Hello, Contribute.com Customers!

 

We are thrilled to announce a partnership with CollegeNET's Contribute.com customers. 

We know that in order to get value in the form of tuition and donations, colleges must first demonstrate value to their communities.  We've made it easy for your community to get value on Switchboard in the form of opportunities and career networking,  and give back to your institution through simple integration with your Contribute.com form.

Reed College, a long time CollegeNET customer, was the first school to pilot the Contribute.com into their Switchboard platform.  "The test efforts yielded results that helped us reach our donor goal," says Mike Teskey, Reed's Director of Alumni Relations. On average, Reed's donation prompt receives more than 40,000 unique views per month. 

Switchboard boasts some of the highest adoption and engagement in the industry, with 60% of young alumni and 97% of current students using the platform and mobile app.  More than 40% of posts on Switchboard are about jobs, internships, and career opportunities, and of those, our users report a 70% success rate.  

The process is simple: sign up for a subscription to Switchboard and take advantage of a special offer for Contribute.com customers. Integrate your donation form directly into Switchboard. Donor information will be pre-populated into the form, making it that much easier for community members to donate.
