Create Personalized Content for Your Donors

Have you ever wanted to display a graphic on your website for only one company and not others? Do you want to show a slideshow only on your home page and not the other pages of your website? 

You can do this by using Targets. Targets show or hide web content. Think of a Target as a "group of friends" on Facebook (your family, your co-workers, your classmates in high school, your close friends, etc.) that you use to show or hide your posts on Facebook. For example, "I want only my close friends to see this photo, all my other friends should not see it." Another example, "I want all my classmates in high school except Joe to see this message."

Targets can be used to show or hide features to groups of people, and are reusable in different portlets. Learn how to use Targets in this handy tutorial.

Data is the New Currency - Part 4

Over the past weeks, we have asked questions about your data. This week, let's dig into the final question ...
"Why do you collect the data you are storing?"

How does knowing this data benefit you? How does it grow your campaign, your organization's impact, and community support? The information you collect and store on those you know, want to know and those you serve is one of the most important assets your organization has if you know how to use it properly. Organizations need to have a strategic plan and look to grow each specific data point to make them as effective as possible.

This plan should be documented so that each database user understands its importance.

United Way of Midland County Launches Sharing Tree Impact Store

What more encompasses the holiday season than giving? Especially giving through online shopping. 

United Way of Midland County in Midland, Michigan leveraged our love of giving and shopping to boost donations at a time of year when those activities are at their highest. Their online Sharing Tree Impact Store lets donors choose and “purchase” basic need items or gifts to help bring holiday joy to those in need across their community. 

This Sharing Tree was created through the Shopping Cart feature in Andar/360's e-Pledge solution. We're happy to tell you more about e-Pledge, Shopping Cart, or designing your own custom giving websites. Contact us to start a conversation.
