One of our top 2020 topic poll requests was to feature fundraising apps. Hence, we start our #NPTechClubATX year with a presentation about HelloFund.
Built in Austin, Texas, HelloFund was created for organizations across the globe to digitally fundraise more effectively and simply. In 2016, Phil Sanger and Mike Lacourse teamed up to create a solution for a few organizations in Austin. With the real-time insight and feedback from these clients, Phil and Mike designed HelloFund – an online fundraising platform.
Phil Sanger has over 8 years experience working with nonprofits and schools to help streamline their fundraising events…specifically ones with an auction component. In spring 2010, Phil was a member of the Young Men’s Business League and was the Silent Auction chair for their annual event, Auction Under 40. Phil used an auction software company called Greater Giving to help manage the auction and securely process credit cards for the event. Soon after, Phil was hired on to Greater Giving and worked in a Sales/Marketing role for over 5 years at the company. In addition to meeting with nonprofits and schools to show the benefits of Greater Giving, Phil worked several of these events as an Event Manager to ensure everything run smooth for these organizations in Texas, Michigan and Wisconsin.
