ExtraOrdinary Give is a nonprofit agency which helps nonprofits raise funds through local charitable donations by promoting a Day of Giving in their community. Local nonprofits/charities struggle to get recognition against the national organizations when it comes to getting financial donations. The Day of Giving is an opportunity to both heighten awareness and to promote the causes of each organization.
Many local charities simply don't have the money or skills to develop an effective program to help market their services, to get their message out, or even develop a websites of their own. It became clear to us that local fundraising at a local level could use a helping hand. That is why we started ExtraOrdinary Give.
ExtraOrdinary Give will form partnerships with local nonprofits within those communities it supports. We will help provide them the opportunity to raise funds and to solicit volunteers to help with their cause. ExtraOrdinary Give’s goal is to foster a commitment to giving and volunteering that will help promote the social causes of each of these organizations.
ExtraOrdinary Give is seeking to create a mobile capability that will help to nonprofits engage more with their donors and volunteers. As it gains traction and is adopted, it helps us enhance our mission, to foster a commitment to giving and volunteering that will promote social friendships and reassert a sense of hope in local communities.
As a user accesses the mobile capability they should be able to easily create an account, find a nonprofit to help, make a decision to donate money or volunteer their time, and either complete a donation or accept an opportunity to volunteer. Additional features will allow the user to save their favorite nonprofits, research nonprofits and get detailed information regarding their mission, their contact information, and their financials.
To be determined.
