Disability Rights Washington was on the hunt for a new online fundraising platform in preparation for their upcoming virtual fundraising event, Breaking Barriers. They thought carefully about elements that were important to them when it came to selecting a new fundraising platform:

  • Data in one place
  • Customizable event pages that are easy to use
  • An integrated thermometer to help drive engagement
  • Straightforward auction platform
  • Cost-effective pricing
  • Accessible interface for a variety of users that may have sensory disabilities


Disability Rights Washington selected Qgiv as their fundraising platform and were able to check off all the boxes on their fundraising platform wish list, including some vital accessibility components that facilitated greater inclusion of all supporters.


Disability Rights Washington raised more than $105,000 through their fundraiser, Breaking Barriers, thanks to Qgiv’s peer-to-peer and auction platforms. They hope to keep some hybrid event components with their next annual Breaking Barriers fundraiser.
