Press release from: Power Public Relations, LLC

Dallas, TX – September 17, 2012 – Telligent is proud to announce that its customer, UK-based Macmillan Cancer Support, has been shortlisted with only five other nonprofit organizations in the website category of the 2012 Third Sector Excellence Awards for the charity’s innovative use of its online public-facing community. Macmillan’s online community is designed to enhance the charity’s existing cancer support initiatives.

The project has been shortlisted in recognition of the charity’s use of its community, which is seamlessly incorporated into the site using Telligent Community. The community enables members to connect with peers, share and discuss their experiences, get more involved in the charity’s work, and feel less alone in the fight against cancer. In working with Telligent to integrate the online community offering into its existing website, Macmillan has been able to further its mission to reach and improve the lives of everyone affected by cancer.

“The past twelve months have undoubtedly been difficult for the UK’s third sector,” said Steve Poncini, General Manager of International Business at Telligent. “Public sector budget cuts, coupled with falling donations, have meant that many organizations are looking at new ways to re-engage supporters, as well as drive out unnecessary costs.”

“The Macmillan project is a fantastic example of a charity using social tools to expand its charitable offering,” continued Poncini. “This announcement is a testament to the Macmillan team’s outstanding dedication to helping those affected by cancer.”

The 2012 Third Sector Excellence Awards finalists will be announced at the Lancaster London Hotel on the evening of Thursday, September 27, 2012. To book tickets, visit:
