United Way StratusLIVE Ignite Selection
United Way of Greater Houston joins a growing list of top United Ways adopting StratusLIVE technology to expand their online giving initiatives
StratusLIVE is proud to announce that United Way of Greater Houston selected StratusLIVE Ignite to engage their corporate partners and expand their online giving efforts with a modern, intuitive platform to fuel social investment.
VIRGINIA BEACH, VA (Feb. 16, 2022), StratusLIVE is proud to share that United Way of Greater Houston has selected StratusLIVE Ignite to facilitate their workplace giving campaigns and inspire individual giving.
Last year, United Way of Greater Houston began the search for an integrated, online, corporate giving platform that would allow donors and partners to more efficiently have an impact in the community they care about. Their goal was to find an easy-to-use, comprehensive, and fully customizable electronic pledging solution. The new StratusLIVE platform will replace United Way of Greater Houston's legacy system, E-Pledge.
“Our corporate partners look to us as a community resource to apply their employees’ talents and resources in the most effective ways. We now have a platform that is fully customizable to a company’s philanthropic needs while making it easier for donors to navigate and engage,” said Dr. Angel Harris, chief advancement officer. “The new platform can accommodate seasonal and year-round giving in addition to corporate matching and volunteer engagement efforts. We are excited to say that we already have a number of major organizations that have signed on to use the new platform and we are looking forward to our market rollout this month.”
United Way of Greater Houston will offer corporate partners the opportunity to transition their employee giving campaigns to the StratusLIVE Ignite CSR platform. United Way will manage the site and local support. Companies interested in learning more can contact email@example.com.
In 2021, more United Ways than ever before are choosing StratusLIVE to advance the Corporate Social Responsibility goals of their corporate partners and modernize their fundraising efforts. “As a company, we are committed to keeping United Ways competitive and strong in their local regions,” said Jim Funari, StratusLIVE CEO. “We are thrilled to support United Way of Greater Houston as they expand upon their 100-year history supporting their community.”
