Reston, Va. – July 20, 2020 – FrontStream, the leading provider of a complete suite of products that empower registered nonprofit organizations and socially responsible corporations to raise more funds securely and easily for causes that effect positive change, today announced new major enhancements to its all-in-one digital fundraising platform, Panorama.
The latest Panorama platform update extends robust enterprise functionality and top PCI level 1 compliance to U.S.-based nonprofits of all sizes with the introduction of Panorama Basic. A self-enrollment, subscription-free plan, Panorama Basic enables nonprofits to easily create high-quality, custom branded donation pages and start securely raising funds immediately. Additional enhancements include expanded cross-channel donor and event participant engagement, robust, deep analytical reporting and drag-and-drop user interface and content editing upgrades. These enhancements aim to enable nonprofits to better plan, manage, promote and securely process fundraising auctions, peer-to-peer, virtual events and donation campaigns from one complete, integrated platform.
Economic uncertainty and the COVID-19 global health pandemic are severely impacting nonprofit fundraising, with charitable giving down 6% in the first quarter of 2020, according to the Fundraising Effectiveness Project 2020 First Quarter Report. If the decline in charitable giving continues throughout the rest of 2020, nonprofits will lose more than $25B based on 2019 numbers from Giving USA. To continue to support the good that nonprofits do, FrontStream’s Panorama platform enhancements – including Panorama Basic and simplified virtual giving features – empower nonprofits to immediately raise more funds, from any location and on any device.
“We understand the tremendous amount of pressure nonprofits are experiencing to keep the lights on and move their missions forward,” said Terry LoPresti, chief technology officer, FrontStream. “Our aim with these updates is to make fundraising as simple, easy and cost-effective as possible while arming nonprofits with the actionable insight needed to power continuous improvement.”
