BC Cancer Foundation
"Convio has enabled us to significantly increase the amount of revenue we generate via the Internet. A Convio Virtual Administrator helped grow our online donations from $10,000 per month to $130,000 per month during the peak holiday season. In FY2007, we raised $582,000 online, $80,000 of which was received through Convio TeamRaiser. We are excited to continue to leverage Convio's functionality in creative ways that help the Foundation raise more money to fund cancer research and care."
