MicroGiving Acquired by DonorCommunity

It looks like John Ferber, co-founder of Domain Holdings and also co-founder of Advertising.com (sold to AOL), has made another exit from a company he started. MicroGiving has been acquired by DonorCommunity. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

According to a press release this morning:

“DonorCommunity, Inc., developers of an innovative cloud computing software platform for nonprofit fundraising and advocacy, announced today that it has acquired the assets of the Micro Giving Foundation.

These assets include MicroGiving.com, a personal fundraising website with an online community of more than 50,000 people and will provide uninterrupted service and support to their associated clients and partners. The private transaction formally closed on November 1.”

Donor Community operates fundraising software for non-profits and organizations, and it seems that this is a pretty good fit for them, since they will have access to many donors and non-profits that used the MicroGiving platform to raise funds.

MicroGiving is a crowd funding platform for non-profits that was started by John Ferber in 2009.
