Fundraising platform for nonprofit organizations, RallyUp, announced on Wednesday the launch of a crowdfunding option for nonprofits. While sharing details about the update, Founder and CEO of RallyUp, Steve Bernat, stated:
“We released a free crowdfunding option for a couple of reasons. The crowdfunding market has become very saturated at this point. RallyUp offers nine other great ways to raise money in addition to crowdfunding. By giving away standard crowdfunding, we hope to bring attention to the other creative tools that organizations are using to successfully raise money on our platform.”
Bernat also revealed:
“Many of the ‘free’ sites out there aren’t really free. Sure, they don’t charge a fee to the nonprofit, but they solicit each donor to add a ‘tip’ of 15% or more to pay the site. That seems ridiculous – why should someone have to pay a ‘tip’ for giving money to charity?”
The RallyUp team added the new free crowdfunding platform was released in time for Giving Tuesday fundraising, which takes place on November 28th, and can be used immediately.
