Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, Relay For Life

One new ACS FUNdraising app serves both Relay and Making Strides

One new ACS FUNdraising app serves both Relay and Making Strides

To better serve our Relay For Life and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer participants, we have consolidated previous apps into one new comprehensive user experience that fundraisers can use to solicit and collect donations and track and share their progress, anywhere, anytime.

Donations will be displayed on personal fundraising dashboards to monitor progress, and the progress of their team and event, in almost real time (meaning there may be a several minute delay).

The ACS FUNdraising app is available for iOS and Android. You can download it from Apple iTunes and Google Play stores.

Anyone may download the app, but users must be registered for an upcoming event and use the same email address they used to register for their event.

Mobile internet usage has skyrocketed, with the number of mobile users now surpassing desktop users. According to Ben Kaplan, senior director, Mobile, “The ACS FUNdraising app is the latest example of how ACS is responding to consumer demand and transforming the event and donation experience by seamlessly connecting online, mobile, and physical events for the thousands of volunteers who engage with us every year.”

ACS FUNdraising App Features

With the ACS FUNdraising, users can:

  • Easily and securely accept credit card and check donations
  • Utilize Pay-Pal for easy, no-card-needed fundraising
  • Solicit donations and send donation reminders via email, text message, Facebook, or Twitter
  • Set and update personal or team goals
  • Track personal or team goals for Relay For Life and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events
  • Share personal or team progress via Facebook, Twitter, email, or text

The ACS FUNdraising app allows users to get real-time payment verifications, accept personal or business donations, and send email receipts to donors. And once fundraising is complete, the app allows users to thank their family and friends for their generous support.
