Product Spotlight: Quick Donate via Mobile Devices
Cost: Free for Everyone!

Do you wish your donors could use their phones to send money directly into your organization's account - with a single click? Fundraising professionals are under pressure to find new ways to take advantage of the fact that mobile has changed their donors' online lives. Emails are increasingly received and read on phones but the conversion rates are undermined by the difficulty of filling out forms on small devices. And how can we get away from the low return on "text to give", and still make use of the strong response inherent in SMS communication?
Blue State Digital has come up with an innovation that we believe will allow you to create a stronger-than-ever digital relationship with your donors. BSD Tools' Quick Donate allows secure online donations with a single click. Partners in Health is one of the early adopters of this technology. Learn more about it, and hear from PIH why they chose to take part, and some early results.
In this webinar, participants will:
- Learn the capabilities of Quick Donate
- Understand the uses for the program
- Hear about long-term expectations and short-term lessons from the field
