MaestroSoft Reinvents Mobile Fundraising With Text2Fund

For the First Time, Donors Can Use PayPal Account to Support Favorite Organization

BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwired - Jun 16, 2015) - MaestroSoft, the premier provider of charity fundraising solutions utilized by major organizations such as the Muscular Dystrophy Association, today announced the launch of 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. It's the perfect addition for all fundraising campaigns big and small... from nationwide walks and charitable campaigns to local events, athletic teams and fundraisers.

The recent fundraising campaigns for the Nepal earthquake survivors is a good example of how organizations and their donors are constrained by traditional mobile technologies. Most people have only one option; send a text via their wireless provider. The donation is restricted to a typical maximum amount of $10 with funds taking up to 90 days to process.

MaestroSoft recognized that their customers needed to provide donors with another option that was less restrictive and more efficient to distribute funds. The solution was obvious -- thousands of organizations already had PayPal accounts and wanted to accept donations using the platform.

"Text2Fund makes sense not only for non-profits but literally any group seeking to increase fundraising through mobile donations, "said Ken Kleve, President and COO, MaestroSoft. "For the first time, donors can use their existing PayPal account or easily create one to contribute whatever they're comfortable giving and the money is usually available within a few days. This is going to fundamentally change the model and become the defacto standard for mobile fundraising in the era of smartphones."

Collecting Donations (Note -- Requires organization to have PayPal account)
It only takes three easy steps for supporters to donate using Text2Fund:

1-Text custom word chosen by organization to designated number
2-Click on link in text message
3-Complete donation using PayPal account
