FrontStream Creates Big Opportunities for Charities and Corporate Philanthropists
(Press release, March 19, 2015) — FrontStream has announced the release of a platform integration that now offers a complete range of tools for CSR teams to offer their employees in their philanthropic efforts. This enables businesses to develop more impactful social responsibility and employee engagement programs by giving employee donors the ability to set up fundraising campaigns for any of the nearly 2 million nonprofit organizations in the U.S. and Canada.
FrontStream is a fully integrated fundraising and philanthropy solutions provider that serves over 20,000 nonprofit organizations and nearly 500 major corporations around the world. With a well-established presence in both the corporate and charitable sectors, FrontStream has taken steps to connect the two verticals by building a native connection between their workplace giving solutions and peer-to-peer fundraising platform.
FrontStream is the first company to combine employee giving, volunteerism, matching, donor management through a robust CRM and fundraising as a unified platform and the platform integration represents the genesis of this revolutionary move in the world of philanthropy. The integration takes full advantage of FrontStream’s unique position in the market as the provider that sits at the intersection between commerce and philanthropy and offers the most comprehensive set of integrated data solutions for all of its constituents; nonprofits, corporations and individual donors and fundraisers.
Better for Employees
With this enhancement, any employee is now able to create a personal fundraising page for any registered nonprofit in the U.S. or Canada and their fundraising page will be added to an internal database of campaigns that other employees have the ability to donate directly to. Employees also have the ability to register for fundraising events and use built-in social tools to fundraise for causes they are passionate about. Not only does this extend their fundraising efforts beyond the workplace into their personal network but also gives them the opportunity to incorporate their personal passion into their daily work. Fundraisers can make independent and well-informed choices and give to credible nonprofit organizations whose mission reflects the values of individual employees.
