About

Community Groundwork

Community originally started out as a request for a website that could provide a cost-effective tracking solution for a 24 hour “Big Give” giving campaign. Since then, it has developed into an online giving platform that helps communities provide online fundraising campaigns that raise awareness and funds for non-profit organizations.

During the “Big Give” participating local charitable organizations are highlighted and each non-profit can educate the public about a social cause or service they provide and allow for the community to donate towards a specific or general need.

Community is defined as: a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common;  sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals.  Our mission is to bring together your community to support one another with an online fundraising tool that is affordable and easy to use.

From Project to Passion

Developing this project has been one of the most rewarding experiences that I have had in software development. Seeing the fruit of my labor being used to help communities come together has been extremely satisfying. I’m passionate about being part of something bigger that contributes to the benefit of each community. – Derek Feagin

 Testimonial

“This service helped us more than quadruple our online donations received from year one to year two of the Columbus Big Give. The format was simple enough for anyone to use and many people were actually quite ‘addicted’ to watching the website throughout the day to see the total update in real-time.”
