mGive, a mobile applications service, has published seven steps to creative holiday giving campaigns that can ensure 100 percent passthrough of all nonprofit donations. Mgive coordinates mobile tools such as the Facebook App, Flash Donation widget, and QR Code creator to make mobile giving more efficient. Noting a 97 percent open rate of text messages, mGive’s tips for effective SMS donations include enlisting corporate partners, promoting non-monetary messages, and integrating call-to-action.  

Xcel Energy has announced its 10,000th Home Energy Squad visit in Minnesota. In a visit, two Excel energy experts work with a homeowner to choose energy-efficient improvements, which are then made on the spot. Since 2010, the program has saved enough energy through improvements to provide 1,300 homes with electricity and gas for a year.
