Fundraising Platform for Everyone (even us)

A new fundraising platform called Fundraise asked if I would check it out and share it – I was interested because it was a platform anyone can use. Even us. Families with special needs can use Fundraise for the non-profits they support as well as other efforts – say, for a family struggling to pay for medical expenses. It can be used for an event used for fundraising.

Go ahead and check it out here at their site,, Here are examples of some of the fundraising campaigns on their site…customizable and so easy! Year of the Dragon, Baby Jade, Frosted Fall, Michael Joyce

I just took the (honestly) quick tour and if you can set up a password and upload a photo you can use Fundraise. Take a tour here! Here’s what they say…

Our solution allows organizations access to the most powerful set of social fundraising tools available on the market. We provide a lightweight, scaleable, fully hosted redundant cloud solution that allows organizations to create unlimited fundraisers, activities and events. Our platform is completely integrated into Facebook open-graph and works on every mobile device, from fundraiser creation to donation processing.

I hope you go and check it out…I think it could make fundraising for our community really easy. And I’m all for anything that makes life easier on us!
