For Fundraisers

Whether raising money for yourself or on behalf of any valid non-profit in the US, we offer Fundraisers a unique set of features to engage donors and increase donations.

Sweepstakes

No one else offers do-it-yourself features to run a sweepstakes drawing. You don't need us to help, you don't need a big-name celebrity involved to pull it off. Do it all on your own, it's just that easy. (But we're always happy to help if you want us to.)

Drawings Are Better

Why run an auction and run the risk of just one low bid for an item when you can run a Sweepstakes Drawing? Every donation enters the Donor into the Drawing.

One Or More Prizes

It's up to you to decide what to give away. You can have just one Prize, or you could have a Grand Prize, 10 Second Place prizes, and 50 Third Place prizes. Or whatever combo you can think of.

Automated For You

You just set up the details of the Sweepstakes Drawing, and we do the rest. We'll close the fundraiser on the day you tell us, run the drawing for you, and notify the winner(s).

Donations Available Immediately

Unlike Kickstarter and some of the other fundraising platforms out there, you don't have to meet any goals in order to collect your donations; money flows directly into your bank accounts.

Digital Downloads

Digital Downloads are a great way for artists and bands to raise money for themselves or a charity they care about by rewarding their fans with something unique.

  •  Can be a song, album, PDF, any digital file
  •  Automatically delivered after donation
  •  Expires if not downloaded within a day
  •  Counts downloads per-donor to ensure links aren't being shared

Viral Challenges

Allow donors to challenge their friends to support your fundraiser. They tag their friends on Facebook and Twitter and challenge them to donate.

Those friends in turn challenge more friends, and so on, creating a viral sensation.

Social Influencers

We are the only platform that tracks social sharing all the way back to its source, so you can know which of your donors has the biggest influence on others.

Unique Sharing Options

Along with the traditional sharing links to encourage donors to tell their friends, family, and colleagues about your fundraiser, we also track those shares by donor, so you know who is sharing where and generating interest.

Data For Your Next Fundraiser

Once you know who your Social Influencers are, you can use that information to make sure you reach out to them for your next round of fundraising.

PBS-style Offer Levels

  • Poster

  • T-Shirt

  • Signed Album

    Includes: Poster, T-Shirt

Offers can entice a donor to increase their donation to reach the next level and earn that Reward.

An offer can be something you ship to donors, or something they download
Set as many rewards per offer at whatever donation amounts you choose
Offers can include multiple Rewards to ensure donors receive everything in the lower offers

Reward Inventory

Manage Available Quantities

If the Reward you're offering has a limited quantity (i.e. you can only afford to have 500 t-shirts printed), we will decrease that available quantity as donations come in, and let donors know if something is no longer available.

Adjust As You Go

You can always increase or decrease the available quantity for any reward whenever you want. So if you decide to order more of the stickers, just let us know how many more are available.

Share Rewards Across Fundraisers

Re-use the same Reward on multiple fundraisers. That single Reward has its own Available Quantity, so as donations come in to each Fundraiser, that single pool of inventory will be reduced.

Lock Rewards Like Ticketmaster

When a donor chooses which reward they would like to claim, we reserve that reward for the donor for 10 minutes. During those 10 minutes, that claim is locked, guaranteeing them the Reward is still available and doesn't get claimed by another donor before supplies run out.

For Donors

We are the only Fundraiser Marketplace that allows you to win Prizes and earn Rewards for charitable giving.

Charitable Giving

Search The Database

Our database of verified US non-profits has thousands and thousands of charities, so if you have a particular cause in mind, we'll likely be able to send the donation their way.

Split The Donation

If you choose to support more than one non-profit, you can decide how to split your donation between them. Just keep in mind that each non-profit must receive a minimum of $15.
