“With the Good Done Great team’s deep expertise in grant management and international giving, our combined business will lead the next phase of industry growth and CSR program evolution — one defined by simplicity, integration, and impact.”

Barach told The Post and Courier that his company’s 50 employees would remain. The startup expected to reach $5 million in sales for 2017. 

YourCause has experienced significant growth recently. In June, the company said it had increased its Global Good Network by 160 percent in the last two years by adding United Airlines, J. Crew, HCA and others to a client base that already includes AT&T and Dell.

Last year, YourCause bought donor management system, Orange Leap, which it integrated into a platform for nonprofits called NPOconnect. 

With its latest acquisition, YourCause said it will incorporate Good Done Great’s services into its offerings. It plans to roll out an expanded corporate social responsibility platform soon.

“With our combined experience and capabilities, we’re looking forward to expediting our mission and commitment to this space and all those for whom it touches,” Matt Combs, CEO and founder of YourCause, said in a release.
