We’re not your average tech company -- we started in your shoes, from within the nonprofit sector. Our Founder, Brooke Battle, was what we like to call a “serial board member.” Having chaired many fundraising events, she began to realize that nonprofits’ approach to fundraising events needed to shift. The first event utilizing the Swell platform (then called Smart Party) occurred in 2012, and the team spent the next 12 months building an app and rebuilding the platform for a few events in 2013. With a proven model and viable software, Swell Fundraising won the 2014 Alabama Launchpad competition and now has clients throughout the country. We have nonprofit roots and a deep passion for helping our clients expand their work. We believe event fundraisers hold more value than traditionally ‘unlocked’ by nonprofits and we LOVE helping nonprofits reach for more.
