How It Works

Discover What Makes FreeFunder One of the Best Online Fundraising Platforms for You!

There are many fundraising platforms out there, so choosing the right one for your crowdfunding campaign can be overwhelming. While we can't speak for other fundraising websites, we can say FreeFunder offers a user-friendly approach that will allow anyone to create an effective campaign that allows them to raise money.

What makes FreeFunder one of the best fundraising platforms? There are many reasons! First, remember that FreeFunder is one of the few free donation platforms on the market. Even some of the best fundraising platforms for nonprofits charge their users fees when raising funds for their crowdfunding campaigns.

However, thanks to FreeFunder's free fundraising software for nonprofits and personal causes, you will be able to create your personal fundraising page and keep all the money raised. That certainly takes a weight off your shoulders!

The Number #1 Most Frequently Asked Question

People ask all the time - if FreeFunder is really free, how does it stay in business?

The answer? In true crowdfunding style, FreeFunder relies on the voluntary donations of campaign contributors! We do not take any part of the donation to your campaign. Instead, when someone is making a donation they will see a recommended donation to FreeFunder as well. The person donating can choose to donate a small amount to FreeFunder, or they can click on that recommended donation link and change the donation to zero. Some people donate zero, but a lot of people are happy to donate a small amount, which is what keeps FreeFunder going and allows us to never charge a platform fee to our fundraisers!

Yes! If you've been wondering how to create a fundraising website for an individual, FreeFunder makes it easy to understand. Like other team fundraising platforms, you can set up your personal fundraising ideas on FreeFunder, share your campaign, and wait until the donations come.

Generally speaking, you can set your fundraising campaign for yourself or for friends and family, whichever needs it. Once you browse FreeFunder's "Discover" page, you'll notice people making fundraising efforts for:

All that's left to do is input the information of your personal fundraiser, add your details for your Stripe account, and start raising money for free! Please note that Stripe, the payment processor, has a 2.9% + $0.30 fee per transaction.

Thankfully, you won't have to pay more than that to set up your fundraising page, as FreeFunder doesn't take any platform fees.

Do You Truly Need a Personal Fundraising Website?

Most people look at fundraisers only as a way to take care of a monetary need, and that's fine. However, there are more benefits you can get from using our online fundraising site.

First, setting up personal campaigns will allow you to make an impact online. You have a better chance of getting your story known, which not only will help you reach your goal but also motivate others in a similar situation to do the same thing.

Another great benefit from raising funds online is that you will create a sense of community. Once people learn about your story and fundraising ideas, you will indirectly unite people working toward the same goal.

Some people even share your campaigns on your behalf, which makes it easier to get them noticed online. All of this will increase your chances of reaching your fundraising goal for yourself, your friends, and your family.

Setting up a free fundraising page will greatly benefit your campaign, especially if you're setting it up for friends and family.

How Can You Raise Funds Efficiently?

Setting up your campaign to raise funds is only the first step toward reaching your goal. There are other factors that could affect how fast you raise money.

Overall, you must do your best to be strategic to ensure people connect with your story and are willing to donate. Simply asking for money without any further reason will not help.

One of the most important steps to follow is to tell an amazing and compelling story. If people aren't moved by your story and reason to raise money, they won't donate or share the campaign.

FreeFunder is a platform to raise money for personal causes, so you now have a free option to set up your campaign without having to worry about the money you already have saved up for your goals.
