In September of 2022, the Colorado Gives 365 platform, including its hallmark event Colorado Gives Day, officially transitioned to be hosted in partnership with Mightycause.com. The Mightycause team worked extensively with the team at the Colorado Gives Foundation to carefully and securely migrate 10+ years of nonprofit and donor information to ensure a seamless transition for the over 3,000 organizations that rely on the platform, and the hundreds of thousands of donors who have made gifts over the years.
“After an extensive review, we transitioned to Mightycause as the technology and giving platform partner to power Colorado Gives 365. The key to our decision was the improved donor experience and the expanded full suite of features our nonprofit partners could leverage to drive their fundraising.”
-Erica Thornley, VP Product Development, Colorado Gives Foundation

The Mightycause team resolved over 1,300 tickets from nonprofits and donors during the week leading up to and including Colorado Gives, with an average of just over 2 hours reply time and over 90% satisfaction rating. With Mightycause team handling front line customer support, the team at the Colorado Gives Foundation was able to focus on engaging their community and celebrating the giving!
