Communities for Cause Launches New Website

Communities for Cause (CFC), an innovative mobile advertising platform, today announced the launch of its new website. The goal of the redesign was to make the website easier to navigate, address the needs of businesses, non-profits and supporters, and provide bountiful resources and tools to help users get even more out of the CFC platform.

The new website provides merchant partners with an even greater connection to the growing group of mobile consumers. The website now offers all businesses a Merchant Portal where they can effectively manage their donations, track ROI, send promotional messages to their customers, and gain access to other valuable marketing resources and analytics about their customer-base.

For schools and non-profits, the new website provides an easy way for causes to earn additional funds by participating in CFC’s new “Refer A Merchant” Rewards Program. Through this program, non-profits and supporters can refer new merchants to the CFC platform and in return earn $25 for their selected cause. In addition, the new and improved Cause Dashboard allows non-profits to track how much they have earned, track merchant referrals and access a repository of content and tools for messaging their audience.

“We have proven the platform in 50 cities throughout Orange County and are now expanding into the Sacramento area, Florida, New Jersey, and Texas,” said Gary Allhusen, Communities for Cause CEO. “Our 750+ merchants, 200+ causes and 8,000+ app downloads have driven growth rates of nearly 200% quarter over quarter across all our metrics. We’re very excited about the growth we are experiencing this year and the new website will help us ramp up and manage our continued growth.”

CFC is a mobile and online marketplace that is empowering businesses to capture lifelong, loyal customers by giving back to the community. The platform stimulates increased donations for non-profits by directing their supporters’ spend towards a catalog of participating merchants.
