YouCaring is the leader in free online fundraising, and we are dedicated to helping people help others. We believe kindness is powerful and by leveraging today’s technology, we can help the world by making the best of humanity’s most valuable untapped resource: compassion.
Here’s a quick introduction to compassionate crowdfunding and how easily you can use it to find help for personal and charitable causes—and fundraise for good!
What Makes Compassionate Crowdfunding Unique
Crowdfunding is the practice of raising money online for a project or cause. By using the power of social networks, people generate awareness and donations from all over the world. Typically, fundraising websites charge you 5 percent to 9 percent just to use their platforms.
We’re not your typical crowdfunding site. Our aim is to change the world for good—and to do it for free. Pioneered by YouCaring, compassionate crowdfunding is free online fundraising for personal and charitable causes. It is unique in supporting humanitarian causes, bringing kindness and community to those in need, and never charging anyone to raise money.
The result: more money finds its way to the right places, doing more good for more people. Together, YouCaring supporters have donated nearly $250 million—and our free online fundraising platform has saved fundraisers more than $12 million in fees.

Free Online Fundraising Helps You Keep More of Your Donations
When you need help, every dollar counts. We help you keep more of the money you raise by charging no site fees.
In order to accept online donations (on any fundraising site), you need to select a donation processor for your fundraiser. Processors charge small fees that cover the costs of handling financial transactions safely and securely.
None of the processor fees support our business. By operating solely on donations, we ensure that no one is charged for fundraising on our site. We are grateful to each person who helps us continue our mission of helping more people do more good for free. To learn more, visit our free fundraising page.
