When Your Non-Profit Outgrows The Paypal Button

This month’s spotlight shines the light on a company local to us here in Sacramento. A city, which of course, has recently made headlines with a particular phenomenal feature-length film. Something about a woman and poultry.

While our office is in a dense metropolitan area, there is a neighborhood 12 minutes from us that is teeming with life and culture. Our friends at City of Refuge Sacramento spend all their time cultivating a community that transforms and empowers broken lives through the truth of God’s love seen in acts of Justice, Mercy, and Humility.

And they do a good job too.

They are doing such a good job that their organization began to grow and grow. They soon realized they needed to expand beyond the bare essential fundraising methods they started with. They encountered the all too familiar problem facing most non-profits shortly after starting up.

What do you do when your organization outgrows the simple PayPal donate button?

Their giving got more specific, their donor requirements more detailed, and their integrations more important. On top of that, they realized how events were central to increasing their overall budget.

City of Refuge talks about their great work which is enabled by a better system that meets their growth needs to handle a variety of giving campaigns and fundraising events. Listen to their words as they share how they are now raising more and doing more.
