Shout for Good Introduces Zero Commission Fees for Charities
8 November 2016 at 8:30 am
An online fundraising platform, Shout for Good, that integrates giving into the everyday, has announced it is removing all commission fees for its charity partners.
Since being acquired by ANZ in April 2015, Shout for Good has removed annual subscription costs and reduced its commission and payment fees, and has now furthered its commitment to assisting the not-for-profit sector by removing all commission fees.
Shout CEO and CTO Charlie Carpinteri said: “This is a fantastic day for the not-for-profit sector. Shout is now one of the most cost-effective platforms on the market and we are thrilled to be able to offer a comprehensive solution with very little cost to our charity partners.
“Shout has always strived to provide an innovative platform that is both useful and affordable for our charity partners, as well as people who donate via our website or app.”
Shout is part of ANZ’s broader strategy to connect people and communities to the causes they care about by providing seamless ways of giving and trusted fundraising solutions.
Shout was designed to maximise micro-donations, particularly with younger donors and those using mobile devices. Originally created by Jane Martino, founder of Smiling Mind, it was born from a deep understanding that small amounts have the potential to create new, more regular income streams for charities.
In 2017, Shout is evolving its strategy with emphasis on donations in a cashless world, both in person and online, as well as a new look website and updated APP.
“We have expanded our product offering so that we can cater to all businesses and organisations. From working with charity partners and sponsors to create simple donation opportunities, to large scale peer-to-peer promotions including SMS capability, we have created a user friendly online approach that is changing the way people give,” Carpinteri said.
