GoFundMe Charity

Online social fundraising for nonprofits, companies & events

About GoFundMe Charity

CrowdRise is an online fundraising tool for nonprofits, businesses, and events organizers with tools for social fundraising, event planning, ticketing, donations management, custom landing page building, and more. The cloud-based solution was built specifically for nonprofit and event fundraisers, and can be used for organizing and collecting donations for runs, walks, cycles, and other charity events.

With solutions for online social fundraising, nonprofit event fundraising, nonprofit run, walk, and cycle fundraising, and peer-to-peer fundraising, CrowdRise aims to offer a tool to aid collaboration, participation, and giving. The social fundraising module facilitates the creation of branded and customized fundraising campaigns, which can be launched across social media platforms, email, SMS, and more to raise awareness. The SocialAmp sharing tool also optimizes posts and campaign pages to reach more people, and posts are mobile optimized so that viewers get the same experience from any device.

Fundraising pages can be setup and customized with company branding, logos, colors, images, and text, and pages can combine registration, donation giving, progress tracking, and more. A custom branded event page allows donors to make pledges, pay electronically, sign up for events, and access all information about the campaign. Participants can register for fundraising events, such as walks, runs, and cycles, as individuals or as teams, and leaderboards provide gamification for teams. CrowdRise integrates with third party registration platforms including Eventbrite and Active.com in order to facilitate registrations, and CRM tools such as Salesforce can be connected for managing attendee and donor data.

    Pros

    Our nonprofit uses CrowdRise for our largest fundraiser in the winter. Our supporters get to be involved in our fundraising and have their own space to do it. The tools that CrowdRise offers are easy to use and assist in soliciting donations from family and friends.

    Cons

    The CrowdRise layout seems to be constantly updating and changing, which is a good thing, but some users often get confused and have to reach out for help. Luckily, their customer support is amazing.

    At the end of the day, we decided to switch to Classy as it was a more integrated fundraising platform. Crowdrise didn't have enough general donation processing/management tools that we wanted in a fundraising platform.

    Pros

    We liked to use crowdrise for individual fundraising campaigns centered around 1 specific goal or event. Our fundraisers used it for raising money as they did a race, for a specific program, or for raising money to go on an international missions trip. It's great for college students to create peer to peer campaigns for example.

    Cons

    I did not like how this integrated with our website (or rather the lack thereof).

    customer service is nice when you are paying for it, otherwise you are pretty much on your own and unable to customize much.

    Pros

    It is already set up and you can run it with ability to give to your cause. It works for our peer-to-peer fundraising for all our endurance events for now.

    Cons

    Trying to customize and link to partner systems becomes tricky since they want to promote and work on being an all in one system.

    We have used Crowdrise the last couple of years for our 5k fundraising. I have to say, their customer service and account specialist teams go above and beyond to provide the best service possible. Whenever I need anything changed, edited, updated, etc., they are immediately on top of it and always send a confirmation when it is completed. Even when my account specialist is out of the office, they have a team ready to jump in to solve any problems. While they do have a platform without a monthly fee (just a % on transactions), I have found that upgrading to the Tre plan was well worth the minimal monthly fee. It lowers the % and you get an assigned account manager that is able to help customize your page however you need. They are a great team and are doing great work.
