New York, NY, Sept. 9, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MicroEdge, LLC, the leading provider of solutions to the giving community worldwide, today announced the release of DonorCentral Mobile, a mobile version of its industry-leading online donor portal for community foundations. This release allows MicroEdge's community foundation clients to better support their donors' philanthropic efforts through 24/7 access to their donor account, even from their smartphone.
DonorCentral helps community foundations deliver superior service to their donors through a secure, online donor portal. Foundations can easily deliver relevant, personalized communications and funding opportunities to their donors in a streamlined fashion, while donors gain instant access to important fund and grantmaking information. DonorCentral also enables donors to better manage their philanthropic giving with the ability to make grant recommendations online for the causes they care about. DonorCentral is integrated with FIMS, the leading foundation management solution, for the ultimate level of convenience and efficiency. Currently, DonorCentral supports over 63,000 donors/advisors, and to date over $7.9 billion in grant suggestions have been made with the solution.
With the release of DonorCentral Mobile, community foundations can better support the evolving needs of their donors and the market - by 2015, more end users will access the Internet through a mobile device than a PC, according to a report from International Data Corporation. Through DonorCentral Mobile, donors can view information such as their fund balances, grants paid and pending, their spendable balance, and news from their community foundation. Plus, they can search for nonprofits, find relevant funding opportunities, and make grant suggestions - all from the palm of their hand.
"DonorCentral Mobile is an important release for our community foundation clients," said Charlie Vanek, MicroEdge's Vice President of Product & Business Development. "Individuals are increasingly relying on smartphone and mobile technology for their information needs. In addition, a younger generation of donors is emerging and becoming more involved in philanthropic giving. Providing mobile access has allowed us to evolve the DonorCentral solution in parallel with these trends. We're looking forward to helping our clients keep their donors more engaged, more often."
DonorCentral Mobile is available to all current DonorCentral clients at no charge. Organizations that are not currently using DonorCentral but are interested in learning more can visit www.microedge.com/donorcentral to learn about the capabilities available in the solution.
