Great River Rescue
Great River Rescue Surpassed their Fundraising Goals and Engaged More Supporters on GiveGab.
Great River Rescue is a nonprofit no-kill animals shelter located in Bemidji, Minnesota. They rescue upwards of 350 dogs and cats each year and they've helped over 10,000 animals since they first opened in 1977.
Brandon Mustful, Executive Director at Great River Rescue, shared his fundraising success story using GiveGab. Having used an alternative online fundraising platform in the past, Brandon revealed his increased success since making the switch!
Brandon was looking for a platform that was less confusing to use. He also said that other sites didn't offer donors the choice to cover their fees and he'd have to wait a month or more before transferring funds!
"I've found your platform much easier to use with a lot more support."
Brandon told us that the ease of use, quick technical support, and fun features (stickers, trophies, and all) are just some of the reasons he made the switch!
Regarding his favorite features on GiveGab: "The stickers and trophies- but that's just me."
We asked Brandon what his most positive experience was using GiveGab. "I set up a fundraising page to raise $400 for an animal in need and one donor gave us the full amount we needed!"
Regarding how GiveGab helped Great River Rescue overcome their prior challenges and reach their goals, Brandon said: "GiveGab makes fundraising more fun, gives me my donations quickly, and provides plenty of technical support."
"GiveGab helps us engage donors and volunteers and expand our volunteer services. We have more overall volunteer hours, more return volunteers, and more volunteers coming multiple times per month."
Compared to the alternatives, Brandon had this to say about what makes GiveGab different: "It's just easier to use, more fun, and I get a lot more help!"
When asked why he would recommened GiveGab to other nonprofits, Brandon said:
