Launched just 8 months ago, Donorbox Events has outpaced expectations. The simple to use but sophisticated solution has soared in popularity. From February to September 2022, 422 nonprofits hosted 1,408 events, processing over $1.7 Million in ticketing revenue, and with each enhancement, the numbers continue to climb.
Building off Donorbox’s accessible, simple online fundraising tools for nonprofit organizations to manage all fundraising operations, Events has evolved to meet the growing needs of organizations.
- A robust ticketing foundation: At its core, Donorbox Events is a user-friendly, convenient, and comprehensive event-ticketing form creator, with the ability to reflect fair-market and tax-rate values in the ticket prices, and issue automated tax receipts. From event-specific pages nonprofits’ can offer unlimited ticket types aligned to their pricing strategy, collect and store purchaser information and manage the number of tickets sold with no setup or monthly fee. However, the full impact of the evolved additions really shines in the seamless day-to-day management of ticket sales, checkout options, and simplified tax work.
New additions to the feature are designed to make Donorbox Events the go-to tool for fundraisers throughout the year but offer a number of enhancements to streamline event management in the busy Giving Season.
- Embeddable Event Forms: The ability to embed the event form on their own website is not just useful for nonprofit event organizers, it is a ‘must have’ for any fundraising organization wanting to promote and sell tickets for unlimited events on their own website.
- Embed Apple Pay: A second embeddable option on the event form is Apple Pay, which dominates the US mobile payment market. Available across all Donorbox donation forms Apple Pay is now a donation-driving addition to Donorbox Events’ checkout options.
- Set Ticket Sales Deadlines: In addition to managing sold tickets, purchasers, and payment records at the backend, Events offers the option for a ticket sales deadline, creating a sense of urgency for audiences, and enabling better event attendance planning.
- Planning of Simple Refund Ticket Transactions: Should the need arise, the ability to fully refund the ticket purchase amount, including taking care of the tax as Donorbox Events helps input the fair market value and tax rate to determine the tax-deductibility of tickets on initial set up of the event form.
