It is a little bit of self promotion for Convio but it is also an amazing set of stories of the power good stories and good technology tools being leverages on the web. I like the underdog stories....Meatless Monday doing a great e-newsletter and the start up Trisomy 18 Foundation.
Trisomy 18 Foundation received a notable mention for its Child’s Legacy Support Program. It used Convio’s peer-to-peer Tributes, increasing online monthly donations from $2,000 to $10,000 and doubling its email file in just over 12 months. The organization had an average of 400 new registrants per month, increasing unique Web site visitors from 8,000 to 20,000 in one year
ifteen nonprofit organizations received awards and recognition in eight categories: email communications (newsletters and other email engagement techniques); email list growth; Web site (using Convio CMS or PageBuilder); online fundraising; integrated (online and offline) fundraising; advocacy campaign; use of Web 2.0/peer-to-peer marketing techniques outside of special events (e.g., Convio Tributes, Widgets); and special events fundraising (Convio TeamRaiser™). The awardees were selected from 70 nominations submitted by Convio clients, partners and staff.
"Celebrating our clients' success and results is one of the most important things Convio can do for the community we serve," said Vinay Bhagat, Founder, Chairman and Chief Strategy Officer, Convio, who headed the Innovator Awards committee. "We are delighted to recognize the innovative ways our clients are using Convio software and services to take constituent relationships to new levels."
