SAN FRANCISCO, California – October 1, 2014 – Vidyard, the global leader in video marketing platform technology, today announced the Vidyard Impact Program (VIP) for Nonprofits, a new initiative that enables nonprofits to take advantage of the Vidyard Videos enables marketing platform that helps you to achieve your business goals through the strategic use of online videos.

Whether it’s videos to explain the cause or showcase real people who have been touched by their programs, many nonprofits see online videos as an effective tool for engaging with members and donors and raising awareness about their nonprofit programs raise. With access to the right video marketing tools and data, these companies can optimize their video content to not only increase its reach and impact, but also to help them turn views into key actions.

“We recognize the importance of nonprofits and the incredible impact they have on communities around the world,” said Michael Litt, CEO and co-founder of Vidyard. “With the Vidyard Impact Program, we’re committed to helping nonprofits unlock the potential of online video to connect with their audiences and increase membership and donations.”

“Video has become an incredible content medium to tell our stories and show how we are making a real difference for students and communities around the world,” said Greg Overholt, executive director of Students Offering Support, a student-led nonprofit Association that provides tutoring services to help collect grades, thereby raising money to ultimately build roofs for children in Latin America and help them gain access to quality education. “With Vidyard, we have the tools and data we need to get the most out of our video content. It’s no longer about using videos just to tell our story, it’s about changing the way we interact with our audiences and expanding the scope and impact of our services. “

Vidyard makes it easy for nonprofits to get started with online video and use advanced tools to track and optimize video performance – and convert views into action. VIP members can use the Vidyard platform to:
