Because of that, I often get approached by someone who wants to start their own non-profit org. It’s worked for non-profits like Start From Seed, an organization that provides comprehensive doula services and childbirth education. In addition to raising money, the non-profit posted updates of their new space, photos of newborns that were helped, a wish list and details of how money was spent. Between donations and other fundraising, Start From Seed raised enough to pay rent a year in advance, which eases its financial burden.
Non-profits like Start From Seed say this kind of fundraising is fast, simple and an inexpensive method to raise money.
In addition to an easy-to-use platform, this site offers Crowdfunding 101, a free nine-part email course for non-profits and social entrepreneurs. One of the more organized sites, Crowdrise divides fundraising by a variety of categories like animal welfare or education. Billing itself as the world’s largest online campaigning platform, Causes currently only allows registered 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) nonprofits to fundraise on its site.
This site allows non-profits to host a Giving Day, which is a 24-hour online fundraising competition in which Razoo trains you to reach supporters via social media, email, events and more.
Most of these sites keep between 3 and 5 percent of the funds your nonprofit raises, and there are fees collected by credit card processors, so be sure to read the FAQs on each site carefully.


Wendy Burt-Thomas is a full-time freelance writer with four books and thousands of published articles to her credit. I also provide a crowdfunding site for non profits or anyone … I charge nothing to use it, only fee paid are to paypal. Send email newsletters, special offers, and invitations to keep your customers coming back again and again.
Of course not all for-profits are like this.  But, if the bottom line is making money, sometimes it comes at the expense of other things. So, if you are a student with a passion, a desire to lead, a yearning to bring about change and have a natural tendency to truly care, you should consider working for a non-profit or social impact organization.

It’s also a convenient way to generate media buzz about events, recruit volunteers, and spread awareness about your campaign on social media.
There are plenty of great success stories on this site, including the more than $5,000 raised for The Supply, a nonprofit that builds schools in Nairobi.


In addition to fundraising, campaigns can be used to create petitions and ask people to take pledges, such as Toyota’s campaign to make child passenger safety a priority.
If you set up a fixed account and don’t hit your goal, any money raised is returned to the donor. Wherever you end up 5, 10, 15 years from now, having had even one experience working at a non-profit will give you what you won’t be able to buy with any amount of money. A proud ENFP, Anne enjoys helping students explore their career options through various assessment tools and workshops and is a freelance Zumba instructor. Crowdfunding websites showcase and provide financial transactions for individuals, groups, businesses or non-profits attempting to get a large number of people to donate small amounts of money for their project or cause.
If you set up a flexible account and don’t hit your goal, you keep the money raised but Indiegogo keeps a higher percentage of your funds.
Registered 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) do receive discounts, but you’ll want to crunch the numbers. Excerpts and links may be used, provided that full and clear credit is given to VerticalResponse with appropriate and specific direction to the original content.
