Fundly Connect named Points of Light Strategic Alliance Partner
Rohnert Park, CA (December 15, 2015) – NonProfitEasy, the end-to-end technology solution for nonprofits, has released Fundly Connect, its new volunteer management software within its Fundly suite of products. Fundly Connect is a next generation global and digital volunteer management platform that was developed as part of the company’s ongoing effort to provide innovative and integrated management tools for nonprofits.
“So much emphasis is placed on fundraising technology, which is important, but equally important to a nonprofit is the people who help them fulfill their mission,” said Lomesh Shah, CEO and founder of NonProfitEasy. “Fundly Connect will simplify the way people connect with volunteer opportunities not only on an individual level but through corporate involvement, local governments, and universities. In addition, the convergence between volunteerism and giving can be optimized if an organization chooses to do so, and data can be integrated with our Fundly CRM. It’s a tremendous leap forward for our customers and will help them grow and scale appropriately without needing to switch to another platform in the future.”
In addition to the new release, Fundly Connect has established a strategic alliance with Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service.
“Realizing the pace at which customer needs and technology offerings are evolving in our sector, and in order to best serve our mission, we are pleased to have formed a strategic alliance with Fundly Connect,” said Tracy Hoover, CEO of Points of Light. “Its rich set of volunteer management features that can also be integrated with Fundly’s larger suite of tools for nonprofits, and the team’s vision and commitment to continue to innovate to lead the ongoing trends in the market makes it a good fit for our affiliates.”
The system offers a robust feature set that includes the ability to capitalize on corporate involvement and measure corporate impact, intelligent run-time reporting and dashboards, customized web pages and page editor, donation and opportunity widgets, and an online volunteer check-in and check-out feature. Premium access offers several pricing levels based upon an organization’s user requirements.
