TUCSON, Ariz., Dec. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- On the heels of its successful $7 million online fundraising campaign on behalf of Nike and the Michael J. Fox Foundation, nonprofit fundraising platform RallyUp announced it has been selected as the technology partner for another high-profile nonprofit fundraising campaign, Nothing But Nets. In partnership with the United Nations Foundation and the Golden State Warriors, Nothing But Nets is a global campaign that helps families fight malaria by providing bed net essentials to areas that need them most.
"We're gratified to see our growing momentum as the technology provider of choice for these large global campaigns," commented RallyUp founder and CEO Steve Bernat. "Our proprietary platform was built to manage all aspects of this new generation of online fundraising campaigns, which require expertise in security and logistics involving hundreds of thousands of participants and infrastructure capable of managing all types of campaigns."
Since 2012, the United Nations Foundation has managed Nothing But Nets in partnership with Golden State Warriors point guard and two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry, who donates three malaria-prevention bed nets for every three-pointer he scores for the Warriors. To date, the Nothing But Nets initiative has raised more than $60 million.
The selection of RallyUp as the technology platform for the campaign comes in the wake of RallyUp's role as the technology provider behind Nike and the Michael J. Fox Foundation's highly publicized initiative in October that raised $7 million for Parkinson's Disease research. RallyUp was chosen for its comprehensive technology capabilities and expertise in innovative online fundraising formats.
RallyUp.com, founded by technology entrepreneur Steve Bernat, is a comprehensive fundraising platform for charitable organizations. From fundraising to donor and data management, RallyUp helps nonprofit organizations execute creative campaigns representing the next-generation of donor-involved giving.
