2011 was an important year for Artez.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank our clients - who are changing the world for the better, our valued partners and our dedicated employees. All of you have made this the most successful year in our history.
What does success mean to us?
Our global Friendship Powered Fundraising client community consists of over 350 charities from the UK to North America to Australia.
Over $135,000,000 was raised on Artez this year for your important causes.
We've become the sector leader in mobile-optimization of web-based fundraising for charities, developing groundbreaking donation and fundraising experiences on mobile devices. Our iPhone and Android fundraising apps are on iTunes and the Android Marketplace in four different countries.
We were one of 60 developers worldwide selected to participate in first phase of the vital Facebook Open Graph project. This outcome is a Facebook App that will make it easier for your supporters to share their good deeds with their friends.
We introduced 25 innovative social, mobile and web Friendship Powered Fundraising features, and released over 600 product upgrades during the year.
We opened new offices in Boston and Melbourne and grew our team by 23% worldwide to serve you even better in the future.
None of these achievements would be possible without your support and passion for the best in nonprofit technology. I wish you all the best for the Holiday Season and I look forward to our mutual continuing success in 2012.
