Givesource is a great open-sourced platform for communities and institutions interested in an inexpensive platform to host their annual Giving Day.

Across the country, they are called Giving Days — 24-hour fundraising frenzies. Donors who contribute to nonprofit groups, naturally, want as much of their money as possible to go to the charities, as opposed to administrative costs. A Nebraska company now has devised an approach it says will direct more of the donations to nonprofits.

Givesource®, a software platform for community foundations hosting giving days, announced today that it is now available as open source software. This makes Givesource® the only giving day platform that can be used for free, while also making it possible for software developers around the world to contribute new features.
