Enables Events to Effortlessly Include Philanthropy and Fundraising
San Francisco, CA (April 19, 2016) – Eventbrite, the world’s largest self–service ticketing and registration platform, today announced its integration with everydayhero™, a Blackbaud, Inc. (NASDAQ: BLKB) company and innovative crowdfundraising platform, empowering events with peer-to-peer fundraising opportunities.
Everydayhero’s mission has always been to make giving easier, more accessible and more enjoyable for people who want to help the charities and causes they care about. The everydayhero and Eventbrite collaboration is the next step in this journey, as it will empower thousands of event organizers to seamlessly offer online peer-to-peer fundraising as part of their event for one or more nonprofit beneficiaries. This will mean that event participants can instantly create an everydayhero fundraising page during event registration and immediately begin collecting donations from friends and family.
“With everydayhero fundraising you can seamlessly add a peer-to-peer fundraising campaign to your event, allowing your participants to utilize this key opportunity and enhance their fundraising efforts,” said Charlie Cumbaa, executive vice president of Corporate Product Strategy at Blackbaud. “As a result, you build more participant loyalty, create more event awareness, and increase the positive impact of your event on the community every time a participant shares their page.”
“Events are an incredibly effective way to raise money and awareness for a cause,” said Dylan Serota, head of Platform at Eventbrite. “With the seamless integration of everydayhero, our customers will have access to powerful capabilities that will turn their attendees into a fundraising flywheel.”
Event fundraising has long been used as a means for charities to raise important funds and awareness for their cause. The everydayhero integration with Eventbrite brings together two leading event technologies and provides a seamless, simple, delightful experience for organizers, charities, participants and donors. Integrating Eventbrite underscores the company’s commitment to make charitable giving easier, more enjoyable and a part of people’s everyday lives.
