2023

Dear Orgmatch community,

2022 was a challenging year for many of us with the continued presence of COVID-19 on top of a bad year for the flu, the ongoing War in Ukraine, the impact of inflation, refugee crises, and the global population surpassing 8 billion, highlighting the need for sustainable solutions as our dwindling resources are need by more people.

These issues and the many philanthropic causes that the sector champions – from the conservation of parks, to the funding of public art, to solutions for food security – are why we get out of bed and do the work each day. In 2023, as the disbursement quota in Canada moves from 3.5% to 5%, we believe there is an opportunity for a record number of new partnerships across the sector. Combine this with 8% growth in corporate giving, and we have reason to be optimistic about what 2023 can bring.

At Orgmatch, we are thrilled to have launched our platform and onboarded over 100 nonprofit organizations over the last two months. We’ve also reiterated over several designs to improve the experience and make it easier to onboard and come back to the platform. This has been a major milestone for us, and we could not have done it without your support. We’re also thankful for our partnerships with The Vantage Point and The Partnership Conference to help onboard our first users.

We have signed partnerships with some major funders that are using our platform and many more that are preparing to use it early in the new year. This is helping us to expand our reach and better connect our community. We’re excited about the conversations that are taking place and the partnerships that are forming between current users.

Our team also learned a lot from you and are excited to share the scope of Orgmatch 2.0 in the coming weeks where we will seek your feedback on how we help you match better using opportunities, geographies, and tagging. We’ll also be adding new datasets, revising the design of the profile, and offering report pulling so that you can easily build dockets for your granting and fundraising needs.

These are just a few of the changes coming in early 2023. In the meantime, we continue to keep the community free of charge. If you would like to invite an organization to join you on the platform, please feel free to invite them to sign up at https://app.orgmatch.com/

Thank you for putting your trust in us as we build our community. We could not have come this far without you, and we look forward to continuing to work together to make a positive impact in the world.

Yours,

Team Orgmatch
