The pandemic has pushed countless industries towards the rapid adoption of technology to survive in a contactless world and non-profits are no different. Traditional methods for fundraising have largely been impacted by COVID-19 restrictions and lockdowns. TapSimple is a digital payment and infrastructure platform that enables charities to these new realities by equipping them with a robust set of tools to manage their fundraising efforts. Charities can leverage contactless solutions, host video giving events, build landing pages, sell tickets, and generate QR codes seamlessly from the platform. At a time when things are so difficult for so many, TapSimple is empowering the organizations that are helping the most vulnerable.
