iRaiser Expands in APAC

“We’re excited to bring our digital fundraising software to the shores of Australia, New Zealand and the wider APAC region. Having worked in the FinTech environment myself, with experience on the ground in Sydney, Australia and throughout Asia, I know first hand how NFP’s will benefit from the online payment solutions we supply.

“The rise and emergence of new payment methods, combined with the right UX, data and technology not only challenges NFP’s traditional channels but also presents great opportunities for exceptional online growth”, said Emmanuel Chaumeau, Chief Executive Officer – iRaiser Group.

“We’re pleased to have our local representative Rebecca Thomson heading up the Melbourne office. Rebecca has been working with the iRaiser Group for the last four years in a leadership role in our Nordics office. Originally from the NFP sector herself, working across digital fundraising, corporate giving, individual giving, and peer-to-peer fundraising, she draws on her experience and expertise to inspire and support her clients. We encourage you to get in touch with Rebecca to arrange a one-to-one digital consultation.

“As one of iRaiser’s co-founders, I’m pleased to see our advanced solutions expand beyond borders and support charities in some of the biggest fundraising markets in the world. I’m humbled by the volume of funds raised through our solutions since our launch, supporting so many causes globally like medical research, the environment, cultural institutions, schools and universities, and humanitarian work to name just a few.
