Crowdfunding - How It Works

Crowdfunding - For Fundraisers

Raising funds through YouCaring couldn’t be easier. You can create your free online fundraiser page and payment portal in less than 5 minutes. Then, share it with friends and family to start raising money today.

Just follow these simple steps.


1. Create

Write a description of who you’re raising money for and why it’s so important. Including pictures and videos is a great way to encourage support. 


2. Share

Use our Promotion Tools to spread the word to friends, family and other potential donors via Facebook, Twitter and email. Post regular updates to inspire and motivate donors and keep money coming in.


3. Collect

Donations to your fundraiser are transferred into your PayPal or WePay account as soon as they’re received. We don’t take a single cent of your donations. YouCaring is financed exclusively by voluntary contributions made specifically to support our site, making it the only truly free website of its kind.


4. Help Others

If you know someone who could use assistance raising funds for a cause they care about, tell them about Join us in making the world a better place!

Crowdfunding - For Donors

YouCaring makes donating simple and secure.

Just go to the fundraiser’s page and click “Give Now.” Your donation will be processed through PayPal or WePay, with the money forwarded to the fundraiser´s account right away. YouCaring does not charge for using our site, but the credit card processors will deduct their charges directly, usually 2.9% + $.30 per transaction.

We use encryption technology to keep your personal data secure and never sell information about our users, so you don’t have to worry about being contacted by other fundraisers. In fact, we won’t even share your contact information with the person you donate to unless you specifically give us permission.

So, go ahead. Support the cause or person you care about now! 

Please note: If your donation is made to an individual rather than a non-profit organization, it may not be tax deductible.

This is how it all works!
