Silicon Planet and KindMark provide nonprofits with a turnkey online donation system.

LOS ANGELES, CA. — Silicon Planet, a provider of turnkey software solutions for nonprofits, has formed a partnership with KindMark, Inc., of San Francisco, Calif. KindMark is the dominant provider of electronic donation processing infrastructure for nonprofit organizations. Now, any nonprofit can build and manage a Web site, accept donations online, and have full donation processing and reporting.

KindMark provides a complete donations infrastructure for national nonprofit organizations. KindMark has an exclusive marketing and operating alliance with PipeVine, a nonprofit organization based in San Francisco, the largest provider of pledge collection, processing, distribution and reporting services in the United States. KindMark has developed an electronic gateway that, when paired with front-end donation web pages from Silicon Planet CMS 2001, provides unlimited, inexpensive donation processing, whether by credit card or by check.

Through the partnership, Silicon Planet, Inc. will provide KindMark’s donation processing services to its current and future clients. Using both CMS 2001 and KindMark’s processing, nonprofits will not need expensive merchant accounts, and will have minimal processing costs.

"Nonprofits need complete fundraising solutions. Silicon Planet's CMS 2001 provides everything a nonprofit needs to get the word out, attract donors, and invite donations, while our technology at KindMark makes processing those donations painless and cost-effective," said Tom Ruppaner, CEO of KindMark. "Together, KindMark and Silicon Planet deliver a one-stop solution for all organizations that must raise money."

"The two biggest hurdles for taking online donations are building a site to accept donations, and processing those donations once they arrive. Every nonprofit organization wants to accept donations at their own site. Together, Silicon Planet and KindMark provide this capability," said Joshua Marks, CEO of Silicon Planet.

Silicon Planet’s software combines Web site development with database technology, allowing nonprofit staff members to focus on building community relationships without having to manage complex technology tools. Silicon Planet’s recently launched CMS 2001 product suite adds advanced Web site development, event and staff management, donation processing, web-based communications, and full integration with Microsoft Exchange. CMS 2001 installs locally or can be managed via an ASP model.
