Free Mobile Application Launched at United Way

Users play, connect and win prizes

United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County has partnered with San Antonio-based The Sonar Company to launch a new mobile application. The free app centralizes the nonprofit’s information and engages and challenges users through a game point-earning system used to redeem prizes with various value ranges.

With access to games, trivia, surveys, United Way news, stories, events and volunteer opportunities; guest users have the opportunity to play for points and rankings that translate into swag and prizes.

“We wanted to connect with our donors and the community in this fun, informative and interactive way,” said Chris Martin, United Way President and CEO. “Wherever you are, the app allows you to enjoy spending time with our frequently updated content and be rewarded with prizes for playing.”

As part of the rollout’s Give4Good promotion, those who download the app and make a donation to United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County ($200, $150, $100, $50, or $25 levels) will receive prize packages with tickets to local attractions like SeaWorld, Schlitterbahn, Six Flags, Natural Bridge Caverns, LEGOLAND, the San Antonio Zoo, as well as museums and other local entertainment destinations. A $200 donation, for example, will be rewarded with a prize package valued at $530.

The app’s homepage brings together United Way’s information and provides a donate button and volunteer button, making registering for opportunities and supporting the nonprofit’s strategic work very user friendly. This new app also offers a unique revenue stream opportunity for the organization outside its traditional fundraising model. “It truly is a win-win for users and sponsors while supporting the community,” Martin said.

“Working with United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County, a valued community partner providing health and human services to so many across the region, is an opportunity for us to help connect them with their target audience and provide the community with a centralized, user-friendly platform,” said Roy Terracina, Interim CEO of The Sonar Company.

Advertising or sponsorship opportunities are available by contacting digital@unitedwaysatx.org or calling (210) 352-7025. The free app is available for downloading on iPhone (Apple App Store) and Android (Google Play) platforms. For a preview, please click here.
