When it comes to getting people together for a cause, nothing is more powerful than social media.
“StayClassy is focused not just on helping non-profits collect donations online, but also manage events and campaigns, track their fundraising results and plug-in,” Mashable’s Christina Warren writes.
Not to be outdone, nine other sites offer ways for non-profits to organize walk-a-thons, distribute petitions or even offer rewards to those donating to your cause at certain levels.
NBCSanDiego is partnering with StayClassy to promote its annual Classy Awards scheduled for Nov. 7 in San Diego.
