Overview

Welcome to your harness kickoff call we are super excited to partner with you and to get you up and running and fundraising with us - Let's dive in! It's important to identify what challenges you've faced thus far and what goals you have in mind in order for you to be able to grow your revenue, diversify your revenue streams and increase the amount of support you're receiving...

We don't want to reinvent your fundraising wheel because we know that you have some goals and a strategic plan if nothing else about how you'd like to receive money throughout the year from different types of groups so whether you're fundraising in person via direct mail special events or online giving we want to show you how you can use harnesses tools according to industry-wide best practices.

We're going to be in the build phase getting your basics in a row and all your ducks in a row and then you're probably going to be in this phase for the next week or so depending on how quickly you'd like to launch to the public we encourage you before you launch to the public launch this concept of monthly giving and roundup giving to your internal team and staff first just to get them excited they can be the first folks to sign up and support you and they can help you spread the word so let's just dive right into the platform and show you the first tools that you're going to be using with us this is your harness admin dashboard this is for our demo helping people but your dashboard will look exactly the same and in the settings tab a few quick housekeeping things is if you want to update any of your organization information including the cover photo that appears on your giving ages your colors or even the info that appears to your donors on their tax receipts you can do that under the organization tab.

Harness is one of the most innovative and customer focused companies with whom I've ever collaborated. I would recommend Harness to any non-profit organization. The program simply delivers! And we've not even reached our potential with what we can do with the Harness capabilities.

We've loved using Harness so far and we continue to find more ways we can gain value out of the platform while they take care of our basic fundraising needs as well.

We absolutely LOVE working with Customer Support (which is usually not the case). We worked with Meg who has been an absolute delight!

Easy to setup, integrate, and get up and running. We were able to have the first money come in and import our old donor database within a day.
