Woman Looking At Her Computer Happily After Making Online Donations To Her Favorite Cause.

New Feature Alert: Scripsense announces that organizations can now accept direct monetary donations through the “Donate Now” feature on the site! To make this feature available to you, please contact us at support@scripsense.com.

There are many ways to fundraise today and it can be difficult to determine what method is best for your organization. There are several positives to fundraising online. Below are 4 benefits that shed light on how online donations can really make a positive impact on your fundraising goals today:

  1. Around the Clock Fundraising

       Everyone is motivated by different situations when it comes to giving back to their community. For instance, when a natural disaster occurs that is a time when many come together. Everyone has busy schedules and they may not be able to make it to the onsite fundraising event that they want so badly to attend. Having an online donation feature on your site enables your members to donate at the time of their choosing and at a time that is financially best for them.

2. Simplicity of Options

      In our fast-paced world, we are frequently asked to make decisions on the spot. When it comes to ways to spend money or make purchases, these options are even greater, but it can be overwhelming. Giving your members the opportunity to avoid one less decision and simply donate to the positive cause of their choosing can increase their chances of participating and help simplify their life.

3. High Velocity, Low Touch

     After adding a donation feature to your organization’s site, it can handle a high volume of transactions and it will provide a savvy financial report for month’s end. Should your members have questions, they can contact support@scripsense.com for assistance! Your organization can continue to earn while you go about the rest of your day without concern.

4. Ease of Use and the Ability to Participate Quickly

     Reach your campaign goals faster by giving your members the opportunity to participate quickly and easily. Your members will likely have a deadline of when they need to reach their individual goals. Having an online donation feature available enables them to reach their goal at the push of a button.

Inspiring Hurricane Relief Helpers

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” -Fred Rogers 

Look for the helpers and you will find inspiring stories! Here are a few of our favorite tales of heroic American Red Cross helpers providing relief to those affected by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Harvey.

During Hurricane Irma, a 19 year old named Andrew Enos stepped up and managed an emergency shelter for 950 evacuees. The shelter was at North Miami High School and run through the American Red Cross. Working on 1.5 – 2 hours sleep to lead shelter efforts proved stressful for Enos, but very rewarding.

In addition to providing relief for Hurricane Irma, Enos volunteered at shelters in Texas to provide aid from Hurricane Harvey. Enos’ actions are heroic and inspire others to volunteer and give back to their communities! 

The American Red Cross responds to an emergency every 8 minutes, bringing help and hope to those affected by disasters. 95% of Red Cross disaster relief workers are volunteers. Their efforts are saving lives across the United States and Puerto Rico providing hurricane relief from Harvey, Irma and Maria.
