The idea for Fundit was inspired by a colleague of mine who had just seen the tremendous impact created by a major sporting event that dedicated a portion of the gate to ‘helping our troops’. As much as he was impressed, he noted “how sad it was of us as a society to generally only recognize our troops once a year on Remembrance Day (Nov11)… “we should be giving once a month” he said, “especially now when our troops are so active around the world at this time.”
I agreed wholeheartedly with his sentiments and began expanding the idea to all charities and non profit organizations that depend on annual or semi annual events to bring in the bulk of operating funding but were still falling short of their objectives. There just had to be a better way to create a sufficiently steady income without compromising the impact of the events.
Given my recent involvement in mobile marketing my whole perspective changed on how business is being done and will be done in the immediate future. The experts were saying that mobile is easily the biggest available marketing playing field the world has to offer…
Returning to my colleague’s dilemma, it became apparent to me that we could help solve the challenge by applying today’s mobile technology to offer a different opportunity for both fundraising organizations and supporters to raise money for their cause. It needed to be simple, easy and efficient.
Fundit is exactly that – Simple to understand, safe to participate, easy to setup and efficient for both the contributor and the receiving organization. In addition, this application is poised to be introduced to a younger, technology savvy generation as well as including the increasingly mobile aware, middle and baby boomer generations.
In a time when there is an excess of good causes needing monetary help, and so many events to support and /or participate, Fundit offers the opportunity for the busy family, the shut-ins or constantly mobile professional to be included in the efforts of any individual cause.. It can be offered to existing supporters (who can usually give more) or reach new markets because the technology matches their lifestyle. In any case, Fundit could be right for you or your organization.
We believe that Fundit is going to contribute to make this a better world and invite you to jump on board, give it a try and help us reach our goal of helping as many charities and non-profit organizations as possible across our great country.

In general we have created an innovative fund raising strategy aimed at providing Charitable Foundations with a unique fund raising technique.
This is a seamless mobile application allowing donors to download the ‘Charity App’ of your choice and easily make your donation instantly via your smart phones and tabs including but not limited to the i Phone, Blackberry applications, Google Android, Windows and the numerous Tab platforms. Our ‘State of the Art’ technology includes the ‘Ruby on Wheels’ platform and secured servers to protect information and an established ‘Gateway’ to securely handle all financial transactions.

It is our corporate goal to utilize our technology for the benefit of all Charities and NPOs in assisting them achieving and surpassing their financial goals. We intend to become the primary online platform where supporters and their Charities of choice can come together, communicate and conduct safe and secure contributions. We see this as an excellent way to introduce this ‘Social Enterprise’ partnership for the benefit of Charities and the convenience of their supporters.
