Since the successful launch of GivenGain Teams in March, our first users – Two Oceans Marathon, Cape Epic, Midmar Mile and Cape Town Cycle Tour – report more than R2 million in total team-based fundraising! 

Jannie Smith and Marius Maré have been taking Teams to event organisers and companies in South Africa, meeting with FNB, Nedbank, PwC, Capitec and Woolworths, among others. 

The product was extremely well received, and the team is amped to help our new corporate and event sign-ups implement it as part of their corporate social responsibility (CSR) programmes and event calendars. 

It’s obvious that a team-based approach is one of the most efficient ways to fundraise, as it enables employees and event participants to do so around mass events such as Mandela Day, Cansa Shavathon, company races, etc. But what we’ve learnt is that everyone is potentially a GivenGain Teams user – from small companies to larger ones, cycling and running events, schools and universities – literally any group that wants to fundraise as a team.
