The Ultimate Nonprofit Guide to Fundraising Minimums
One of the most powerful tools in a nonprofit’s toolkit
At CrowdRise by GoFundMe, we believe that fundraising minimums can be one of the most powerful tools in a nonprofit’s toolkit. However, only a fraction of nonprofits doing event fundraising use ‘em or have even heard of ‘em. In this guide, we’re going to walk you through everything you’ve ever wanted to know about fundraising minimums, why you might want to use them, and why we think we’ve built the most useful and rich fundraising minimum feature set in the biz. It’ll be so fun.
A fundraising minimum is a fundraising commitment set by a nonprofit and agreed to by a participant, to be raised by a predetermined date. When your supporter registers for your event or joins your campaign, they will be notified along the way that, by completing their registration, they are agreeing to reach your fundraising minimum. If your supporter doesn’t end up raising the fundraising minimum, they’ve already approved their credit card to be charged for the remaining amount not met via donations, as part of the agreement.
