Frequently Asked Questions

What is CrowdRise?

CrowdRise is the most innovative, modern crowdfunding platform for charitable causes. The American Red Cross, UNICEF, USO, March of Dimes, Clinton Global Initiative, as well as tens of thousands of smaller non-profits use CrowdRise for peer-to-peer fundraising, event and team fundraising, and creative fundraising campaigns. CrowdRise's core principles are that giving back should be fun, and that non-profits have unprecedented power to leverage their supporters’ capacity for good.

CrowdRise's custom-built platform, seamless integrations, and game theory, as well as the company's proven record of designing effective crowdfunding strategies has positioned itself as the dominant brand in social fundraising.
CrowdRise was founded by actor and activist, Edward Norton, producer and activist Shauna Robertson, and internet entrepreneurs Robert and Jeffrey Wolfe. CrowdRise was named a "Top 25 Global Philanthropist" by Barron's and a "Top Fundraising Website" by Mashable and Forbes. Besides that, CrowdRise isn't all that great.

How does my charity receive the funds?

CrowdRise makes it incredibly fast and easy for your charity to receive its funds. When a donor makes a donation, the funds will be processed by the payment processor that you chose, either Network for Good or WePay. Both are PCI Level 1, secure credit card processing services. WePay sends funds to charities in real time. Network for Good sends payments to charities on the 15th of each month that include all donations made in the previous month.

For example, donations processed in October will be paid on November 15th. You will have access to the CrowdRise Report Center where you can easily reconcile all of the money you receive and access all of the donation data in one place.

Are donations secure?

This will sound really official because we know how important it is. CrowdRise processes donations through Network for Good and WePay. You can choose which processor you want. Both payment processors are PCI Level 1 Compliant (that's the best) and both offer industry-leading Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. Network for Good is a donor advised fund, and a Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance accredited charity that meets all of the BBB standards for charity accountability. They have processed more than $1 billion in donations for over 50,000 charities through their giving system. WePay is based in Palo Alto, CA and processes transactions for over 250,000 merchants. WePay allows for daily, weekly, or monthly electronic transfers of funds.

How does the Pricing Guarantee work?

Like Kiva and DonorsChoose, your donors are given the option to cover your fees. If all your donors choose to cover the fees, every penny you raise will go directly to your cause. If your donors don't cover enough of the fees to bring you to your guaranteed pricing, CrowdRise will make up the difference. For example, if you’re on The Tre plan, then on a $100 donation, you'll keep at least $97 -- probably more but we will guarantee it's at least $97. And, all of this includes credit card fees. So, while nearly every other crowdfunding site will charge you more than 8% in total fees, your fees using CrowdRise will be no more than 3%. And, based on the current data, it’ll probably be under 2%. Amazing, right.

Thousands of charities are taking advantage of CrowdRise’s guaranteed pricing -- UNICEF, Feed the Children and Volunteers of America -- and they're getting an average of $98.33 of every $100 raised. That’s an effective rate of 1.67%. And just to reiterate, all of this includes the credit card fees.
Quick Notes – The Fiver and The Tre guarantees exclude donations over $1000 but your donors will still have the option to cover your fees. Also excluded are registration/ticketing transactions and donations that makeup fundraising minimums.
