GIVERGY TAKES OVER FUNDRAISING ARM OF LUMI
Givergy are solely dedicated to helping their charity partners across the globe raise more through cutting edge technology, and are looking forward to integrating Lumi’s fundraising division into the business.
How will this affect Lumi?
Lumi, previously known as IML, was a pioneer in the charity tech market and have decided to part with the fundraising arm of their business as part of a strategic decision to focus on its core corporate tech offerings.
This move reaffirms our strategic decision to exit the charity fundraising part of our business and to concentrate on our four core business areas. We are working closely with Givergy to manage existing contractual obligations and to transfer existing and previous client relationships as smoothly as possible. Richard Taylor, CEO of Lumi
How does this acquisition add value to Givergy’s existing business?
Lumi has been in the event tech market for over a decade and has built a great reputation and client base across the globe during that time. Givergy will utilise this to further strengthen their client base and presence in Hong Kong, Europe, North America and Australia (Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane).
We were initially approached by Lumi to acquire their fundraising arm in November 2015 and following several months of discussion we are delighted to have struck a deal which makes total sense for both firms. Global Director of Business Development at Givergy, Jon Douglas
What does this mean for you?
The last 12 months have seen Givergy support 1,200 events and raise over AUD$50 million for countless incredible causes.
Givergy are therefore pleased to now be able to offer Lumi’s existing client base their award-winning fundraising products. Be it online, through your own mobile device or using our dedicated fundraising 7 tablets Givergy have every nature of product to help you raise more at you next fundraising event.
For further information, please contact us, we look forward to working with you!
