As discussed in Givebutter's ultimate fundraising success guide, setting a realistic goal and showing progress early on can be critical to your fundraising success. On Givebutter, you have the option as to whether you'd like to set a fundraising goal at all, and you'll keep all the funds you raise regardless of whether or not you hit that target. You can also increase or decrease your fundraising goal, and withdraw funds raised, at any point during your campaign.
If you'd like to enable pledge donations or make your campaign an all-or-nothing format (i.e. Kickstarter / Indiegogo), please contact us.
We quite literally raised over 10 times as much money on Givebutter compared to last year’s event using GoFundMe. I can’t say enough how awesome this platform is for fundraising, and also how much fun we had using it.
