United Way of Greater Knoxville Selects StratusLIVE Nonprofit Industry Cloud Solution

StratusLIVE is honored to announce that United Way of Greater Knoxville has chosen StratusLIVE’s Nonprofit Industry Cloud Solution as their comprehensive, end-to-end digital engagement, corporate CSR, and donor management solution. The solution consists of StratusLIVE’s industry leading Nonprofit 365 CRM, Give at Work for corporate social responsibility (CSR), and the Ignite Online platform for digital engagement.

Last fall, United of Greater Knoxville began the selection process for a modern technology partner that would support the organization’s rapid transformation and growth. Leadership and staff needed a scalable, enterprise solution that would allow them to execute a new fundraising model. This model would support the needs of current workplace giving donors while energizing a new generation of givers. Their evaluation process led them to select StratusLIVE for a comprehensive Nonprofit Industry Cloud Solution that includes a complete CSR platform in addition to new engagement methods to expand individual giving. 

United Way of Greater Knoxville’s corporate partners will gain the opportunity to utilize StratusLIVE Give at Work to engage their employees through giving, volunteering, and other community engagement opportunities. Employees and other donors can elect to participate in recurring giving, create their own online profiles, and engage in multiple digital giving modes including peer-to-peer, team-based, and DIY fundraising.  

In addition to these enhanced engagement opportunities for donors, United Way of Greater Knoxville will benefit from increased staff efficiencies and internal user adoption through StratusLIVE’s native integration with Microsoft Outlook and Teams. Furthermore, with business automation capabilities and fundraising intelligence, development teams will increase the organization’s maturity and capabilities in cultivating and securing major and transformative gifts.
