FreeFunder was created in order to provide a completely free option for people who are raising money for personal causes. We recognized that many people were creating fundraisers to meet very important needs, and they were losing 5% of everything donated to them!
Instead of charging fees and taking money from people who really need it, we decided it would be much better to trust in the goodness of people, and let people voluntarily donate whatever they would like! FreeFunder does not take any part of the donations to your fundraiser. Instead, in true crowdfunding style, we give people the option to donate a small amount to FreeFunder if they wish. This is completely voluntary, and it's what makes FreeFunder so special!

When an accidental fire burned through the third floor and attic of an apartment complex, Colleen Fallon wanted to help her friends the Moore Family. After researching different crowd funding platforms, she chose FreeFunder because FreeFunder passes the entire donation on to the Campaign Creator, instead of taking 5% or more as other platforms do.
The Moores were unharmed in the fire, but many of their belongings were lost and they needed help getting resituated. Colleen set a goal amount of $1,482. Within 16 hours, the FreeFunder campaign had blown past that goal, already raising $2,370, as mentioned in this news article. By the end of the campaign, the fundraiser raised more than 300% of the goal amount, providing the Moore Family with $5,165 to help them rebuild.
