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 (ie. Kickstarter / Indiegogo), please contact us.

I am part of a large high school, and our team has 70+ members. The number one problem Givebutter solves for me is providing an affordable platform to fundraise effectively. In the past, if I raised $15,000, I'd be lucky to receive $12,000 of that, since other platforms took 20–30% of the money raised. Being in a large, urban high school, EVERY DOLLAR counts. Givebutter is the BEST solution, period. Having used a number of online, crowdsourcing fundraising platforms, Givebutter has some unique advantages: team-based fundraising, fundraising through text, QR Codes, iFrame support on external web pages, different fundraising categories (i.e. tickets, crowdsourcing, or payment)... I could go on. It's the best, most equitable, easy-to-use fundraising platform I have found in 26 years of education.
