Cancerfonden winner of Enfo’s sustainability initiative
During the spring 2021, Enfo announced an opportunity for organizations to obtain a digital pro bono solution aimed at contributing to a better world. Of the applications received, Cancerfonden (the Swedish Cancer Society) has been named the winner. Working alongside Cancerfonden, Enfo will produce a solution that develops the user experience for donors and thereby also supports the continued work of cancer research.
At Enfo’s digital event “It’s all about integration” on June 9, Cancerfonden was announced as the winner of Enfo’s sustainability initiative, through which an organization is awarded a tailored pro bono project. Cancerfonden is an independent, non-profit fundraising organization that, through donations from both individuals and companies, helps to fund Swedish cancer research. Other important tasks include driving public opinion and spreading knowledge about how, through conscious lifestyle choices, we can reduce the risk of developing cancer.
The work of designing and implementing a customized application for Cancerfonden will begin in the autumn, and has the overall goal of supporting the work aimed at promoting cancer research. Architecture and design will be carried out in close collaboration with Cancerfonden, in order to meet their specific requirements and needs.
Enfo is one of the Nordic region’s leading players in areas such as data management and integration solutions. The pro bono offer was initiated with the aim of offering this expertise free of charge to an organization that is in need of integration and that contributes to a better world.
“Working together, we are achieving our vision of defeating cancer. However, just as in other industries and sectors, the rapid developments taking place within digitalization are placing new demands on our fundraising activities. As a result, we are naturally pleased to have the opportunity to take part of Enfo’s expertise in the fields of integration and application development, which is making it possible to create a digital solution that will strengthen us in our work,” says Ulrika Årehed Kågström, Secretary General of Cancerfonden.
“One in three people develop cancer, but everyone suffers, which is what makes the work of Cancerfonden so important. The fact that we are able to contribute to this work through our specialist knowledge is of course incredibly rewarding for us,” says Kristina Lid at Enfo, who is responsible for the project and was one of the initiators.
