How old is CommitChange and how many nonprofits do you serve?
CommitChange began building and deploying software for nonprofits in 2013 and was initially founded in Olympia, Washington. Although our beginnings were very humble, today the CommitChange fundraising platform serves hundreds of charitable and social venture organizations throughout the United States and is growing quickly. Our biggest milestones were launching the first improved donation form, receiving seed capital investment, finishing our campaign and event features, and most recently launching an overhauled donor management system that includes a highly integrated database.
What is the long-term objective of the organization?
Developing fundraising and donor-enrichment software for nonprofits is the primary objective of CommitChange, but education and advocacy are also critical in order to amplify the impact of social impact causes. This work will involve continuing to test and improve existing fundraising features while also interfacing with nonprofit leaders to identify and address pressing needs and gaps. Additionally, our team will expand educational programs to help development and other leadership staff make smart decisions about software and technology.
Why are investors supporting CommitChange?
Our platform is forward-thinking in an antiquated, and surprisingly large, nonprofit software and fundraising market. The early success of CommitChange indicated to investors that it’s possible to advance the fundraising technology industry through better services and more ethical business structure.
