SimpliGiv Streamlines Giving for Indianapolis Coca-Cola, Lids Inc., Other Leading Businesses and Nonprofits

PR Newswire — April 18, 2017

INDIANAPOLIS, April 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — SimpliGiv LLC today announced the
availability and early adoption of its low-cost service that allows businesses
to donate items to nonprofits with ease, and a free service for nonprofits to
boost their auction fundraising.

Anyone who has been involved in donating or gathering item donations for
fundraising, whether with a business or nonprofit, knows that it can be
complicated, lengthy, and a significant drain on resources. Repeated calls,
emails, and all the other back and forth between parties add to the difficulty
and do nothing to advance giving or to achieve fundraising goals.

SimpliGiv smooths the whole process and saves substantial time and resources for
everyone involved.

A donating business simply registers on the site, lists the items they wish to
make available, enters criteria for nonprofit qualification and selection, and
then selects a best-match nonprofit fundraising event for the donation.

SimpliGiv handles all the details, including essential communications between
parties, and dynamic reporting for accounting, tax, and general management

“I am excited to see this technology launch. We anticipate this will help our
business streamline our giving process so we can continue to support
organizations without taking my team out of production, and to track everything
in real time,” said Jimmy Myers of Indianapolis Coca-Cola.

“Why wouldn’t we do this?! SimpliGiv will save us time, so we can give more to
those organizations that fit our mission,” remarked Jeff Person of national
retailer Lids, Inc.

SimpliGiv is not just for large companies and nonprofits. Any organization that
wants to donate items to nonprofits of any size can take advantage of the
service. Ease of use, low cost, and clear benefits are creating excitement in
businesses of all sizes.

Jason Harris of MaxLife Chiropractic said, “I am looking forward to utilizing
the SimpliGiv software. As a small business owner, this will allow me to better
organize my giving so I can support all of the causes that are close to myself
and my team.”

“I am looking forward to having another tool to use to secure auction items.
Even if we receive one or two items it’s a huge help,” said Beth Gehlhausen of
Meals on Wheels of Hamilton County.

The service allows businesses to register with a free 30-Day Trial, followed by
a low monthly commitment.

For registered nonprofits, SimpliGiv allows free use. Listing and publicizing
donation needs for fundraising events such as auctions–including all the
characteristics of the event: timing, item criteria, and other details–will
make sure donations are well-suited to the audience and available on time.

Nonprofits will enjoy more and better quality donations as a result.

Jill Bennett of Indiana Chapter of ALS said, “In previous years, our volunteers
and board members spent most of their time soliciting auction items. We are
excited to use a new technology where we can save time for other needs.”

The service was built to be easily accessible, intuitive, and comprehensive,
from registration through the successful delivery of donated items.

“We built SimpliGiv to provide businesses a big advantage in managing item
donations to nonprofits, and to give the nonprofit fundraising world a powerful
new way to improve their results. For too long, the whole process has consumed
too much time and effort on both sides,” said Steve Rosen, Founder and President
of SimpliGiv.

SimpliGiv is available now for any organization looking to make giving or
receiving item donations easier, more efficient, and more rewarding.
