Givematcher Update April 2014
It’s been a very busy few weeks here at Givematcher! Here is our latest news.
Four companies matching donations to ALL charities
Givematcher allows donors to donate to charities and have their donation matched by a company. In the last update we revealed that in just the first few weeks, several insightful companies have already become matchers, pledging over $100,000 of matching donations. This has now grown to close to $150,000 and it will continue to increase quickly as many more smart companies are already seeing the customer loyalty and marketing potential of offering to match their existing and potential customers’ donations.
Now, we have some more brilliant news. Four companies have decided to match donations to ALL charities. That means that every charity that registers will automatically start with four companies matching donations to them. Charities just need to register for FREE to gain access to these matching company donations.
As a reminder, timings for our full launch are:
March/April – charities register.
April/May – promote to matching companies. They will only be able to select to match charities that are registered with Givematcher.
May/June – launch to the public.
