MANY OF TODAY’S NON-PROFITS INCORPORATE THE STRATEGY OF THROWING 5-7 ANNUAL EVENTS TO RAISE BIG DOLLARS FROM THEIR TOP SUPPORTERS. WE ZERO IN ON OUR TOP 10% OF DONORS, IN HOPES THAT A FEW OF THEM WILL WRITE THE BIG CHECK. AND WHY NOT? IT WORKS!
HOWEVER, WE LEAVE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS ON THE TABLE BY NOT ADEQUATELY SERVING AND CATERING TO OUR "AVERAGE" DONORS. MIRAJ WILL WALK US THROUGH THE POWER OF MICRODONATIONS AND HOW WE CAN ELEVATE OUR $50-$100 DONORS TO GIVING 5X MORE BY SIMPLY CHANGING “THE ASK”.

In less than 2 years of incorporation, Harness is already working hand in hand with over 45 organizations across the USA who have adopted the Harness platform. Harness was named the 2016 Tampa Bay Rays Breakout Startup Company of the Year and nominated for the 2017 Tampa Bay Technology Forum’s Emerging Technology Company of the Year.
