ChildFund Goes Mobile

by Virginia Sowers, Community Manager

If you have a smart phone or other mobile device, check out the new mobile version of ChildFund’s website at www.ChildFund.org.

“We know our supporters are committed and passionate about helping children around the world, and the mobile site provides them with portable access at all times,” says Cynthia Price, director of communications. “They can share information with others through the site and if they are so moved, they also can donate quickly and easily. Best of all, the site provides direct access for those who have decided to commit to sponsoring a child.”

According to a study by Taptu, a mobile search engine company, nonprofits are becoming quick adapters of mobile technology, using the donation portals to streamline the fundraising process, and contributing to the continued development of mobile commerce, reports Mobile Marketer.

ChildFund’s mobile site offers a text-to-give donation feature, allowing supporters to contribute to children’s greatest needs with just a couple of clicks. Text-to-give is especially efficient in emergency situations when urgent funding is needed for children affected by a natural disaster or civil unrest.

Other features of the mobile site include news briefs, child sponsorship information, overviews of the countries where ChildFund works and ongoing projects for children and communities.

We invite you to visit our site on your mobile device and share the link with others — it’s a great way to introduce friends and family to ChildFund’s work around the globe.
