Sponsorship Program for Seniors & Their Pets

Save to Favorites

HOSPETS INC

Our non profit supports the elderly and their pets. Many of our elderly clients have a very restricted income and need assistance with the needs of their pet. We match Hospets supporters with the seniors in need, allowing them to Sponsor a senior and their pet by buying specific items requested by the senior. Currently we are tracking all of this with Cognito Forms, spreadsheets and individual social media postings.

We are hoping someone can help us find a way for our supporters to view a listing of the seniors in need. The listing would include a first name, city, zipcode, age of senior and their need. The supporter would select the senior they would like to help. Upon selecting the senior, the supporter would need to give their own name, phone and email and then all of the details for the senior they selected would be emailed to them (this info would include identifying info that was originally hidden in the selection list). Once the senior is selected, they would be removed from the selection list so they are not able to be selected more than once.

The format would need to be user friendly, many of our supporters have limited computer skills and would also need to have some visual appeal as it would be heavily promoted via social media. We used signup genius in the past and liked the look of it but having to manually enter everything was too time consuming and the limited information available for each senior was problematic
