Bloomfire Announces "Building a Better World" Program for Non-Profits

Company Will Offer Flexible and Discounted Pricing Options for 501c3 Organizations

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 06/20/14 -- Bloomfire, a leading enterprise knowledge and collaboration platform, today announced they will be offering a special program for the growing list of 501c3 organizations asking for support from their platform. The Building a Better World program provides deeply discounted blocks of 10,000 user licenses for 25 cents per user per month.

"The not-for-profit community places a lot of value on building strong and sustainable networks to help them achieve their missions," said Bob Zukis, CEO of Bloomfire. "We want to support and invest in their efforts by giving them access to our technology so that they can effectively collaborate with their supporters, communities and the information that drives their efforts."

"For about half the cost of a postage stamp per user, we are really excited to offer non-profits access to our technology. Bloomfire helps these organizations reach, engage, and stay connected to their communities in a more meaningful way as they build a better world," said Shelley Schmoker, VP of Marketing for Bloomfire.

Connecting networks of employees, fundraisers, and volunteers, Bloomfire's enterprise collaboration platform is enabling non-profits such as The Miracle Foundation, The LIVESTRONG Foundation, and Make-A-Wish to more effectively connect with their supporters, build communities around their mission, share ideas and best practices, and provide access to a central repository of information.

"What I love about Bloomfire is that, like the LIVESTRONG Foundation, it's about community," said Tina Hamilton, Director of Foundation Relations and Grants for the LIVESTRONG Foundation. "It's helped our team efficiently collaborate between departments, brainstorm to solve problems and keep everyone involved in news relevant to our everyday work."

"We use Bloomfire to communicate with our board and volunteers," said Scott Crews, Director of Development for Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas. "Bloomfire helps our volunteers conduct wish interviews in the field by providing a central knowledge base where they can ask questions as well as find the information they need using either their laptop or mobile app, even when our office is closed."

"We're an organization that is constantly learning, adapting and improving our methodology," said Niyoshi Mehta, Program Manager for The Miracle Foundation. "Bloomfire allows us to make sure that everyone is using the same resources for training. Because we're scaling and growing so much, we're constantly hiring new team members. Bloomfire makes us more efficient when we train new team members and ensures we are ultimately providing the best care to orphans. We have team members on two different continents, and Bloomfire makes things simpler."
