Mobile Fundraising

Helping our charities with Mobile Fundraising is ZipGive's number one priority. ZipGive is a division of Zipstripe. Zipstripe is a Canadian mobile marketing solutions company based in Toronto with rapidly expanding reach encompassing North America. For over 3 years, we have been connecting consumers to Canada's leading brands. Our clients depend on us to provide the kind of strategic thinking that mobilizes action, increases response and enhances sales. Our consistent creative execution delivers measurable results that build momentum and market share.

Zipstripe has worked with non-profit clients since January 2009 before the MGF platform was available in Canada. We are the pioneers and first company in Canada to run a Charitable Alerts program to raise funds through texting and mobile fundraising. Our platform makes it easy for your organization to sign up, create your campaign with keyword and shared short code, and track all activity in real-time. Additionally, we have state of the art online tools that allow you to build and integrate with networking programs that allow for donations to be collected via cell phone bill and to get the word out about your organization through viral mobile fundraising and web based campaigns.

Mobile Fundraising made Fun

Mobile Fundraising has made text messaging a good thing!

Working closely with non-profit organizations in the past, Zipstripe has recently collaborated with The Mobile Giving Foundation of Canada(MGF-C) to launch mobile fundraising and text message charitable donations in Canada.

Now ZipGive makes it fast and easy for cell phone users to securely send $5 or $10 donations to specific charities, simply by sending a text message with a unique keyword (eg. AIDS or HEART). A confirmation message is received almost immediately asking for confirmation and a "Yes" reply. A final message is then received thanking the donor for the contribution. At the end of the month, the donation is applied to the user's wireless phone bill. The Mobile Giving Foundation then remits 100% of the donation to the selected organization shortly thereafter.

Mobile fundraising has made it convenient for everyone to support the many charitable organizations that do so much good for the less fortunate in our community. ZipGive is proud to offer this superior mobile fundraising service to Canadians and pleased to remind you that the act of giving has never been so easy.
