Nonprofit crowdfunding platform RallyUp announced on Wednesday it was selected as the technology partner for new fundraising campaign, Nothing But Nets. This news was revealed on the heels of the funding portal’s successful $7 million online fundraising campaign on behalf of Nike and the Michael J. Fox Foundation
RallyUp stated in partnership with the United Nations Foundation and the Golden State Warriors, Nothing But Nets is a global campaign that helps families fight malaria by providing bed net essentials to areas that need them most. RallyUp founder and CEO, Steve Bernat, stated:
“We’re gratified to see our growing momentum as the technology provider of choice for these large global campaigns. Our proprietary platform was built to manage all aspects of this new generation of online fundraising campaigns, which require expertise in security and logistics involving hundreds of thousands of participants and infrastructure capable of managing all types of campaigns.”
RallyUp also reported that since 2012, the United Nations Foundation has managed Nothing But Nets in partnership with Golden State Warriors point guard and two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry, who reportedly donates three malaria-prevention bed nets for every three-pointer he scores for the Warriors. To date, the Nothing But Nets initiative has raised more than $60 million.
