How Does Crowdfunding Work?

1. Create

Our easy-to-use fundraiser template allows you to create an effective home page for your campaign. Show potential donors how they can help by telling your story, uploading pictures and videos, and posting updates.

2. Share

Activate your social network. With just a few clicks, you can spread the word of your fundraiser to friends, family and other potential donors through Facebook, Twitter, email and other channels.

3. Collect

All donations to your fundraiser are transferred into your account as soon as they’re received. We provide Free Fundraising, which means we don’t charge a thing. The donation processor does, however, take 2.9%, plus $.30 per transaction.
