Create a fundraiser page

Step 1: Fill out a short form

When you click on the “Get Started” button below, you’ll see a pop-up window prompting you to name your fundraiser, select a display photo, set a fundraising goal, write a brief message, and choose an end date. You can edit these later!

Step 2: Verify your email

Once you submit the basic information for your fundraiser, you’ll see another pop-up window asking for your email. After you enter it, you should receive an email with a code that you can enter in a new pop-up window.

Step 3: Launch your fundraiser

After your email is verified, you’ll receive another email with a link to your fundraiser that you can share via email or social media, and another link to track donations.
