Instant payments for charitable initiatives

Instant payments for charitable initiatives

The Verse application allows making payments and appeals to donors in the time it takes to send an SMS. Some NGOs and non-profits are already using it.

Make a donation as if you were sending an SMS. That is the ultimate aim of the Verse App, a new application which lets you make quick payments and without any fees. In line with this, Verse has collaborated with charitable initiatives and aims to promote the use of the application in non-profit organisations. For example, all proceeds from the launch party of Verse Events were donated to the CEAR organisation, which protects the rights of refugees and leads social awareness campaigns.

Verse is free to download, and simple to use. The first step is creating an account - register with your mobile number and link the account with your credit card in order to send money to any of your contacts. After that, you can send or request money by simply entering the recipient's mobile number. The accumulated balance on Verse can be transferred directly to their bank account. Additionally, Verse donates €5 for each new user that registers on the application and makes their first donation.

Along with online donations, the app can also be used to create events and split expenses. Organisations like the Turkana Eye ProjectNeed Ü and the Pedriatic Cancer Center project have already used the platform to promote their activities. For more information about what they do, check the Verse blog

Do you know the global trends in donations for 2017?

Do you know the global trends in donations for 2017?

The 2017 Report on Global Trends in Donations has collected responses from more than 4,000 donors and provides data on the status of donations on the internet at an international level.

4,084 donors in 95 countries have responded to the 2017 Report on Global Trends in Donations. The paper, put together by Nonprofit Tech for Good and sponsored by the Public Interest Registry, provides data indicating that most donors are from wealthy countries, and the majority are women of all ages, with a liberal ideological bent. Though many NGOs and non-profit organizations are working in developing countries, limited internet access makes it difficult to get online and mobile donations. 

Most donors belong to the Baby Boomer generation (1946-1964) and the Unites States leads in donations. Children and young people are the themes that most incite donors to give money. 61% of donors are most inspired around Christmas or holidays, and 45% give to NGOs outside their country of residence. The main countries where the donations go are India, Syria, Kenya, Haiti and Israel.
 
One noteworthy fact is that 61% of donors prefer to donate online, and 82% do so on a monthly basis. Facebook stands as the social network that most inspires donors, as it attracts 62% of them. Social media and fundraising events also inspire more donors around the world. It is also true that 66% of donors have already worked as volunteers for a non-profit organization.
 
With respect to technology, the report indicates that having a dot org (.org) domain reinforces trust in organization’s online brand so that donors decide to contribute their grain of sand. However, donor confidence is high, with 9 out of 10 thinking that NGOs are ethical and dignified.
 
With regard to demographic data, there are almost three times more women donors than men: 2,954 women to 1,074 men. The report also highlights trends in donations by geographic area: Africa, Asia, Australia and Oceania, North America and South America. The partners who collaborated in the preparation of the report are Canadahelps.org, Everydayhero, and Network for Good. If you want to download the report, you can do so through the following link. Just enter your information and you can download a free document in PDF format.
