Kingdom Workers Drives Mission Work Forward with everydayhero Pro
Kingdom Workers spreads the gospel by mobilizing Christians to create locally sustainable ministries addressing spiritual and physical needs in communities around the world. Kingdom Workers needed an easy-to-use and effective crowdfunding tool to fund their mission trip campaigns. With Blackbaud’s peer-to-peer fundraising solution, the organization was able to benefit from broader fundraising sources to further their mission work and support partner ministry projects.
The volunteer management team at Kingdom Workers needed an online peer-to-peer fundraising platform that was easy to use and could be set up quickly. They previously used MobileCause®, but it caused headaches for the team and required the use of an outside consultant to connect with the organization’s Blackbaud eTapestry® system.
At the same time, Patty Eagon, office manager at Kingdom Workers, received an email from Blackbaud introducing the new everydayhero Pro platform that came already fully integrated with Blackbaud eTapestry. “This notification on the availability of everydayhero Pro was an answer to my prayers. I knew we couldn’t continue with MobileCause, so we started the conversation with Blackbaud to purchase everydayhero Pro,” said Patty.
Kingdom Workers’ Blackbaud account manager showed Patty’s team examples of how campaigns were run on the everydayhero Pro platform during their software evaluation process and it was helpful when making their purchase decision. Patty claimed, “It really seemed to be what we were looking for because it was so easy to use.”
When Kingdom Workers first started using Blackbaud eTapestry to receive online donations, the organization was able to cultivate 600 new donors to add to its database. Last year, that number grew to over 1,000. After making the choice to move to everydayhero Pro for its crowdfundraising efforts, the Kingdom Works team was excited about seeing the same results with everydayhero Pro, as the new platform would bring in even more new donors by making it possible for volunteers to connect with their own
