Counterpart is thrilled to have participated in another successful year of GivingTuesday. On December 1st, we participated in a worldwide day of giving in partnership with Riley Children’s Foundation (Riley) and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana (BBBSCI). The entire day was all powered by buzz, social media, collaboration, and campaigning. We are thrilled to have hit the $1,000,000 level of fundraising in this, our sixth year! We also humbly want to extend our appreciation to so many of our supporters, as well as those that supported both Riley and BBBSCI.
In 2014, when we launched AppToGive, we began our partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana. Their collaboration allowed us to beat our inaugural year by more than 300%! AppToGive helped us provide a unique fundraising app that offers donors a live and engaging experience on nearly any device. With over 4,200 donors, we have been able to raise over $468,900 with BBBSCI in the past six years.
In 2015, we expanded our partnership to include Riley Children’s Foundation. Riley is the fundraising organization to Riley Hospital. This five-year relationship has helped raise over $552,700 in GivingTuesday donations, with over 2,529 donors through AppToGive. Through this partnership, Riley’s vision to conduct lifesaving pediatric research and enhanced treatment for patients with family-centered services has been significantly enhanced.
We love what we do! And especially love when we get to show off our skills to make such an impact in our community. We are even more excited when that impact is having helped raise over $1,000,000 to support BBBSCI and Riley and support so many youth in our community!
