“The Kintera website is working great. In just over one day I raised $325. Unbelievably easy! The response has been overwhelming and many people have emailed me to tell me about someone in their family who has diabetes. This is really something. Kintera, it’s a great idea.”

“The online components Kintera is providing have created quite a buzz – people are emailing up a storm. Our Komen Race for the Cure™ participants have said how easy it is to register and solicit, and then to collect pledges. There is no doubt that Kintera’s technology will have a great impact on total dollars raised this year.”

MZA Events has used the Kintera service for several campaigns recently and has been very pleased with its functionality, user “friendly-ness”, and the responsiveness of the Kintera representatives. MZA will expand its use of Kintera in the upcoming New York and San Francisco AIDS Walk campaigns based on the increase in online giving and average gift size that we saw in the Los Angeles and Atlanta campaigns.”

Kintera’s trainer was very well prepared, and extremely organized. I thought the training might be over my head because my marketing experience is more offline than online, but I was just amazed how the technology was so user-friendly. I learned so much, and she made me feel comfortable with Internet marketing tools that I had not used before.

American Heart Association
I think online fundraising is fantastic. I sent the link to those in my personal address book the other day; last night I sent the link to about 75 people I work with. It is easy, but what I like the most is I think people are more likely to donate to a legitimate organization knowing effort was put into the person’s effort to do so – the personalized web page for fundraising. It is so professional looking. This way you can contact more people you know. Thank you again so much!

Samara Jan Turkel Foundation
It’s always difficult to ask people for money, especially this year. But when we asked friends via email, they came through for the foundation and truly gave from the heart. We certainly relied on the Internet technology and expertise provided by Kintera in such a short timeframe. As evidenced by our online fundraising success, Internet philanthropy is a very efficient, and effective way to generate dollars for a cause.

The tenacity and spirit of the MS Bike participants was very inspiring. Everyone was determined to get back to business as usual, despite the tragedy of September 11. Honestly, I didn’t feel like participating – I was basically homeless, planning my wedding and just simply trying to get my life back. But in the end, I realized that this was something normal, something I would have done before the attack. Although my fundraising efforts essentially ended September 11, the website and email tools were more effective than any postcard mailing or telephone 'blitz' that I have done for any fundraiser. And I was touched that all of the people who said they would donate online, still did.

Epilepsy Foundation
Our organization is committed to the prevention and control of this disorder, so education is essential to our efforts to generate contributions. Now with Kintera’s innovative “Friends Asking Friends™” technology, not only can the Epilepsy Foundation better manage and deliver messages via the Internet to volunteers and donors, each of the Sharon’s Ride/Walk participants can also make a difference with their own personalized web page and email as they solicit support.

Greg Stein Campaign for California State Assembly
The Internet will provide the competitive advantage to my campaign. Online fundraising and communication is far more efficient and effective than direct mail and phone solicitations alone. With the Internet, I can better position issues and spread the word to my constituents. And grassroots efforts via email and my website are growing. Supporters send my ‘Stein Report’ to their friends and family, who then pass it along to others – which is helping my campaign quickly gain momentum.

National Multiple Sclerosis Society
I find that the most exciting aspect of Kintera’s technology is the immediate availability of numbers from any Internet connection. All the information we need is available in standard reports, and there is virtually a seamless integration into our current website. Additionally, Kintera has provided us with web-based tools that allow our organization to immediately communicate with participants and donors alike.

Gilda’s Club
I really enjoyed using the site for the fundraiser; it made it really easy. Most of my friends are online, and most felt comfortable using VISA to donate directly. It was less hassle for me, and worked more quickly than snail mail to get the money into Gilda’s Club’s hands. Thanks again.

Help Emmitt Help Kids
Despite all of the success I’ve had on the field, what I hope to accomplish with the Help Emmitt Help Kids program represents an extremely significant lifetime goal for me – to have a positive and very real impact on the lives of millions of children and, as a result, on the future of our country. Internet technology has given our fundraising drive the power to reach more supporters, more quickly, easily and safely than has ever been possible.

Kintera’s website production and support contributed to the overwhelming success of the Special Olympics New York Million Dollar Duck Race. With Kintera’s help, we hope to organize an even bigger and better Million Dollar Duck Race next year.
