Conventional wisdom would have you believe that the Internet is a virtual ATM for political and nonprofit fundraising. The reality is that online fundraising does provide many benefits over direct mail and telemarketing—but even the most sophisticated organizations must work continuously to recruit and retain online donors and activists. The Internet is a crowded ﬁeld and successful campaigns have to distinguish themselves and their cause.
Our approach to online fundraising consists of four pillars:
- Provide the best online fundraising tools available. Our ARCOS technology platform includes all the fundraising tools you need to succeed, including easily customizable one-time and recurring giving, tribute giving, community fundraising, itemized giving, membership purchase and renewal, in-language giving, ticket purchase, A/B testing, and telemarketing. ARCOS leads the the industry in ease-of-use, flexibility, security, and stability.
- Make it easy. Our tools make it simple to create and manage even the most advanced fundraising pages, campaigns, and emails. Your fundraising tools are on the same platform as your website, donor database and email delivery tools so you're not stuck trying to coordinate multiple systems that don't play nicely. Finely segmenting your list is a breeze. Real-time reporting and analytics are built-in so you can maximize your results with a minimum of effort.
- Make it cost-effective. Our fees are limited to one-time setup fees and a simple monthly hosting and support fee. We don't charge per-contribution, per-email, or per-user fees, and we don't hold on to your money—every dollar you raise goes straight from the donor to your bank account.
- Be a trusted resource. We have nearly a decade of experience in online fundraising and have raised over $250 million. Need help? We can provide as much or as little support as you need to plan a successful program.
