Maestro 1996-2016; Pioneering Technology Solutions for Non Profit Fundraising

Company's Mobile Bidding and Payment Platform Adopted by Fundraising Organizations Big and Small, Across U.S.

BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwired - Apr 12, 2016) - MaestroSoft, the premier provider of charity fundraising solutions utilized by major organizations such as the Muscular Dystrophy Association, today announced that 2016 marks the company's 20th year in business, a significant milestone representing a history of leading mobile technologies such as Text2Bid and Text2Fund. These products reflect Maestro's role in empowering nonprofits to dramatically increase their donations by adopting mobile fundraising in the era of smartphones. The company will continue to work with their thousands of customers to streamline vital processes such as bidding, payment and event planning to increase efficiencies and reduce workloads.

Maestro's success is the result of widespread adoption of their platform among nonprofit organizations, from nationwide walks and charitable campaigns to local events, athletic teams and fundraisers. For example, the Text2Bid system played a vital role in helping American Airlines, in support of the Airpower Foundation, hold its most successful Sky Ball event ever in 2015, setting a new fundraising record of 2.2 million dollars.

Jim Ducatte - CEO Boys & Girls Clubs of Coachella Valley
"We have been a Maestro user for well over a decade when we had events that earned about $150K. It has helped us with the steady growth our event has experienced ever since. This year our event will raise nearly $1 million and that would not have been possible without a system that handles all parts of our event planning accurately and easily."

"The guests that attend our event enjoy a hassle free, smooth check in and check out process thanks to the qCheck system and AuctionMaestro software. After the event they get a thank you letter and an accurate tax receipt from the software as well, saving our staff many hours of time which is always in short supply!"

Stacy Galindo - Desert Christian Academy
"We have used Maestro software for over 15 years and it has been essential to a smooth event. Tracking auction items and donors is simple, the software is intuitive, and we are able to produce all the materials for our event flawlessly. "

"We used a different payment processing system for our express payment for a few years but have changed to the MaestroSoft qCheck system now. We no longer need to rent terminals and check in is now paperless.

Jim Stewart - Chaffey Baseball Club
"We started using AuctionMaestro to organize our select baseball club's auction nearly from their first days in business. Many other baseball clubs did the same. The support and continued innovation we saw from Maestrosoft allowed us to continually grow our net profit while not wasting any effort on reinventing the processes of tracking the items and guests or producing any of the materials. It has been essential to running a near flawless event each year."

"When MaestroSoft launched qCheck we immediately embraced it. When they added MaestroWeb we did the same. Their innovation over our 20-year relationship has assured us we made a great decision to partner with them from the beginning."

In addition to Text2Bid, Maestro also launched Text2Fund, an easy and ultra-convenient way to immediately contribute to any campaign using a PayPal account by simply typing a keyword and sending a text message. Text2Fund bypasses traditional mobile donation barriers to provide donors the flexibility to decide how much to donate using an alternate payment source.

"Since the beginning, we've been focused on helping customers use technology to make it simple and quick for their donors to participate in key fundraising events," said Ken Kleve, President and COO, MaestroSoft. "By enabling donors to participate, bid and pay by phone without having to leave their table or even attend the event, Maestro is fundamentally changing the model for mobile fundraising."
