  • Hey Richard - Apparently the images on that slide didn't upload. It should have shown two micro-donation apps, One Today from Google and Give2Charity from Placed. Slide 15 is intentionally just a question mark. The reality is that there are few, if any, success stories when it comes to using native mobile apps for donations. This is due largely to their cost of development and maintenance but also because they don't really capitalize on the impulse to give (there are lots of steps to take). Finally, Apple doesn't allow in-app donations at all and Google Play will take 30% off the top of any in-app donation/purchase. If you want to use mobile for donations we recommend where you can start a text-to-donate campaign.

  • Useful, thanks for sharing.

    I'm interested in slides 14 and 15 here - i.e. what happened to them? Or is the point you were trying to make just that there are no good case studies of fundraising mobile apps from charities?
