Ok, so clearly we are the best way to build an app. But why build an app?

The benefits of an app are not endless, but it is close. From being able to live chat with users, to having them check-in to locations that are verified through the GPS on their phone - so much more becomes possible when you offer your program participants or members an app to engage with your organization’s programs and content. With one click they can open up a portal to their team, see targeted content just for them, answer poll questions and earn points - a rich and dynamic experience that will keep them engaged for the long term.

Now is the time to grow your audience with mobile!


Do you want to be where your program participants are? Your MilkCrate app allows your users to engage at all times.

Emails, websites, phone calls - are not as effective. A push notification gets 7x the open rate.

We already have seen way more engagement with our own app than we did with facebook.

With expertly designed engagement features…


Turn your programs, content, activities, surveys, events and more into an engaging experience.

After years of building apps, we have learned what users find most engaging, allowing us to create the the features you need.

That communicate directly with users!


Your app is powered by a tailored and easy to use dashboard. There you can create new content in your app, add new events, launch new surveys, and more.

It is also where you fire off push notifications to motivate immediate action or share information. You can talk to all users, segmented groups, or even a single person.

Being able to send timely notifications to our program participants, and have them chat with each other - these are essential tools for our success.
— Liz Brode, Executive Director at B Inspired


And you can finally track users’ data & export for comprehensive reports.


With MilkCrate you get your own data display of how users are engaging with your program app in both real-time and tailored charts.

See how well your program is doing, adapt based on what works best and move successfully towards your goals.

Seeing our teens checking in at museums showed their engagement as real data for the first time. Priceless
— Michael Norris, Program Director at STAMP


So that you can show real impact to stakeholders.


Your goals are clear to all users and everyone is working towards them together.

With the power of the community to reach the same goals, your program succeeds in making a real impact.

Meaningful data can then be used to align stakeholders, increase fundraising, and increase chances for grant funding.
