GoGetFunding Newsletter – November 2016

Message from Sandip (CEO)

Welcome to our new newsletter! The purpose is to inform, inspire and update! The last few months at GGF have been hectic!

We’ve welcomed two new customer service reps (Amanda & Marcel) and have made a ton of other tiny and not so tiny changes to help you raise more money online!

Thanks for being part of the GGF community and I hope you enjoy this update! 🙂

Features, Updates & News!

We were delighted to launch our French language platform recently, and the response has been truly heartwarming. This site is 100% French and the support staff who are on hand to guide and welcome new fundraisers to our site are fluent French speaking.

Amanda, one of French support team members, says:
“Giving francophone fundraisers the possibility to access all GGF features in their own language is a huge step towards making it as easy as possible for people to raise funds online and highlights GGF’s commitment with its users.”.
“Donner aux collecteurs de fonds francophones la possibilitĂ© d’accĂ©der Ă  toutes les fonctionnalitĂ©s de GGF dans leur propre langue est un grand pas pour rendre le plus facile pour les gens de recueillir des fonds en ligne et met en Ă©vidence l’engagement de GGF avec ses utilisateurs”

Campaign Highlights:

Help Save Haggis!!! – A great example of how to do it right

Help Save Haggis!!! was a campaign set up earlier this month by Jen. This campaign is a great example of what makes a campaign stand out. She has lots of great photos and videos, plenty of links to websites, social media and more. She has added updates and it is clear she is working hard to engage potential donors. Top marks for effort, Jen! Good luck with the rest of your campaign! To view Jen’s campaign, click here
