Rise with the MissionBox Nonprofit Engagement Revolution™
MissionBox is committed to a revolutionary idea: that true, deep and personalized “head and heart” engagement with supporters — donors, staff, volunteers, board members, alumni and other consumers — can drive social change and strengthen financial sustainability for all nonprofits and charities.
In 200 to 250 words, tell us what the term “Nonprofit Engagement Revolution” means to you, in the context of your organization’s impact and bottom line. We'll present your answers to our team of nonprofit expert judges who will select the best response. The selected winner will be awarded a $2,000 (USD) cash grant.
We'll also be offering one year of MissionBox Engagement Communities software, designed for nonprofits to deeply engage constituents, to the three runners-up in the application process. This gift requires no purchase of any kind and includes no-charge assistance in setting up your branded and personalized Engagement Community. The value of each software donation is approximately $2,000. If you are chosen, there is no obligation to accept.
