30 March, 2022 – UncommonGood gives nonprofits more time for their mission-driven programs by streamlining their administrative overhead. Challenges such as finding innovative ways to fundraise and managing projects with volunteers and staff alike make it essential to have an affordable and user-friendly platform. What’s more, changing attitudes of younger generations towards philanthropy make a digital presence even more critical for success.
UncommonGood provides a suite of tools to form the operational backbone for nonprofits: fundraising, website support, marketing, operations, project management, brand management, integrations and design.
Founder and CEO Carolyn Driscoll started the company in 2020 with the inspiration from a local nonprofit that helps her father, who lives with Alzheimer’s disease. Driscoll wanted to build an adaptable solution that would help the 80% of the nonprofits that, like them, need something user-friendly and comprehensive to expand their impact.
This women-led tech startup stands apart from the others because it grew out of this sincere customer need, not to mention the fact that it has been a B Corp from the start. As the platform moves into its public launch, it aims to empower over a thousand nonprofits by the end of the 2022 and continue to improve based on customer feedback.
Speaking of UncommonGood’s mission, Driscoll said: “For most nonprofits, managing a hodge-podge of various complex or not-enough technologies is yet another challenge. UncommonGood aims to simplify and streamline, so that the challenges are more manageable and nonprofit leaders can spend more time on their missions.”
After a successful round of fundraising, the company has expanded its internal team and plans to launch additional features including an in-platform media library, email campaigns and extensive integrations to support nonprofits in the next few months.
The media library feature will allow companies to create and store all images, social posts, and videos in one centralized location as well as directly post to social channels from UncommonGood. Email campaigns will enable nonprofits to create, schedule, and analyze communications with efficiency from start to finish.
Talking about the effectiveness of the platform Sarah Grimm, Chief Design Officer at UncommonGood, said: “Feedback of beta users and others has broadened our perspective and has led us to think of our platform’s usefulness for businesses beyond nonprofits – from schools to small businesses and gig workers. Our near-term plan is to adapt our solutions for community-oriented businesses of all kinds.”
“Technology should be affordable and should result in both cost and time savings for any business. Our mission is to empower nonprofits to achieve their goals and eliminate technological barriers,” added Driscoll.
