Is Fundup a crowdfunding site?
Fundup is not a crowdfunding site, it is a platform that supports ongoing charitable giving to nonprofits and allows donors to increase the impact of their giving by inviting others to join them.
*How much of my donation goes to the nonprofit?
The nonprofit receives 95% minus credit card processing fees, which donors can choose to cover (2.9% + $0.30 per donation). 5% goes to Fundup to keep our lights on.
Can I choose which nonprofit I give to?
Yes! You can give to any nonprofit that has a Fundup account. If the nonprofit you would like to give to doesn’t have one yet, you can invite them by sending them your link through the app. The amount they raise for their organization will show up in your total impact.
How do I raise the most money for the nonprofit I love?
For best results, we first recommend you complete your profile by filling out the description of your Fundup and adding a link to your personal fundraising video. This video should include why you are raising funds, why you chose the nonprofit you did, and a brief explanation of how Fundup works. Then use the app to send texts and emails to your friends and family encouraging them to sign up, give to your Fundup, and invite their friends to do the same.
Is Fundup easy to use?
Yes, once you create an account and start giving to to a nonprofit, just tap the “Invite a friend” button in the app to send your sign up link to friends and family. It’s that easy!
Can I create a custom video for my Fundup?
Yes, just record and upload your video to YouTube, then head to the profile tab and hit “Edit”, scroll to your “Invite Videos” section and copy and paste a link to the video. Be sure to include why this cause matters to you, why you chose the nonprofit you are supporting, and how the Fundup giving platform works.
Is Fundup giving secure?
Yes, Fundup follows up-to-date security practices and partners with Stripe for secure payment processing. All connections are fully encrypted and your payment information is never stored on our servers.
Can I refer people without giving?
This feature may be available in the future, but for now we require that Fundup users donate to a nonprofit for at least one month to create their account. If the nonprofit you want to support isn’t on the app yet, we suggest you give this donation to another nonprofit to create your account, then refer the nonprofit you want to give to and start donating to it when it signs up.
We already have a monthly giving program, can we still use Fundup?
While Fundup can serve as a primary monthly giving platform, it doesn’t need to replace your existing one. Fundup gives you access to new donors you didn’t have before, specifically small monthly donors. Many people who can only give $5/month don’t, because they don’t believe it will make a difference. Fundup shows them how their $5/month can turn into $50/month or even $100/month or more, which encourages them to give.
How long does it take to set up my nonprofit account??
Creating your account only takes a few minutes. Once you’ve done that, we will reach out within 24-48 hours to verify your information.
Can I customize my nonprofit profile?
Yes, you can customize your information in your profile settings. You can also add a video donors can watch to learn more about your organization. We highly recommend doing both of these things.
How does my nonprofit receive donations?
Donations are sent monthly via ACH transfer to your bank account via Stripe, the industry standard.
Do I have to send out tax receipts to donors?
No, Fundup issues tax receipts to donors for you at the end of each year.
Can I use Fundup in my state?
Fundup is currently available in MD, VA, PA, NY, DE, IA, ID, IN, MO, NE, TX, SD, VT, WY, and CA. Fundup will soon be available in Washington DC. If you would like to use Fundup and your state is not listed, please email us.
All donations are processed by Fundup Foundation, a Maryland based 501(c)(3) nonprofit (EIN 86-3155853)
