About Fundraise Up

Fundraise Up is a cloud-based donation management platform designed to help nonprofits collect, track, and manage funds offered by patrons. Features include ACH payment processing, donor details, A/B testing, automated emails, fraud detection, and permission management.

Fundraise Up provides built-in customizable UI components such as CTA buttons, forms, donation cards, goal thermometer, and more, allowing users to configure and embed custom codes on existing websites. The AI-powered application enables team members to analyze website visitors through browser and device footprints, site activity, and donation history, and determine an optimal donation amount for them. Donors can use self-service portals to update profile information, save payment methods, manage recurring plans, and download tax receipts.

It offers integration with various third-party platforms including Salesforce CRM, Kindful, Google Analytics, Adobe Analytics, Stripe, PayPal, and 360MatchPro. Fundraise Up also helps supervisors monitor expired credit card or failed payments, and receive notifications about successful or failed recurring donations. Organizations can manage all local and international sub-accounts, route funds directly to bank accounts, and manage multiple chapter or affiliate charities.

Overall I was suspicious but optimistic. I'm so glad that Maria, on a whim, decided to go with this platform, even if it put a lot of pressure on me to figure it out at the time.

Pros

I love the ease of use and the adaptability it has. We've been able to increase the revenue of our crowdsourcing campaigns, as well as our general fundraising.

Cons

Um.. nothing?!

The only thing really is lack of integration with our database, but that's not their fault whatsoever.

Response from Fundraise Up

Thank you for your kind comments! We love working with your organization. We do have more CRM integrations on our roadmap, so stick with us! :)

Donors love it

Reviewed on 2021/02/02

Pros

We are in the business of bringing joy to our donors. Some (including a Board Member who is herself in Development) have actually reached out to us to tell us how much they enjoyed the checkout process. And I am confident we are raising more money thanks to the intelligent features: visual cues to nudge the donor to give monthly, suggested giving amounts, customizable checkout questions (about 30% of donors are telling me how they discovered us and why they are giving), integration with Double the Donation makes it SO easy for the donor to indicate an employer match (we've gone from 0 matches to 32, and some of those are recurring gifts!), the ability to filter and search for all of this data SO easily. It's a joy to use! At first we got FundraiseUp as an integration when we migrated to Kindful (which has integrations with Mail Chimp and DonorSearch - wouldn't you like to see the donor's wealth screening right in his or her profile?) but I never imagined how much we would love it. Make yourself and your donors happy...and Kindful is now merging with Bloomerang, which has the best education platform for fundraisers (IMO).

Cons

Our [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] balked at first at the 3% fee, but we managed to convince him that the ROI would be positive - and it is. 84% of our donors have covered the fees. You can't put a price on making donors happy. It is the foundation of donor retention. Period!

One of our top ten favorite products. It's exceptionally built, has a fantastic team behind it, and has quickly become integral to our business.

Pros

Once deployed, the ease of management is exceptional. As of today, we have Fundraise Up deployed across three platforms, two applications, and two websites. We are able to customize how our button appears, what campaign it links to, what the copy is, etc. all from one dashboard. Their donation optimization and campaign tracking are similarly exceptional. More than anything, their customer service is above and beyond. We're less than a month in and they've already added two things to their product just for us.

Cons

Deploying the Fundraise Up code is easy as pie. Integrating it into our virtual economy on the other hand took some doing. The thing we liked least what how unprepared we were for something as fantastic as the Fundraise Up platform.

Response from Fundraise Up

Hi Brian, I'm glad you've found the platform to be exceptional! Our team's here for you. Thanks for the opportunity to help you and the co-op grow.

pricey but easy

Reviewed on 2020/07/18

Pros

People find it easy to use and it has an attractive and simple design

Cons

People are put off by the expense. I have had people email me and say they don't want to donate online because of the cost. As a small non-profit, we previously used a free software that was not as simple or visual, but avoided hefty fees.

Response from Fundraise Up

Thank you for your review, Liz! As you likely are aware, we are 100% performance-based pricing. We don't earn unless you do. Taking a look at your account we see over 85% of donations have all fees (ours and credit card) covered, meaning it's paid for itself *and* most of your credit card fees (which otherwise would have been out-of-pocket). Best-in-class tech can cost a bit more, but *must* pull its weight, which we hope we are doing for your organization. Tip: Be sure to make the "cover fees" optional if you have a sensitive donor base! :)

We were able to robustly implement FRU literally overnight, in a frantic attempt to get a campaign page up and running for an upcoming fundraising event. We knew immediately that this software platform and the incredible staff at FRU were on another level entirely. In our option, they have no competition. Since that overnight success story, we have been singing FRU's praises and find ourselves getting upset at least once a day, knowing that other great nonprofit orgs are stuck using any other donation platform. If you are one of those nonprofits out there not using FRU, it's the equivalent of still owning a pager instead of a cellular phone. Get with it!

Pros

- UI/UX - Elegant, intuitive, and efficient, there is not a better looking platform in the game today
- Elements - This is the software's most brilliant feature and is truly unique to the industry
- Checkout - Backed by science and machine learning, this checkout form can generate outsized returns
- Branding - Whether at checkout, via elements, thank you emails/receipts, your brand will be prevalent
- Dashboard - This goes with the UI/UX, but it is so clean and easy to track...a legit dashboard for everyone
- Recurring Donor Focus - The software is constantly working hard to increase recurring donors
- Recurring Donor Migration - This feature is amazing and free, allowing us to auto-magically migrate
- Double the Donation Integration - The way Match 360 is integrated into checkout is a beautiful thing
- Everything else I'm forgetting...

Cons

I don't have any cons at this time. FRU knows exactly who they are as a company and a software platform. They live by specific company guardrails that allow them to focus on improving true pain points and challenges for their nonprofit clients. There is no show with them or gimmicks...simply the best!

Response from Fundraise Up

Aaron, we're glad we get to partner with you and OLASTEO! Thanks so much for being a champion for good tech and an advocate for Fundraise Up. Looking forward to serving you further in 2021 and beyond.
