Network Solutions Launches New Program for Nonprofits and Charities
Press release (Oct. 25, 2011) — Network Solutions, in partnership with MyRegistry.com, has launched a new and innovative program for nonprofit and charitable organizations. The Network Solutions Nonprofit Program helps nonprofits leverage online and mobile technology to increase online giving, achieve greater donor reach, and leverage their websites, social media networks, and existing marketing channels to benefit their causes. The Network Solutions Nonprofit Program is powered by MyRegistry.com and has been in beta test since April and currently supports more than 150 enrolled nonprofits.
“Our products and services have always helped small businesses use technology to succeed online and now we’ve applied this same philosophy to benefit small to medium sized nonprofits,” said Harry Lalor, Vice President of Business Development at Network Solutions.
“Implementing the Network Solutions Nonprofit program has helped Toys for Joy expand our reach to donors, clearly communicate specific goods desired on our website, and enabled us to leverage social media to further message our need,” said Michele Kassa, Event Director of Toys for Joy.
Toys for Joy is using the Network Solutions Nonprofit program to kick off its annual holiday toy, food, and clothing drive to deliver over 10,000 toys and 60,000 pounds of food to San Diego, CA families in need.
MyRegistry.com provides a unique feature to the Network Solutions Nonprofit Program: an online “wish list” which increases in-kind donations for particular needs of any nonprofit. Specific items are purchased right off of a customized wish list and shipped directly to the nonprofit organization. The wish list feature of the Network Solutions Nonprofit program gives the donor complete control and visibility into how in-kind donations are being used.
To see how the wish list is being used by Toys for Joy or to donate to this year’s holiday event, visit http://www.toys-for-joy.org/toy-registry.
