Evite, the world’s leading digital platform for bringing people together, announced its Evite Donations tool has garnered over $3 million in charitable contributions since its launch in September 2015.
Evite Donations powered by Pledgeling enables event planners and party hosts to offer guests donation-giving as part of their event options. Evite provides this service free to planners, hosts and guests that use Evite.com, and unlike many online donation-processing services, Evite does not take a portion of the charitable donations as a fee.
Top charities that have benefited from Evite Donations include the American Diabetes Association, UNICEF, Doctors Without Borders, Make-a-Wish, American Cancer Society, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
“Throughout the year and for a variety of events, people are increasingly making charitable giving part of their party plans,” said Victor Cho, Chief Executive Officer of Evite. “Evite Donations makes it easier than ever for our party hosts and guests to spread generosity and joy in the world. With just one click, even the smallest donations can add up to make a big impact.”
The average donation made through Evite Donations is $50.00. The company expects its cumulative charitable donations to grow exponentially as the Evite Donations feature continues to gain in use and popularity.
With free, easy-to-use invitation designs, inspirational video content, and a private sharing feed for photos and conversations, Evite makes coming together face-to-face effortless and more memorable for its 100+ million annual users. The company currently sends 20,000 invitations every hour and handles hundreds of millions of RSVPs every year. One in four people in the United States receives at least one Evite invitation each year, and the company has sent over 2 billion event invitations in its history. Launched in 1998, Evite is headquartered in Los Angeles and is a subsidiary of Liberty Interactive Corporation, attributed to the Liberty Ventures Group (NASDAQ: LVNTA, LVNTB).
