How Using Kindful Saves Friends of Kijabe Thousands of Dollars Every Year
Friends of Kijabe provides access and affordability for the best medical and surgical care in East Africa and supports medical education for surgeons, anesthetists, nurses, and clinical officers. They believe where you are born should not determine the quality of healthcare you receive, which is why they’re working to provide world-class healthcare in the developing world.
The staff at Kijabe Hospital sees 200,000 patients and performs around 10,000-15,000 surgeries each year, proving there is a great need for their services. For Friends of Kijabe, that need translated into the search for a donor management software that could handle the donations necessary to continue this important work.
Searching For A Dynamic Software Solution
David Shirk is Friends of Kijabe’s Executive Director. From day one, David says he knew the organization would need a donor management platform in order to thrive.
“It’s easy for somebody just to give to a charity, but it’s harder to make it easy for them to give to a charity for a specific purpose,” he says.
One thing that initially attracted him to Kindful was the platform’s ability to let people give to different funds and provide the organization with reports detailing the transactions.
David was also impressed with how easy Kindful made it for the donor to make a gift, whether that person is a tech-savvy member of Gen Z or a 70-year-old person who isn’t as tech-literate. That’s an important feature because, as he says, “The most important thing is ease-of-use for the donor. With Kindful it’s possible to set it up where people can give in two-to-three clicks.”
And it doesn’t matter where people live; with Kindful, Friends of Kijabe can easily accept donations from people around the world.
