Dance Marathon Launches Fundraising App

CMN Hospitals is excited to announce the launch of the Miracle Network Dance Marathon app. Partnering with Charity Dynamics, CMN Hospitals is offering this app to any collegiate Dance Marathon event that currently utilizes the Dance Marathon Donor Drive instance.

Participants of Dance Marathon programs will be prompted to download the app via their dashboard when they login to Donor Drive. There will also be a “PS” reminder within email notifications to download the app. Participants can utilize this app to check their fundraising progress, send texts, emails, and launch posts on social media asking for donations, spreading awareness about the cause and thanking their donors.

The app is available now for all iPhone and Android users. Search “Miracle Network Dance Marathon” in the app store and look for the Miracle Network Dance Marathon flame to download. [*]

Fundraising has never been quicker or easier than with the new Miracle Network Dance Marathon Facebook App. It installs in just a few seconds and allows you to opt-in to automatic status updates, upload Dance Marathon profile and cover pictures and ask your entire Facebook network for donations in just a few clicks. To start fundraising through the Miracle Network Dance Marathon Facebook App, login to your Dance Marathon Donor Drive account, and click “Fundraise with Facebook” in the participant dashboard.

We are thrilled to be able to offer this new development to our Dance Marathon programs, in hopes that the app will make fundraising and stewardship successful with just a few clicks.

The home screen of the app allows you to see your total raised and progress toward your goal for both your individual fundraising as well as your team’s fundraising.

 

The app allows you to directly send and post pre-written out messages with your fundraising page link via text message, e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

You can also select from a variety of pre-scheduled posts to be posted with your fundraising link to your Facebook page at different milestones leading up to your Dance Marathon event. If selected, these posts will be shared automatically so you don’t even have to remember to post.

The Donations page of the app allows you to track the donations you’ve received so far. You can also click the “Enter a Donation” button, which will take you to a mobile version of your fundraising page to easily input a donation toward your fundraising. So don’t forget to pass around your phone at your next family dinner to have everyone make a donation!

Best of luck with your fundraising efforts through the Miracle Network Dance Marathon fundraising app!
