Give Forward – Fundraising Made Simple

Tips and Resources

I found another amazing resource that I had to share. It’s called GiveForward and provides free, personalized fundraising pages to raise money quickly and easily online. Imagine needing to raise money for a friend or family member who is experiencing a medical emergency. Others want to help but aren’t sure how to do so. This online service allows you to create a web page easily and efficiently and share it with others via social media letting others know how they can help.

The company does charge a 7% fee to provide this service but according to their FAQ page most fundraising tools take between 8%-12% when they are running similar fundraisers, so Give Forward is actually working to keep those costs even lower.

To learn more about this online service or to create your own fundraising campaign, check out GiveFoward.
