Texting for large gifts? Join a live video conversation with Mobile Cause CEO

The Chronicle of Philanthropy’s recent article, “Some Charities Find Text-Pledging Events Can Bring Large Donations,”offers case studies from NPOs trying new things with mobile fundraising.

Most organizations associate mobile with text micro gifts. But for most organizations that may not be the biggest opportunity.

Vokle co-founder Edward Dekeratry recently demonstrated the platform for us. It was impressive.  You can easily broadcast live events onlinedirectly to supporters, donors, and stakeholders no matter where they are, right from your organization’s website. You can host a panel. All events are archived for later viewing and sharing.  This could take online community interaction to a new level, empowering organizations to reach out to their online community, engage in meaningful, real-time dialogue, and expand their brand presence.

We’ve asked Vokle’s founders to do a live demo right here on our site. They’ll demonstrate the platform in action, and you’ll be able to interact with it. They’ll share case studies like Richard Branson and Imogen Heap’s charity fundraiser for Pakistan, with virtual live performances from musicians such as Ben Folds, Amanda Palmer, Zoe Keating, and others. And we can talk about possible uses such as town halls, fundraisers, dialogues with donors, and more.
