My Story

Fundraising is hard. As a board member of Back on My Feet in San Francisco, I was often torn on the best way to ask my friends to contribute money. I didn't want to broadcast my fundraising on Facebook, or have it shared with the world on GoFundMe. I started a matching campaign and got a number of my friends to pitch in - all through word of mouth, photos and screenshots of their donation receipts. It was so hard to keep track of!

So, we built this tool in mind for you. Whether your fundraising for a specific event like a marathon or your wedding, or you just want to bring awareness to a cause that resonates with you.

It's simple and takes less than 5 minutes to start your own campaign. Ready to give it a try? Get started here.

Happy fundraising,

Michelle
Cofounder and Chief Product Officer
