  • Easily reach your community through photos, videos and posted updates

Don’t wait any longer to meet your church fundraising goals!

Does your church have an exciting project in mind? Whether fundraising for a service trip, group retreat or youth group program, we can help your religious organization meet its financial needs. Crowdfunding online allows the campaign creators to outline their goals, explain their expenses and showcase an upcoming project through text, photos and videos. It provides another platform for community leaders to include church members in events and projects, and it helps to keep families in the loop about what’s going on in their community. In our increasingly digital age, online crowdfunding is an effective tool for church leaders looking to access the financial resources that will strengthen communal bonds while also maintaining important traditions.

Church Fundraising - Tip 1

Church Fundraising - Tip 2

The Importance of Connections

Once your fundraiser is live, you may receive donations and well wishes from other like-minded spiritual communities. YouCaring then becomes a platform to interact with and create connections between other groups in the midst of exciting projects, allowing you to cheer each other on, keep in touch, and offer support or guidance. YouCaring can be a place for cooperation and forging relationships that transcend geography.
Church Fundraising - Tip 3

The Ease of Free Fundraising

Youth ministry can be expensive. While a youth group is simple and humble in its conception, and there are many rewarding youth groups that make the most of limited resources, incidental and basic operational costs can be daunting. The Youth Ministry Architects espouses a goal of around $1,000 per youth per year in a youth group budget. Crowdfunding can be an effective way of covering costs for churches coming up short on funds.

Church Fundraiser - Testimonial 1 - YWAM CAMBRIDGE STAFF
Thank you all so much for your prayers. We arrived in Tetovo yesterday and settled in for the final leg of this amazing journey. Today we are getting a feel for the city and possibly doing some cafe/park ministry as well as planning out what our days will look like.

I believe it will! It's amazing to see how God has already provided for Ruth and I to travel to Ethiopia & Spain this year, and I think He will provide for us to go to India as well. It's been an incredible experience to see all this happen in our first year of marriage.
