Crowdfunding fundraisers: What you need to know

Our crowdfunding fundraisers are user-friendly, customizable ways to help you generate donations for your cause. We have several flexible options to help you reach your fundraising goals, including:

  • Simple crowdfunding: Create a page to receive donations for your organization. Use this page to share a compelling story about your organization and how donations will be used to further your cause. Add images and videos to further bring your story to life.
  • Crowdfunding with prizes: Encourage people to donate at a higher level by offering merchandise or other incentives at different donation amounts.
  • Crowdfunding with Peer-to-Peer fundraising:  Allow participants to join your fundraiser to help generate donations. This option works well for schools and other organizations that can benefit from people participating without receiving donations per unit of activity, as in a-thon fundraisers.

Types of donations accepted

  • One-time donations allow donors to give a single donation whenever they choose. Donors can make as many one-time donations as they would like.

Promoting your campaign

To begin making progress towards your fundraising goals, spread the word about your crowdfunding experience to as many people as possible. Sharing your fundraiser with the greatest number of potential donors increases exposure and may make others more likely to share your cause with people in their network, too. You can share the link to your fundraiser on social media or send an email to your donors, family, and friends to get the word out.

You can find your fundraising links by going to Fundraisers > Manage Campaigns and click the 3 dots next to the campaign > View Campaign Links.
