GiveCampus Expands Leadership in Digital Fundraising for Education as EverTrue’s Exclusive Partner for Online Giving

Press Release (May 2020)

GiveCampus is now EverTrue’s exclusive partner for online giving and joins the EverTrue partner ecosystem which includes Facebook, Eventbrite, Windfall, Thankview, Graduway, Emma, Hustle, and other leading technology and data providers.

Washington, D.C. – May 20, 2020 – GiveCampus, the leading digital fundraising platform for  educational institutions, today announced that it has become EverTrue’s exclusive partner for online giving. This announcement solidifies GiveCampus’s leadership of the online giving market as it expands its community to nearly 1,000 colleges, universities, and K-12 schools. As part of the agreement between GiveCampus and EverTrue, EverTrue will terminate the maintenance, operation, and support of its online giving platform and transition customers using that platform to GiveCampus’s industry-leading online giving solution. Moving forward, EverTrue will exclusively recommend GiveCampus to its current and prospective customers.

“One new school transitions to GiveCampus’s best-in-class technology and partner success program every day,” said Kestrel Linder, co-founder and CEO of GiveCampus. “We are thrilled to welcome EverTrue’s customers to our community as we continue to accelerate our growth and make aggressive investments in the online giving space. For us, this partnership is an opportunity to help more schools fundraise more effectively and to deliver added value at a time when it is badly needed.”  

GiveCampus empowers donors to give in 30 seconds or less, easily set up and manage recurring gifts, and take advantage of corporate matches. The company designed its online giving solutions from the ground up specifically to meet the needs of educational institutions who want to make each philanthropic interaction meaningful and seamless for donors. On top of its software, GiveCampus’s world-class partner success program will provide transitioning EverTrue customers with ongoing strategic fundraising guidance and access to a vibrant community of forward-thinking fundraisers. As GiveCampus’s community grows, existing GiveCampus partner institutions will have access to an even larger network of peers for knowledge-sharing and best practices.

“Since partnering with GiveCampus four years ago, we have seen significant increases in donor conversion rates and online giving, as well as made important strides in strengthening our young alumni participation,” said Tracy Barlok, Vice President of Advancement at College of the Holy Cross. “It’s not surprising to see GiveCampus leading the field. They listen to their partner institutions, identify key trends in donor and volunteer behavior as they emerge, and provide products and services that deliver real, measurable value and exceed expectations. I am confident that EverTrue’s customers will quickly feel as proud to work with GiveCampus as we are.”

Over the last five years, GiveCampus has facilitated almost $1 billion in charitable giving to nearly 1,000 colleges, universities, and K-12 schools in 47 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, and eight foreign countries. Since early March, schools using the GiveCampus platform have raised more than $20 million for COVID-19 related campaigns. The company was founded in late 2014 and has quickly become one of Washington, D.C.’s fastest growing technology companies.

GiveCampus is now EverTrue’s exclusive partner for online giving and joins the EverTrue partner ecosystem which includes Facebook, Eventbrite, Windfall, Thankview, Graduway, Emma, Hustle, and other leading technology and data providers. 

GiveCampus offers a variety of products and services that meet the needs of the modern fundraiser: The Social Fundraising Platform, Giving Forms by GiveCampus, and GC Connect help schools of all sizes extend their reach and maximize their fundraising impact. The company plans to release its fifth product this month. All GiveCampus products and services help schools raise more money from more donors at a fraction of the cost of other fundraising methods. 

EverTrue will continue to offer its Relationship Management platform, the leading mobile portfolio management and trip-planning solution for major gift teams, and its foundational EverTrue Platform featuring TrueView profiles powered by continually refreshed data. EverTrue’s software helps advancement teams better understand alumni, parents, and friends, leading to more effective and personal donor engagement, acquisition, and retention. The companies will continue to exist as independent entities.

“GiveCampus has established itself as the clear market leader in online giving. As we continue to guide our customers away from ‘all-in-one’ legacy solutions toward an integrated, best-in-class advancement technology stack, it became clear that aligning our efforts with GiveCampus would accelerate our mission to build relationships that advance higher education fundraising,” said Brent Grinna, founder and CEO of EverTrue. “Connecting EverTrue customers with GiveCampus’s online giving technology will unlock enormous fundraising value and help schools move the needle in a meaningful way at a critical moment.”
