The Generosity Network, a new fundraising group, has launched with its first client, the National Transplant Assistance Fund (NTAF).
Based in Charlotte, Generosity Network provides online donation processing services for nonprofit organizations to help them use the Internet in their fundraising efforts.
The company was founded in 2003 by Corey Miller, Jason Walle and Brian Moran. After a year of refining the company’s Gift Trust product, the three took it to market in February.
NTAF became the first client after researching other options nationwide. The Philadelphia-based group, which has been in existence for more than 20 years, raised over $12,000 in just over two weeks of being online with Generosity Network without any outside marketing.
“The team at Generosity Network was absolutely terrific in helping our non-profit establish secure online donation capabilities. They led us through the process step-by-step so that all of us — are now completely comfortable in our new endeavor,” said Judy Walker, NTAF marketing director. “–We’re very pleased with the early success and we’re expecting great things as we start to spread the word about the new, convenient donation option.”
Generosity Network’s founders already have some experience in Charlotte’s online community. Miller, Walle and Moran also work for E-dreamz, one of the area’s interactive design and development firms.
Miller, who is vice president and a partner at E-dreamz, says he had the idea for Generosity Network after realizing a need for an affordable and secure online method of fundraising and turned to his co-workers for help.
“At E-dreamz, we build complex content management and commerce systems all the time. Over the years we’ve learned the best way to do things, the best payment processors to work with, etc,” said Miller. “We also know what it costs to build these types of solutions for individual clients. E-dreamz has been in business for five years, which is quite an accomplishment in this industry. We’ve been fortunate and this is a way for us give back a little by helping nonprofits raise money with a reliable, cost effective solution.”
