To hit those fundraising targets, non-profit and corporate giving teams must be savvy marketers, financial forecasters, and tenacious salespeople. And when you're always prepping for the next fundraising drive, it's easy to lose focus on your mission.

Donately is a fundraising platform that's like having an extra team on standby. With support for peer-to-peer fundraising, custom donation forms, and competition-style campaigns, Donately allows you to choose the best approach for your fundraising targets.

The Donately payment platform stands out for its simplified way of making recurring donations. Donors can easily manage payments, freeing your team to focus on your organization's mission.

Unfortunately, there's no "off-season" for fundraising, so keeping your donors engaged and encouraging ongoing contributions is essential. Stay connected to your donors with a simple Zap (our word for automated workflows) that automatically creates or updates Mailchimp subscribers when there's a new Donately donation. 

The challenge: Your organization relies on donations, but revenue fluctuates with the seasons.

The solution: Automatically add donors to a mailing list in Mailchimp when they donate through Donately. Maintain a steady donor pipeline with emails sent between campaigns.
