytics post-event.
“We are very excited to launch our latest product, the DonationMatch GiveBack Program, said Renee Zau, CEO at DonationMatch. “Current DonationMatch clients had expressed a need for a tool that efficiently manages and streamlines the process of hosting restaurant fundraisers.” Companies who contributed to the design and creation of the GiveBack program include: Buffalo Wild Wings, Dream Dinners, Picaboo, and Henebery Whiskey.
Zau is pleased to launch the GiveBack Program to provide even more functionality to the DonationMatch platform. Companies interested in trying out the new platform can sign up online through DonationMatch.com and may begin using the Starter option free of charge.
