Is this a paid position?
Yes! Ambassadors have the opportunity to receive up to $2,000 for their participation in the program, in addition to some sweeeeet Givebutter swag. A full list of rewards can be seen by downloading the ambassador pamphlet here.
Is there a required time commitment to participate in the program?
Givebutter Ambassadors are required to check-in with us online once per week for the first 12 weeks of being an ambassador. These check-ins should never take more than an hour. There is no other "required" time commitment, but spending additional time throughout the week to promote Givebutter is necessary to being a successful ambassador.
How do check-ins work?
Every ambassador is given access to an ambassador portal on the Givebutter.com website. Each week you'll be sent an email reminder to check-in through the portal, where you'll find a new video for you to watch and an occasional simple task to help educate you on the best ways to promote Givebutter and set you up for success. Past tasks have been things such as: post on social, send 10 emails, nominate a Changemaker, refer other ambassadors, and tell us about your experience!
How long does the ambassador program last?
Once accepted into the ambassador program, you are considered an ambassador for life. You will always be able to claim campaigns, network with other ambassadors, and get rewarded through your ambassador portal - even after you graduate. We accept ambassadors on a rolling basis, and when you start is entirely up to you.
What is Givebutter and how does it work?
Givebutter is a social crowdfunding platform for student organizations, nonprofits, sports teams, startups, and individuals to fundraise for any cause at the lowest fee possible. Every fundraiser on Givebutter has instant access to powerful fundraising features such as trackable team fundraising, an Instagram-esque social donation feed, donor management tools, actionable analytics, event ticketing and registration, and more. Consider Givebutter your completely free, one-stop-shop for fundraising. You can set up a fundraiser for any cause in minutes by heading here.
How is Givebutter different from other crowdfunding websites like GoFundMe and Kickstarter?
GoFundMe and Kickstarter made crowdfunding famous when they launched 10 years ago, but now they are among the most outdated, expensive, and limited options available. Givebutter offers the best experience, lowest fees, and most effective fundraising features available in crowdfunding. You can see a side-by-side comparison here.
Can I work at another job and the ambassador program at the same time?
Yes! In fact, we encourage it! Many ambassadors also intern or work part-time jobs elsewhere in addition to working with us. As long as you’re checking-in via our online ambassador portal once per week, we’re cool.
We get lots of questions about our name, and the answer is simple: Givebutter is a butter way to give. We believe that you deserve butter, much butter, than the other crowdfunding sites out there. There’s no margarine for error. We’re already on a roll, but with you on our side, this company will be legen-dairy.
