The world of charitable giving is incredibly complex for people who want to either establish some long-term support for a nonprofit organization or simply make one donation. OrgHunter unravels that complexity for you.
We have identified two core business problems linked to a $396 billion annual charitable giving market in the United States. The first being the explosive adoption of mobile technology and number of mobile application developers entering the philanthropic fundraising space with ground breaking ideas on simplifying the donation process and engaging donors like never before. Some of these concepts include gaming, roundups, sporting events and access to people’s time all in the spirit of raising money for a donor’s favorite cause or charity and serving the needs of the next generation of donors. This business problem has been validated as a result of over 300 technology companies registering to consume our charitable database and grant processing capabilities.
The second business problem is related to the decline in newspaper circulation and readership which has significantly driven up the cost to post meaningful obituaries in the newspaper. Newspaper obituaries are now being replaced with links to the funeral homes websites, where family and friends can read the full obituary and obtain details on a loved ones service arrangements. This trend has driven funeral website traffic into big online business, specifically in online flower sales and new revenue for funeral directors. Funeral homes websites are now responsible for informing its visitors on the family’s wishes for memorial donations and charitable contributions. The shift to online obituaries has created an immediate demand for real-time vetted and reliable charitable data, donation processing and state compliance related to fundraising online on funeral home websites. This business problem has become more evident as a result of 125 funeral homes adopting our In Memory of Platform supporting memorial donations.
OrgHunter.com offers comprehensive data and charity vetting on 2.2 million charities in the United States, along with grant processing to 1.5 million eligible organizations and finally, compliance in all states that require registration related to online charitable fundraising. Our platform has successfully solved this business problem for over application developers and 125 funeral homes during our early stage launch in 2016-2017.
