Recognizing Donors in Real Time at 2021 Person of Vision
What’s the best way to capitalize on donor recognition at a live function?
Take a page from vision and eye health nonprofit Prevent Blindness whose recent Person of Vision event incorporated Engage by Cell’s mobile technology.
Leadership decided to try something new and different: a mobile donation platform and fundraising thermometer. Standing below a large screen displaying the digital thermometer, Prevent Blindness Board of Directors Chair Dr. Kathleen Murphy announced the call to action and explained how attendees could donate using their phone.
People texted-in their pledge and could immediately see their name and donation on the screen.
"We specifically wanted the thermometer screencast to recognize those who gave and to create the visual excitement toward reaching the goal.” — Kate Desulis, Director of Development, Prevent Blindness
With Engage by Cell’s mobile donate service, people can access the donation page by sending a text, scanning a QR code, or clicking on a link. Donations are made by credit card, PayPal, Apple Pay, and several other payment methods. Plus, Engage by Cell takes no percentage of the donations.
At a live event, donations can be projected onto a screen as a digital thermometer rises in real time.
With so many fundraising platforms on the web, what made Prevent Blindness choose us?
We chose Engage by Cell because the technology was easy to operate and they offered great customer service.” — Kate Desulis, Director of Development, Prevent Blindness
For more than 100 years, Prevent Blindness has championed healthy vision through advocacy, vision screening programs, research, and much more. More than 1.1 million people received direct eye health services from the efforts of Prevent Blindness during the 2020-2021 fiscal year.
Prevent Blindness will participate in World Sight Day, October 14, to bring awareness to the global issue of eye health. Leadership invites everyone to take these three steps:
1. For Yourself: Schedule an eye exam
2. For Others: Donate to Prevent Blindness
3. For Your Community: Ask your member of congress to support vision and eye health policies
