Vera Lloyd reaches 110% of their goal by partnering with HelloFund for their virtual fundraiser

Why did you select to work with HelloFund?

We chose HelloFund because of the great price and user-friendly platform. We knew we would need an event to become virtual quickly, and, after talking with Phil, we felt very confident that we would have a great event. The price, accessibility, and customer service easily convinced us that HelloFund is where we needed to be.

What makes HelloFund different from other fundraising platforms you’ve used in the past?

The high level of customer service and personal attention is a very unique aspect of what HelloFund has to offer. The platform itself was very user-friendly and customizable to our specific event needs. It took no time at all for my team to comfortably upload, edit and manage the event content pages.

 

Are there any specific examples that working with HelloFund has had a positive financial impact on your organization?

With a sudden economic crisis, due to COVID-19, our nonprofit needed to cut costs and raise as much money as possible. Our second largest fundraiser of the year fell right in the middle of this difficult time. HelloFund helped us quickly, efficiently and extremely cost-effectively turn an in-person event into a very successful online fundraiser. Our goal was to raise $10,000 through this event; due to low costs and excellent execution by HelloFund, we raised over $11,000. We are extremely pleased with how professional the entire online event looked and operated.

 

Would you recommend HelloFund to a friend?

We would absolutely recommend HelloFund to any nonprofit utilizing an online fundraising or event portal. Our favorite aspects of HelloFund are:

  • High customer service
  • User-friendly and customizable platform
  • Clean, professional and branded event pages
  • Great value with clear pricing structure and fees
Flower Hill doubled their fundraising revenue on GivingTuesday

Why did Flower Hill Foundation select HelloFund over other fundraising platforms?

It came highly recommended by another non-profit in Austin. We sent some questions over and they were answered quickly with full HelloFund support.

 

Have you done Giving Tuesday campaigns in the past?  If yes, how did your fundraising dollars compare from 2018 to 2019?

Yes. We did a simple FB and IG (with a newsletter) GivingTuesday campaign last year and we raised less then $10,000. This year, with the addition of the HelloFund peer-to-peer fundraising pages we more then doubled our impact from last year.

How did you promote your peer to peer fundraising campaign this year?  Did you do anything differently?  Social Media, Newsletters, Mailers?  Can you provide some details on how you enhanced giving in 2019?

We did social media, newsletters, did a kick off event and a mid-month event, pushed for media coverage around our opening which fell right in the middle of the GivingTuesday campaign.

 

For other nonprofits looking at a fundraising solution, can you provide some details of why they should select HelloFund?

HelloFund was not only easy to use, it was fun! Even for first time fundraisers, they were able to quickly and easily set up their pages. The helpful template emails provided by HelloFund were also a huge help!
