5 Mobile Fundraising Apps for Do-Gooders and Nonprofits (via nonprofit tech for good)

Since the launch of the iPhone on June 29, 2007 many mobile fundraising apps have been released, but few have been successful. Some apps were based on good ideas, but ahead of their time and others simply weren’t good enough to keep users interested. Six years later the design and functionality of fundraising apps has improved significantly. Still in their infancy, it’s assured that mobile apps will play a dominant fundraising role in the future and nonprofits would be wise to download and study the next generation of fundraising apps listed below.
