Austin , TX – Aug 30, 2010 – Sage North America today announced the Connect with Sage grant contest for its recently launched, award-winning Sage Fundraising Online service. The contest will award grants to six nonprofit organizations. Entrants will be in two categories—Smaller Organizations and Larger Organizations—based on annual funds, and contest winners will be determined based on the total amount raised using Sage Fundraising Online.
The contest begins on October 1, and is open to any tax-exempt organization in North America or a registered Canadian charity. On December 18, the top six organizations—three in each of two categories, Smaller Organization and Larger Organization—with the highest total amount raised using Sage Fundraising Online will be deemed winners. The two Grand Prize winners will each receive a $5,000 grant, with the four other winners receiving grants of $1,000 (Second Prize) or $500 (Third Prize).
“Sage Fundraising Online makes it easy for nonprofits to meet their donors where they already are—online,” said Krista Endsley, senior vice president and general manager for Sage Nonprofit Solutions. “Organizations using the service can empower their supporters to recruit others, advocate for their cause, and raise funds. I know nonprofits will see great results with Sage Fundraising Online, and I look forward to congratulating our first Connect with Sage contest winners.”
