GiveMN, the nonprofit that facilitates online donations, said Thursday it’s switching technology brokers after the site crashed on its biggest day last year.
On Give to the Max Day 2013, technical difficulties plagued the site for many hours. Even so, $17 million was raised that day for thousands of local nonprofits, including MinnPost.
Since its start in 2009, GiveMN has been using Razoo for its technology. But Executive Director Dana Nelson announced today a switch to Kimbia, a Texas firm.
“The partnership will enable GiveMN to provide tools for online giving that are powerful, innovative, reliable and easy to use,” Nelson said in the announcement.
The change will come this summer, and Nelson said: “We will work closely with nonprofits and schools to make the transition as seamless and simple as possible.”
The processing fee will remain at 4.9 percent, and will cover technology, processing and administrative fees, she said.
