How International China Concern Supercharged their Event Fundraising using the iATS Mobile Payments App

International China Concern is a Christian development organization working with children with disabilities in China.  They provide 24/7 care for children who have already been abandoned as well as supporting families who have a child with a disability, so they don’t become abandoned.

 

Every year in October ICC Canada Hosts their Annual Walk the Wall fundraiser event in Vancouver. For the past two years they have used iATS Mobile and the numbers really speak for themselves:

 

2017 was the first year they decided to sell items on the event day but were only accepted cash for payment and the funds raised were lower then desired. In 2018 they began to use the iATS Payments Mobile App to accept credit cards. Without creating any awareness of the ability to take credit card payments they increased their sales 300% from the previous year.

 

 

In 2019 they promoted the ability to accept credit cards via the iATS Mobile Payments App as and the donations increased another 400% over 2018. According to Karen Chu - the ICC Canadian Office Lead Administrator "We were amazed by the results this year. We even sold out of merchandise to purchase due to using the iATS Mobile App. We will be using iATS Mobile for this event (in the future) and are planning on how to drive even more donations in 2020.".

We are proud to be involved with this event not only with our tech but as volunteers and cannot wait to break another record next year!
