FirstGiving and Eventbrite Partner for Seamless Fundraiser Event Management
Eventbrite and FirstGiving have announced a partnership and product integration that will provide nonprofit organizations with a holistic view of essential event and fundraising data. Eventbrite, the leading online ticketing and registration platform that has issued over $1 billion in tickets, will now include access to FirstGiving’s suite of powerful online fundraising tools. Likewise, FirstGiving, an established online donation management platform, has integrated Eventbrite’s intuitive event management services into their nonprofit toolkit giving charities, fundraisers, and donors the ability to make a greater impact for their causes.
To take advantage of the integrated FirstGiving/Eventbrite solution, nonprofit organizations that are utilizing either platform will simply connect their FirstGiving and Eventbrite accounts to access ticket sales and donation data in the FirstGiving dashboard for all their active fundraising events. This data will allow nonprofits to see a complete picture of the participants who are attending their fundraising events, and any funds that each individual has raised, as part of their participation.
This kind of visibility offered through the integration of Eventbrite for nonprofits and FirstGiving’s platform will be particularly useful for organizations that use participatory sporting events like fun runs and marathons to raise money. Being able to access real-time data that reflects attendance and fundraising engagement will make it easier for organizations to tailor their marketing initiatives as they prepare for a big event or race.
This partnership between FirstGiving and Eventbrite for nonprofits also enables organizations to import event attendee lists into email outreach campaigns, as a means of keeping supporters connected to the cause. “At Eventbrite, we believe that building a community of supporters at an event is one of the most powerful ways for an organization to gather and retain loyal donors and volunteers,” said Mitch Colleran, Partnership Manager at Eventbrite. “We’re very excited to be partnering with FirstGiving to make it even easier for organizations to integrate events into their fundraising strategy.”
Nina Vellayan, CEO and President of FirstGiving, adds, “Partnerships like this are at the core of our commitment to deliver comprehensive solutions to charitable organizations and the people that support them. Our experience has taught us that event-driven fundraising has been a key to the success of some of our largest organizations and Eventbrite’s best-in-class services are a perfect fit.”
With over a decade of experience, FirstGiving has enabled fundraisers and donors to generate millions of dollars in donations for the causes they care about. Through their easy-to-use online solutions and educational webinar series, FirstGiving continues to share knowledge and develop creative solutions that help nonprofits advance their causes. Through its nonprofit program, Eventbrite for Causes, Eventbrite for nonprofits offers reduced rates to 501(c)(3) organizations.
