When you've worked for the Keela family as long as I have, you really get a sense of the incredibly large and diverse ecosystem that is the nonprofit world. Everyone is on their own journey, everyone is trying to make the world a bigger place! This is why Keela started - to grow and support the ecosystem and ensure that everybody has the opportunity to access technology for their impactful work.
In the recent months, we've seen the emergence of countless new nonprofits that are entering the world at a time when we need it most (for those reading this in the future, I'm writing this in 2020 - a year where we need ALL THE HELP WE CAN GET!).
And it is for these new nonprofits, dear readers, that we have created Keela Starter.
What is Keela Starter?
It's a brand new subscription tier designed to support nonprofits at the very beginning - from the ground up. It's for the folks who might not need all of the features of Keela right away and gives them room to build their nonprofit while leveraging technology. It's centered around Keela's powerful Donation Forms and ensures that nonprofits can start collecting online support for their cause straight out of the gate.
What Keela Features are included in Keela Starter?
The focus of Keela's Starter plan is online fundraising. Users will have varied access to the following features:
- Contacts will be added to Keela when they make a donation through a Keela Donation Form
- Donations will be added to Keela when they are made through a Keela Donation Form
- Impact Areas
- Donation Forms only
I want to Test/Trial Keela - is this the right option for me?
Not quite! We have our very own Sandbox Trial account that you can use to test all of Keela's features for free. The Starter plan is designed for those folks who want to receive online donations through a Keela Form, but only expect to receive gifts from less than 250 Contacts.
