Cambridge, MA– July 27, 2015 – FrontStream Holdings LLC, the foremost provider of philanthropy solutions for nonprofits and corporations, has acquired BiddingForGood. This move is the latest in a series of strategic moves made by FrontStream and is consistent with their commitment to the development of a completely comprehensive platform for nonprofits and corporations.
BiddingForGood is the most widely recognized platform for online auction and event management and gives fundraisers a cloud-based, intuitive, and easy-to-use, solution that helps them raise more money by offering anytime, anywhere bidding, mobile bidding at events, best-in-class service, and a community of over 450,000 cause-minded shoppers to connect with. Additionally, nonprofits and corporations alike leverage BiddingForGood’s in-kind donation, event and auction management tools.
FrontStream’s integrated philanthropy platform is the most comprehensive set of fundraising and donation processing solutions currently available to corporations and nonprofit organizations. The acquisition of BiddingForGood is the next step in the natural evolution of FrontStreamF’s platform which takes a full-service approach to organizations that have philanthropic interests of any kind; from online and offline fundraising tools to integrated data management systems and marketing tools.
The absorption of BiddingForGood into FrontStream’s philanthropy platform not only strengthens FrontStream’s existing ecosystem of solutions by adding unique capabilities but also builds upon FrontStream’s commitment to connect the nonprofit and corporate sectors through the common thread of philanthropic endeavors. Both FrontStream and BiddingForGood support campaigns for tens of thousands of organizations that span the breadth of the nonprofit, corporate and educational verticals.
“FrontStream has a demonstrated commitment to develop the world’s most diverse, innovative, and efficient suite of integrated tools serving the charitable and business sectors and we realized some time ago that a single-point solution would never adequately meet that need; this expansion is part of our progression as a more holistic provider.” states Nina Vellayan, President and Chief Executive Officer of FrontStream.
The full platform is now inclusive of an interconnected set of tools that address the following solution areas:
Multi-channel fundraising via web, mobile and social interfaces for both individuals and teams
- Online auctions, in-kind donations and sponsorship management tools
- End-to-end event registration and event management with integrated fundraising capabilities
- Workplace giving with matching, payroll, volunteer and peer-to-peer fundraising functions
- Constituent relationship management technology that provides organizations with a 360 degree view of their donors and supporters through comprehensive data collection and management
- Secure and versatile front-ends designed to facilitate web and mobile direct donations anywhere and anytime.
