GiveMN is mobilicious!

Jeff Achen10/28/11

GiveMN has never been easier to use. Whether you’re usinig it on a computer, tablet or phone, online fundraising has never looked this good. And, you don’t have to download or install an app on your mobile device to use it. It’s mobilicious!

Pledge

When viewing the GiveMN.org on a mobile device, donors can choose to “pledge” or “donate.” Maybe they want to make a donation, but they don’t have their credit card or they need to check with their spouse or partner? “Pledging” allows them to take action without having to enter credit card or lengthy contact information. All they need to enter is an email address. A reminder email is sent to them to complete the donation later.

Donate

Making a mobile donation is quick and clean on GiveMN. Donors don’t even need an account. They simply enter their name, address and credit card information. If they do have an account, they can simply log in and donate with the credit card information on file.

Better than Text Giving

Unlike text-to-give donations, mobile giving on GiveMN doesn’t carry heavy fees from mobile service providers. GiveMN’s credit card processing fee is just 2.9%, one of the lowest of any of the online giving platforms.

Use your location

Fundraiser and Project page “meetups” make it easier for you to take mobile donations at a fundraising event. Specify a date and location for your fundraiser or project and mobile visitors to GiveMN.org will immediately see a list of fundraising meetups in their area - allowing them to quickly donate to your cause.  Your donors never need to carry their wallets to your fundraising events ever again!
