    Create peer to peer campaigns with custom pages and donation goals to activate and expand your fundraising network

Metrics & Engagement

  • Matching & Leaderboards
    Use leaderboards and matching to incentivize friendly competition and increase giving. Track giving by groups or donor affiliation on leaderboards. Match gifts to your campaign or volunteer hours served
  • Reporting Made Easy
    Create unique reports based on your campaign. Filter donors by donation amounts, time periods, or answers to custom checkout questions to accurately and thoroughly understand your donors and their connection to your cause
  • One Database for All Impacts
    Track donations and volunteer hours in one database to bridge the gap between your donors and volunteers. Use metrics from the different types of engagements to better understand your donors

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

  • 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
