Australian surfing champion Mick Fanning has jumped on board as the first patron of Enablr – the soon-to-launch online fundraising platform for Not for Profits and charities.
Founder and CEO Enablr Chris Mulcahy has welcomed Fanning, saying “he is a legend both in and out of the water and an all-round great bloke. His passion and dedication in sport are traits he lives by in daily life, making him an inspiration to many”.
Enablr is set to launch in April and is designed to empower both donors, and charity and Not for Profit organisations. It provides them with a new innovative platform that does not charge establishment, management or data access fees. The ultimate mission is to enable the ethical and transparent connection of these parties to ensure donations are delivered to their rightful destination without exorbitant commissions being collected along the way.
The Enablr team recently met with Mick where he stated that he is “honoured to be involved with Enablr and the great work this platform will deliver. This is a fundraising solution able to help over 54,000 charities”.
Enablr has been endorsed by the Assistant Commissioner of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission. David Locke voiced his support for the platform by saying “the ACNC is excited to see digital innovation come to the online fundraising space through the launch of Enablr. We hope it will provide charities with a new and exciting way to connect with donors to support t the work of this important sector”.
To celebrate its launch, Enablr has negotiated a deal with the professional video production company, BIG Review TV, for a $48,000 video package to be offered to the Not for Profit sector at a greatly reduced rate of $15,000.
The package includes:
- 20 x videos to be produced over a 12 month period (so that the charity’s content remains current)
- creative direction from Blake McIntyre, the filmmaker behind Tourism Australia’s latest campaign
- a flexible payment plan
- creation of a YouTube Brand Channel for a charity to house its video content.
The package is risk free; pay only for the video you approve of and use on your website, in your e-mails etc.
Enablr is offering 300 packages to the 55,194 charities registered with the ACNC.
