Posiba partners with GreatNonprofits to expand reach of crowdsourced intelligence

SAN DIEGO, CALIF., Sept. 21, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Posiba, an information service for the social sector, today announced that givn, its web/mobile social sharing app will incorporate additional information from GreatNonprofits, the leading platform for crowdsourced stories and reviews about nonprofits—often referred to as the "Yelp" or "TripAdvisor" of the sector. By putting the givn plugin on their Thank You page, nonprofits provide donors with a fun, easy way to instantly let friends across social networks know about contributions and spark others to join in. The givn app lets donors track results and watch their influence grow, while keeping an ongoing journal of all contributions to any number of nonprofits. Now, with the incorporation of two-way information flow with GreatNonprofits, givn users will also be able to see the latest reviews/ratings of nonprofits and post their own—immediately appearing on both platforms.

"By partnering with GreatNonprofits, we're extending crowdsourced review and ratings activity through the givn platform. It's one more way for donors to create influence and make a bigger difference for the causes they care about," said Elizabeth Dreicer, CEO and founder of Posiba.

"GreatNonprofits is excited about this opportunity to deliver crowdsourced intelligence to donors at the point of decision," said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits. "We want to make this information very easily available to donors, so it makes sense to put it inside apps people are using to track donations and spread word across social networks."

The information flow between givn and GreatNonprofits is achieved through a bi-directional API (application programming interface). This software bridge between the parties' respective platforms allows information created on one platform to be instantly available on the other, for the mutual benefit of both organizations and their thousands of users. The partnership will also allow the two companies to build market reach and awareness among donors and nonprofits, as well as demonstrate data sharing between partners in a visible, transparent manner.
