Are you trying to raise money to build a children’s hospital, fund a missionary, save the whales, or start a social movement? Whatever your cause may be, we have something that can help you reduce the stress of trying to bring in funds. Say hello to our new Fundraising plugin, a powerful and adaptive open-source solution for organizing fundraisers and donations.
Fundraising is not your average donation plugin. It turns your WordPress site into a full-on fundraising system, allowing you to crowdsource funds for a project or cause. The huge advantage of using WordPress is that you own your own data and don’t have to rely on a third party service to store your information and manage your goals and donations.
100% Compatible with WordPress Multisite and BuddyPress Out of the Box
Are you building a community around your cause? You’ll be happy to know that the Fundraising plugin is compatible with BuddyPress. It also works perfectly with Multisite so that users can create fundraising initiatives across your WordPress network.
