Fort Collins, Co, September 22, 2020 — Community Funded today announces a partnership with Gipper, the leading social media graphics creation platform for schools. This is one of several Community Funded partnerships that provide clients with best-in-class fundraising, networking, and marketing technologies. This most recent partnership with Gipper provides Community Funded clients with an easy way to maximize their use of social media in the fundraising process and further establishes Community Funded as the market leader in the digital fundraising space.
“Fundraising is even more critical as organizations navigate the unexpected and unpredictable financial situation caused by the pandemic. During a time marked by physical separation, institutions need to find creative ways to connect with donors and potential donors,” said Lauren DeSalvo, VP of Marketing at Community Funded. “This requires a strong omni-channel fundraising strategy with a consistent and high-quality approach to social media.”
The use of Gipper by schools has been shown to increase social media engagement by up to 18X and their visual content can generate up to 40X more shares than text-based posts, often favored by schools. The combination of Community Funded and Gipper, in tandem, is poised to increase the standard by which social media is viewed as an essential tool for driving donor engagement and dollars.
“Schools are leaving money on the table by not properly leveraging social media for fundraising purposes,” said Gipper CEO, Matthew Glick. “Most schools feel like they don’t have the time or resources. Gipper is a tool built to tackle that challenge. Our easy-to-use platform enables anyone at a school to create and share compelling content to social media in just seconds. We’re excited to partner with Community Funded to help more schools increase engagement and fundraising via social.”
