What Your Organization Receives:
- Customized Greeks for Good website
Greeks for Good is powered by DonorDrive, a powerful peer-to-peer fundraising solution that makes raising money for a cause simple. The DonorDrive fundraising software is embedded into a customized website for your organization. This website is tailored to your organization’s brand and becomes the go-to-place for your members to raise funds for your foundation and charity partner.
Your Greeks for Good platform can be setup to allocate dollars raised to your foundation and charity partner(s). For example:
- 50% of funds raised benefit your foundation
- 50% of funds raised benefit your charity partner
- Self-guided philanthropy curriculum
Greeks for Good participants receive educational emails as they are fundraising that teach them about philanthropy. When your organization participates, it has the ability to customize the curriculum. See the curriculum topics. For example, participants could receive an email that discusses what your foundation does and the importance of giving to it. We'll also challenge each participant to make a gift to your foundation along the way. Many of these gifts will be from first time donors.
