Network for Good Announces Partnership with Constant Contact to Benefit Nonprofits

Partnership offers nonprofit organizations the most effective and affordable online donation service with an integrated email marketing tool to build stronger donor relationships

WASHINGTON, DC – OCTOBER 3, 2013 – Today, Network for Good, the leading provider of digital fundraising tools for small- to medium-sized nonprofits, announced a technology partnership with Constant Contact®, Inc. (NASDAQ: CTCT) to offer nonprofits a seamless integration between DonateNow, Network for Good’s easy and affordable online fundraising tool, and Constant Contact’s email marketing tool. The new integration brings two critical tools together to give nonprofits a one-stop shop for creating, promoting, and managing fundraising campaigns.

“I’m excited to offer DonateNow with Constant Contact,” said Bill Strathmann, CEO of Network for Good. “Now we can bring this integrated service to nonprofits who deserve best-of-breed technology for their causes.”

Combining DonateNow’s online fundraising best practices with Constant Contact’s email marketing tool and expertise lets nonprofits easily connect with their supporters and inspire recurring giving. The integration will provide seamless contact management between the two tools. Donors can now join a nonprofit’s Constant Contact email list right from the DonateNow donation page and nonprofits can create segmented email lists based on their different DonateNow pages and sync them directly to Constant Contact.

Made possible through Constant Contact’s AppConnect® Program and Development Platform, which includes easy-to-use, open APIs that help developers quickly create and market meaningful third-party applications, the integration also gives nonprofits access to Constant Contact’s full set of email services, including free award-winning support, personalized coaching, and analytical tools to measure campaign results.

“We look for integration partners who bring real value to our customers. Given that we work with more than 100,000 nonprofits, Network for Good’s commitment to nonprofit success coupled with its DonateNow tool and focus on best practices made it an obvious fit with Constant Contact,” said Joel Hughes, senior vice president, strategy and emerging businesses, Constant Contact. “We’re confident that by combining online fundraising and email marketing, our nonprofit customers will be able to create even more efficient and effective fundraising campaigns.”

“Constant Contact’s email marketing and DonateNow are two of the most essential tools we have for fundraising,” said Jennifer Hartwell, associate director of volunteers and communications at Hearth, a Boston-area nonprofit dedicated to ending elder homelessness. “I love that this integration will let donors join our Constant Contact mailing lists directly from our DonateNow donation pages. This will go a long way in helping us grow our mailing lists. Plus, being able to sync our donor lists from DonateNow to Constant Contact will help us send targeted marketing messages that we feel resonate with our supporters. For an organization with limited time and resources, this integration is incredibly meaningful.”
