Why use GiveNow over other peer to peer fundraising platforms?
We’re the cheapest. Other platforms charge between 6-10% transaction fees as well as ongoing subscription costs. We’ve done everything we can to keep the transaction fees as low as possible (see here) and don’t charge organisations a setup or ongoing subscription fees.
Fundraise for multiple causes at once. We have more than 4,000 verified Australian organisations for you to support and we are always happy to add more on your recommendation. Unlike on other platforms, you can select up to three causes to conduct a CrowdRaiser™ for at one time.
We’re super-easy to use. We’ve heard the complaints about how difficult it can be just to make a donation on other platforms. That’s why we’ve custom built GiveNow to allow donors to get in, process their donation, and get out. It’s intuitive and quick. As a Crowdraiser, you’ll see set up and management is also incredibly easy.
It’s secure. We don’t allow any personal fundraising campaigns and have a strict vetting process for organisations, not to mention the highest security standards to ensure everything, from payment processing through to the organisation who receives your funds, is legitimate, safe and secure.
Our model is flexible. There is no risk of your chosen organisation not receiving your funds. This is different to some other platforms that only release the funds when a certain amount is reached.
We make life easier for you. Manage everything, from inviting friends to join your team to viewing your donations, through MyGiving.
We’ll issue your donors receipts. We’ll send your donors a receipt with each transaction and at tax time.
We just get it. We’ve been around longer than any other Australian donations platform and we are an enterprise of Our Community, Australia’s centre of excellence for the nation’s 600,000 not-for-profits. We understand your needs, we’re mission driven and we’ve built GiveNow on the back of this experience.
