Every nonprofit on Causecast gets access to our no-cost donations processing and free, ready-to-use donation tools. Now, we've made this powerful functionality even more useful.
We're excited to announce that starting immediately, nonprofits can customize their free donation widget (also known as a mini-application or badge), with the ability to add custom colors, images and headlines!
Customizing the donation widget will make it seamlessly integrate into any organization's website and can be your new, free, donation call-to-action on your organization’s website or blog. Or use the custom widget builder to create a new widget whenever you have a new campaign, upcoming event, or partnership you want to highlight with unique colors, messaging and logos.
This no-cost customizable fundraising tool provides nonprofits with a way to amplify the reach of fundraising efforts, participate in cause marketing, and ultimately raise more money online... because it's all free.
There is no cost to join Causecast to access the tool, and no cost for using it to process donations for your organization. Read more >>
Causecast Introduces New Cause Marketing Technology Platform to Easily Connect Nonprofits and Brands
If you're a nonprofit without a dedicated marketing professional or corporate sponsor, Causecast’s marketing campaigns and services offer up an easy solution to power your cause marketing efforts. And today, we've taken our service to a whole new level.
Before we tell you about how we can help, a quick word about cause marketing -- a critical component of your nonprofit's success. Cause marketing encompasses a wide variety of commercial activity that aligns a company or brand with a cause in order to generate business and societal benefits. (You can read more on this in the Cause Marketing Forum) In return, nonprofits gain exposure, awareness and fundraising opportunities.
Just how important are your cause marketing campaigns? In thier essay, "How To Stand Out From The Other 1.5 Million Nonprofits in the United States," Better World Cause Marketing put it succinctly:
“Essentially, cause marketing is a way to go far beyond fundraising. It’s a way to effectively produce massive education and public awareness initiatives and inevitably get noticed by the right types of citizens."
