Dear community leaders,

My name is Tom Matthews, and I’m the CEO of Mightycause, the technology partner of GiveMN and the software which powers On behalf of my entire team, I am excited to have the chance to reach out to you today to share more about how Mightycause has been working hard to serve the fundraising needs of nonprofits and schools, both in Minnesota and beyond.

Last year, we launched our partnership with GiveMN with the primary objectives of creating a seamless transition to our platform, delivering uninterrupted service, and providing great user experience for your organizations and the donors who power your work. After serving as technology partner for our first Give to the Max event with record results and far fewer customer service requests than has seen in previous years, we have worked this year to further strengthen the reliability of our systems and add new features geared toward assisting your organization to maximize your online fundraising.

Although we’ve created fundraising software which can facilitate tens of millions of dollars at more than a transaction per second, we’re especially focused on the fundraising needs of small- to medium-sized organizations. Raising funds is one of your toughest jobs, and you’re doing it while simultaneously working to meet your missions. To help you do more with less, we’ve just launched our Mightycause Advanced fundraising suite of additional donor engagement and stewardship tools, and we’re offering a free trial to GiveMN users through the end of November 2019.

Through our new Mightycause Advanced features, it’s become easier than ever to manage and communicate with your donors by creating a database of your contacts and their giving history, and even email them directly from the Mightycause system. It includes access to a Text-to-Give feature to make mobile event or responsive  fundraising easier for donors. You can integrate your data with your other online services through our Data Connect feature, supporting more than 1,000 third party applications, including popular apps like MailChimp, Constant Contact, and Salesforce. We’ve also added additional tracking and analytics tools to help you better understand your current donor base, as donor retention is very important to us.

We hope you’ll take advantage of the extended free trial of Mightycause Advanced during Give to the Max Day 2019 to try out these services live during your campaign! You can check them out by logging into your account or visiting We think these tools will help you manage your giving strategies, donor data and communications during GTMD and year-round.

On behalf of my team, we’re thrilled to be working with thousands of Minnesota nonprofits and schools like yours on Give to the Max Day and all year-round. Good luck with your year-end fundraising. Let us know how we can help this year by emailing us.

Happy fundraising,

Tom Matthews, CEO
