San Diego-based Events.com, an event management platform that facilitates the hosting and attending of events, and CrowdRise, an online platform dedicated exclusively to charitable fundraising, recently announced a partnership that will offer an integrated fundraising experience on one platform.
“We are extremely happy to partner with Events.com to provide a global solution that combines their powerful event registration tools with our market-leading charity and fundraising platform,” said Jeffrey Wolfe, a co-founder of CrowdRise. “Events.com fully understands the power of creating a charitable narrative around an event. The integration puts fundraising at the very heart of the Events.com platform which is a game-changer for driving social impact online and offline.”
The CrowdRise and Events.com partnership is a strategic fit, leveraging the two companies’ strengths, fundraising and event management software, respectively, Events.com said.
“We understand how complicated fundraising can be, and we are excited to work with visionaries like the team at CrowdRise to be able to provide more meaningful and compelling experiences for our users,” said Gregg Parise, chief executive officer of Events.com. “Fundraising is a natural complement to event participation and we will be working closely with a company that shares our core values.”
Events.com has over 75 employees with headquarters in San Diego and an office in Ottawa, Canada.
CrowdRise was founded by actor Edward Norton, film producer Shauna Robertson and Robert and Jeffrey Wolfe. CrowdRise has conceived and implemented campaigns that have raised more than $250 million to date.
