Once GiveMN decided to search for a new technology partner, we created a thorough process focused on three areas - technology, partnership, and values alignment.
First, we asked potential providers to fill out an exhaustive questionnaire with more than 200 questions about their organization, technology, security, and how they would serve as a partner to GiveMN and thousands of organizations across the state. Then, members of our board and staff invited respondents to Saint Paul for a presentation and continued discussion focused on values and partnership. Finally, we worked with a local technology vendor with the expertise to understand the scope and scale of GiveMN.org and Give to the Max Day. They thoroughly vetted and evaluated each respondent’s website architecture and testing history to help us evaluate their technology.
After a multi-month process, we selected Mightycause as the best partner based on our review and discussion of their technology, partnership and values alignment.
