Co-Founder and Chair of Raisely, Murray Bunton commented, “We are thrilled with the impact we have had to date, but in so many ways, our success so far is merely the end of the beginning. We see a future where the majority of philanthropy happens online, and where every charity has access to reliable, low-cost fundraising to drive their missions forward.”
Commenting on the partnership, Raisely Co-Founder and CEO, Tom Maitland said, “The next milestone we have our sights set on is helping nonprofits raise $1 billion online. To do that, we need tens of thousands of charities to know about and benefit from Raisely. That means finding partners with the expertise to help us grow faster than we have before, on a foundation of values that match Raisely’s, and we’ve found that with Aplos and ASG.”
