Every non profit functions on the common knowledge that deep and meaningful engagement with donors, volunteers, and members improves outcomes. Fostering communities enables nonprofits to be more effective in increasing attendance at fundraising events, volunteering hours, donations, and member retention. But building and sustaining communities is not an easy feat as it requires the right talents, acumen, systems, and processes. And this is where nonprofits struggle to gain momentum, especially in the context of building and managing online/virtual communities that are increasingly relevant in the wake of the pandemic.

Enter Graduway, a leading community, development, and enablement software company that provides tools and technologies supporting the entire virtual community lifecycle for nonprofits, schools, colleges, and universities. From recruiting and mentoring students or volunteers to cultivating donors, Graduway enables it all. In addition to partnerships with over 2,000 educational institutions, the company extends its solutions to other nonprofits and healthcare organizations worldwide. To date, Graduway has partnered with and managed the end-to-end community lifecycles of top schools and some of the most remarkable global nonprofits including UCLA, Columbia University, Coca Cola Scholars Foundation, Cure Alzheimer's Fund, and the nonprofit initiatives for Microsoft.

With its white-label community empowerment and enablement solution, Graduway helps nonprofits build close relationships with their stakeholders—students, parents, volunteers, and alumni—through valuable conversations and connections. The company offers tools that prompt connections between an organization's team and communities and help users scale networking efforts.
For example, Graduway's PeerPal is a chat widget and video messaging tool that facilitates a unique environment where schools and colleges can engage prospective parents and students in a meaningful conversation with their current faculty, alumni, and admitted families. Also, the fundraising enablement solution, Gravyty, leverages AI/Machine Learning to help frontline fundraisers manage the overall fundraising workflow like creating tailored emails for donors and prospects, personalized stewardship, automation based on donor activities, and optimizing the qualification of portfolios. It also identifies the next available prospects and provides the right information to donors at the right time. The other solutions offered by the company include GradCareers for advanced mentoring programs and career services, GradEngage for alumni networking and relations, and GradAdvance for activation of giving initiatives and the development of thriving donor communites. What's more, Graduway's CRM integrations and proprietary API allows organizations to integrate these solutions into their existing software. "With our suite of tools, we unleash the power of virtual communities and improve the brand affinity of nonprofits. At Graduway, we always remain true to our slogan: 'More ambassadors. More mentors. More donors. One community.' as it drives us to help them transform the world into a better place," prides Daniel Cohen, Founder and CEO of Graduway.

The prowess of Graduway's solution is such that it helped one nonprofit to raise funds of 26 million within 24 hours. Graduway also played a pivotal role in helping a reputed university in California match mentors for each of their 20,000 students and enabled them to seamlessly monitor all those relationships.

Adorned with such success stories, Graduway aims to continually provide the best technology to nonprofit organizations and assist them in nurturing meaningful and close relationships with their communities. "Graduway is leading the transformation of the nonprofit sector. The future of fundraising will be led by on the one hand empowering the communities who support these wonderful organizations and on the other hand, providing the technological tools to enable these organizations to scale. Graduway is proud to be at the heart of this transformation," concludes Cohen.
