28 May New Charitable Giving Experience
It is our commitment to our donors, volunteers and other stakeholders to continually improve your experience with New Hope and to make your impact more meaningful to you. With this in mind and in an effort to improve our online donation process, we’ve begun using Network for Good’s online giving platform. Network for Good is a reputable company which you’ve probably used before without even realizing it. Even Facebook’s charitable giving is filtered through Network for Good. As for your experience as a New Hope donor, it really shouldn’t change much. You can still donate in all the same ways – cash, check, credit card; via the mail, in-person or online; by pledge, recurring donations or one-time gifts. Besides the online giving page looking a little different, you might notice these changes to the online giving process:
-You’ll be asked to choose where to apply your donation (to Our Biggest Need or a specific initiative).
-You can choose to write a public note about your gift and to be recognized by name or anonymously.
-You can choose to honor or memorialize someone with your gift.
-You’ll be able to create a password to streamline the giving process in the future.
In addition to online donations, Network for Good will also help us streamline our communication. Beginning this summer, the Heartbeat and other email messages will be sent through Network for Good and might look a little different. We hope that this system will also help us maintain your contact information more effectively. To help us get started with this, we would love for you to sign up through our new contact form. While you should continue to receive our communications whether or not you fill out this form, providing your information in this way will help us communicate more effectively.
We hope that all of these changes will be intuitive and beneficial for you and will be of help to us as well. If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Stone, Manager of Development and Communications.
