Why Fundraise Online?
Harness the power of online fundraising with GoFundraise!
Fundraising is traditionally a high cost and resource-intensive exercise and now, more then ever, charities and not-for-profit organisations need more effective ways to fundraise. With online fundraising, you can now benefit from a low cost and highly effective fundraising solution.
Empowering people to fundraise
GoFundraise makes it easy for supporters to fundraise on your behalf. Whether it's your own event, a third party event, or even a special occasion your supporters create themselves.
Online fundraising harnesses the power of peer-to-peer marketing, where your supporters use their own social networks to effectively fundraise by reaching a wider audience.
Here's how it works:
- You create and maintain a charity page, which includes images, a profile, and even video content
- Users create a dedicated fundraising page and select you as their chosen charity/cause (your profile is automatically displayed on their page)
- They can then email everybody they know with a direct link to their fundraising page.
- People can donate directly and securely using credit/debit cards (they can even leave a personal message of support!).
- GoFundraise automatically issue donation receipts, provide full donation reports for reconciliation, and funds raised are paid into your account
How do I register my organisation?
