B1G1 is all about making giving a habit, so automating the process would make sense. We also know that giving needs to be a very real experience for our business members. There is a great sense of achievement in knowing that as a result of your business activities you have created direct impacts to your chosen projects.
Automate your Giving Stories via Zapier
With effect from August 2019*, we are excited to share with you a powerful way of automating your Giving Stories: via Zapier.
Zapier is an online automation tool that allows you to connect apps you use every day to automate tasks and save time, without coding or relying on developers to build the integration.
If you are an existing Zapier user, you can already link 1,500+ apps – including MailChimp, Xero, Quickbooks, InfusionSoft, Autotask, PipeDrive and many more – to B1G1’s Giving Stories.
Once you’ve set up the Zaps, whenever your specified activity occurs on your business apps, your Giving Stories will be automagically added to the Giving Cart. In other words, you now have endless possibilities of linking your daily business activities with high-impact giving.
