Globally Used Sponsorship and Community Investment Software Continues Improvement for Network of Brands

MONTREAL & MIAMI – SPONSORIUM International, the leading sponsorship and community investment management software provider, as part of its annual international conference has announced several new features which their network of users will appreciate.

Most notable is a new relationship with GuideStar, the world’s largest source of nonprofit information. PerforMind™ users now benefit from GuideStar Charity Check, a unique verification service that enables PerforMind™ users to check nonprofit validity and legitimacy directly in the tool.

GuideStar is thrilled to work with SPONSORIUM and for GuideStar Charity Check to be integrated into the premiere community investment evaluation system. PerforMind™ users can now have peace of mind knowing that GuideStar Charity Check is the only product in the world that is 100 percent compliant with all IRS requirements for determining a nonprofit’s eligibility to receive tax-deductible contributions,” said Tim Reifschneider, director of business development for Guidestar.

“PerforMind™ is the most widely used tool in the world for managing sponsorships and community investment. It was a natural for us to partner with GuideStar, as they are the best at what they do, offering our users enhanced verification services,” Paul Pednault, President and Founder of SPONSORIUM shared. “We look forward to an eventual global relationship.”

SPONSORIUM also announced new features in the PerforMind™ tool, such as the ability to create and manage large format surveys, Multi-Party Evaluations, and increased flexibility.

“The PerforMind™ application has always been extremely flexible because we respect the abilities of our users; they are the ones in control. We now offer them the capability to manage an even a larger array of functions related to their sponsorship and community investment activities,” stated Mathieu Vezeau, Chief Technology Officer at SPONSORIUM.
