I founded EverTrue in 2010 after spending many hours serving as a volunteer for my alma mater. I didn’t know where it would lead, but I believed that there was an opportunity to bring new technology to advancement given the rapidly changing mobile and social landscape.
We planted our flag in the Boston startup community and participated in TechStars, MassChallenge and we made the Innovation District our home. We’re excited to be working with over 100 leading schools and colleges and we’re grateful for the support and constructive feedback you’ve provided us along the way.
But we’ve got a long way to go if we’re going to solve some of the big challenges in advancement. We need to further develop our platform and build our account management and support teams.
I’m excited to announce that EverTrue is partnering with Bain Capital Ventures in a new round of funding. This means we’ll be able to further invest in our vision to reimagine education fundraising.
Here are a few of the reasons we’re thrilled to be working with Bain.
1) They understand data. Bain Capital Ventures invested in LinkedIn prior to its IPO. They understand why we’re so excited about the potential for platforms like LinkedIn to power the next generation of non-profit fundraising technology.
2) They demand excellence. We are united in our vision to build a company that offers both quality products and amazing customer service.
3) They’re volunteers, too. Bain Partner Mike Krupka is joining our board. Mike has been a long-time volunteer and class fundraiser for his alma mater, Dartmouth College. Like us, Mike is passionate about utilizing new technology to create new opportunities in advancement.
I’d like to offer a special thank you to my team members at EverTrue. They have each taken a chance on me and they are investing their careers in helping you accomplish your goals. We have many more questions than answers, but I’m hopeful that with continued collaboration between your teams and ours, we can build something special.
Please reach out to me any time at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions, concerns or ideas for the future.
