LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 16, 2013) - MobileCause, a premier fundraising and mobile marketing platform, is pleased to announce the launch of a zero percent transaction fee model designed to eliminate costs for organizations. Until now, mobile and online fundraising providers have charged a variety of transaction fees, which have eaten into money earmarked for important programs. MobileCause's new model enables organizations to raise more capital, increase fundraising transparency and ensure 100 percent of contributions are used for intended purposes.
In an increasingly mobile environment, organizations are lagging behind in the adoption of mobile as a fundraising channel. Pricing and remittance complexities inherent in mobile fundraising have contributed to slow adoption rates. Typically, fundraising providers charge between five and ten percent for transaction fees, plus additional setup fees and monthly service charges. MobileCause's simplified new model includes a fixed monthly fee for everyday mobile and online fundraising.
"When people make a donation to our cause, they want to know their money will make a difference," said Nick Ward, senior director information technology of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. "MobileCause puts us in a position where we can accept a donation and put the maximum amount of that contribution toward supporting Children's Miracle Network Hospitals."
Ninety-one percent of American adults have cell phones and 61 percent are smartphone users. More than 50 percent of these users make regular financial transactions from their mobile device. As more and more people become comfortable transacting via mobile, fundraising opportunities increase for causes. MobileCause offers several plan types with zero percent transaction fee limits for mobile, online and carrier billed donations. All MobileCause plans include a comprehensive suite of mobile technologies for everyday fundraising and communication.
"With mobile adoption on the rise, we have found that people are incredibly excited and more motivated to give when 100 percent of their donation goes toward programs," stated Sean MacNeill, CEO of MobileCause. "We want to translate that excitement to all of our clients and give them the ability to inspire their donors to do more. Our feature-rich cloud solution combined with our new pricing model allows organizations to maximize their ability to secure donations and know that 100 percent of what is given is going to the cause."
