Fundraising & Crowdfunding

  • Giving Features
    Use GivePulse’s fundraising features for your next crowdfunding campaign or set up an ongoing fundraiser to accept donations year-round. Our giving features allow you to collect custom information at checkout, automate thank you messages, and give visitors to your GivePulse profile the option to make a donation any time
  • Peer to Peer
    Use peer to peer (P2P) fundraising to raise more for your crowdfunding campaign or allow others to start a fundraiser on your behalf. GivePulse’s peer to peer fundraising features are catered to individuals and groups that want to raise funds for your organization, tell the story of their connection to your cause and track their impact
  • Fundraising + Engagement
    GivePulse is the only platform that is a comprehensive solution to manage philanthropic giving and volunteer engagement in one place. That means you’ll be able to see who your best supporters are based on donations given, funds raised, volunteer hours served and events attended

Donation Pricing

Let your community engage with you through donations, crowdfunding and fundraising campaigns

  • Lowest Rates in the Industry
    We proudly offer platform fees of 1% + the standard credit/debit transaction fee of 2.9% + 30 cents per transaction. While other fundraising sites have platform fees of 4-8% + credit/debit processing fees, we want to ensure that more of what you raise goes toward its intended cause
  • Let Donor Cover Fees
    Your donors will always have the option to cover the fees, which over 85% of donors normally do! Because of this, nonprofits keep an average of $99.00 of every $100 they raise
  • Platform Fees with a Purpose
    GivePulse uses the 1% platform fees collected to invest back into community initiatives like Director of Volunteers in Associations, Scholarships, Pro Bono projects and many others. In addition to helping others lift up their communities, we want our actions to reflect our organization’s mission

Donor Management

  • Database
    Configure what fields you want to capture every single time a donor donates to you. Our one-stop database approach allows you to review custom field data and communicate with donors all in one place
  • Donation + Engagement Reports
    Create unique reports based on the campaign you created or discover prospective donors in your volunteer database. GivePulse allows you to fully understand the giving potential of your donors and volunteers
  • Integrations
    Should you decide that you want to use GivePulse to augment an existing CRM or ERP system, we can help with out-of-the-box integrations with Salesforce, SugarCRM, Blackbaud and other products

Communities have rallied to provide care for those who are vulnerable or whose livelihoods are precarious in the face of changing suggestions and legislation. We know that we are sick together and well together. Our actions shape our communities’ health, in the most literal sense of the word.
