(3BL Media) Los Angeles, CA - April 2, 2012 - Causecast today unveiled a new web-based solution that gives nonprofits free inclusion in employee volunteer and giving programs and corporate cause marketing campaigns at

The Los Angeles, Calif.-based leader in the cause integration space is dedicated to creating a mutually beneficial “social ecosystem” that helps businesses better leverage their support for nonprofits. To that end, Causecast recently launched its Employee Impact Platform, which provides corporations a state-of-the-art system to make employee volunteer and giving programs as simple, effective and compelling as possible. With the announcement of its new companion site for nonprofits, Causecast has created a complete solution to easily connect participating nonprofits with employee volunteers and donors.

According to Causecast Founder and Chief Executive Officer Ryan Scott, the company offers nonprofits a centralized portal to receive a wide array of free resources. “For the first time, nonprofits can access large employee volunteer and donor pools at no cost, with no expense for donation processing,” Scott explained.  “This will transform how nonprofits garner support in the corporate sector.”

(Out)Laws & Justice is one example of how Causecast works with its nonprofit clients to optimize their fundraising results.  Lisa Citron, executive director of (Out)Laws & Justice, noted: “During these trying economic times, nonprofits like (Out)Laws & Justice are looking for creative and cost-effective ways to stretch every dollar donated and find volunteers who bring energy and people power to students who put history on stage. Causecast has been key to helping us reach our online fundraising goals in the past,” Citron said. “Going forward, we're excited to participate in Causecast's new platform that will connect us to even more channels of support and foster greater collaboration with corporate America.”

Some of the no-cost features that are exclusively available through the Causecast platform include:

  • Access to a large base of employee volunteers and donors;
  • Access to the campaigns and corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs of Causecast’s business clients;
  • Ready-to-use, distributable fundraising tools;
  • Easy donation processing capability;
  • The most robust and powerful back-end technology in the industry;
  • User-friendly, simple and uncluttered interface;
  • Fully integrated, one-stop, centralized platform;
  • Impact Tracker, which assesses the real-world outcomes of volunteering and giving;
  • Customizable and versatile donation widget builder (a.k.a. mini-application or badge) that seamlessly integrates into any organization's website;
  • Fundraising activity and volunteer information generated through Causecast can be easily tracked, analyzed and downloaded; and
  • Superior customer support.

Scott added, “Causecast provides thousands of organizations the tools to inspire, engage and activate their supporters.  Our new expandable platform not only increases the opportunities for employee volunteers to now give back, but also the ways that they can do so, for example with skills-based volunteering.” Examples of Causecast’s partner nonprofits include: National Forensic League’s Give Youth A Voice program; charity: water; Habitat for Humanity; TreePeople; American Red Cross; and Save The Children.

"Developing relationships and acquiring new donors is a tough challenge for nonprofits, but a steady pipeline of relationships is critical to our sustainability," said Sarah Shirazi, development director of Colorado Progressive Coalition. "Colorado Progressive Coalition has benefited greatly from Causecast's technology tools. I am confident the Employee Impact Platform will be a game-changer for how we achieve visibility and find new advocates in the business sector."
