  • Network For Good State Portal Option Proposal

    1. 1. Proposed Cash Donations Option for State FEMA National Management System Portal October 18, 2007
    2. 2. Work Group’s request for presentation <ul><li>Network for Good has participated in the Cash Implementation Strategy meetings to share our experience with processing cash donations online. </li></ul><ul><li>The Work Group to Develop Suggested State Criteria has discussed implementation options for cash donations within the state portals. </li></ul><ul><li>This work group found that each state may have unique reporting and implementation needs and requested that Network for Good demonstrate how we could help facilitate these requests. </li></ul><ul><li>Please note that there would be no additional charge if a states chooses this option. </li></ul>
    3. 3. Why Network for Good? <ul><li>We are the Internet’s largest charitable resource, bringing together donors, volunteers and more than a million charities online to accomplish good. </li></ul><ul><li>We have processed over $145 million in donations for 25,000 nonprofits; a trusted source for cash donations online. </li></ul><ul><li>We meet the BBB Wise Giving Alliance’s standards for charity accountability which is of top concern and scrutiny during times of crisis. We are also registered in all states. </li></ul><ul><li>We are an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit donor advised fund headquartered in Bethesda, MD, founded in 2001 by AOL, Cisco Systems and Yahoo!. </li></ul>
    4. 4. What is Network for Good’s role in times of crisis? <ul><li>We are prepared to react . There is an “impulse effect” with cash donations online; it spikes and drops within a short, two- to six-day timeframe. Network for Good’s donation option is always ready to go. </li></ul><ul><li>We have record giving experience. Network for Good processed more than $13 million in donations to more than 300 organizations providing Hurricane Katrina relief and more than $11M in donations to 69 nonprofit organizations providing relief during the Tsunami. </li></ul><ul><li>We have reliable capacity . With an increasing proportion of cash donations handled online (half during Katrina up from one-fifth after 9/11); the ability to handle peak traffic is critical </li></ul><ul><ul><li>We comfortably handled more than 1,800 donations per hour– the equivalent to a donation every other second. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>On September 1, 2005 we had our busiest day ever, processing $3 million in donations in a single day. </li></ul></ul>
    5. 5. What the Network for Good option would look like <ul><li>As currently planned each state will have a cash donation portal page as defined by the committee. The name of the charity would link to that charity’s donation page on Network for Good. </li></ul>
    6. 6. How the donation page would look to donors <ul><li>Depending on how much the state would like the donation experience to look like the donation portal, the state can choose from one of these branding options: </li></ul><ul><li>Top banner Upper right corner of donation page None </li></ul>
    7. 7. How real time reporting can be useful <ul><li>Network for Good can provide the state the way to view the total amount of cash donations from the state portal in real-time. </li></ul><ul><li>The states could use this information as they see fit. Examples include: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>On a web site </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To track internally </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To share with the Governor’s office </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To share with media </li></ul></ul>
    8. 8. What the detail reporting could look like (optional) <ul><li>Network for Good can also provide a report to the state that includes: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Dollar amount generated through the portal </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Number of donations generated through the portal </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What charities are receiving donations and how much </li></ul></ul>
    9. 9. Other state requirements we can handle <ul><li>Network for Good handles the tax receipt and customer service related to cash donations </li></ul><ul><li>Network for Good gives donors the option to cover fees that are incurred with all online transaction; 80% of our donors choose cover the 4.75% fee so that 100% goes to charity </li></ul><ul><li>We make the donor information available to the charities which they can access and download online 24-7 </li></ul><ul><li>Advanced donation options for all charities </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Multiple payment options (credit card, online check and PayPal) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Automated recurring giving (monthly, quarterly, annually) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Donation history available to donors online </li></ul></ul>
