"Great plugin for creating kickstarter type websites. Many options and very easy to set up."
Crowdfund your next project complete with funding goals and reward packages, or quickly build a single donation page with recurring payment options.
More Money for Your Project
Services like Kickstarter and Indiegogo take as much as 11% for admin and processing fees.
Lose the outrageous fees and put the funds directly into your nonprofit, indie record release, or crazy invention instead.
Power Features & Simple Setup
If you’re looking for a heavy duty fundraising system with thousands of settings – this isn’t it. Other plugins can do that.
Fundraising adds just the power-features for simple crowdfunding and quick setup.
Integrate With Your Theme
The easy ‘getting started’ guide will have you creating fundraisers immediately.
Five included style templates, the in-post shortcode generator and built-in widgets make integration with your existing theme simple.
Easy Payment Processing
Fundraising includes Paypal integration for convenience or lets you keep 100% of the donation with a manual processing option.
Watch your progress bar climb. Process gifts in real-time at your next event. Input cash gifts, credit cards and pledges.
Rewards & Milestones
Set a start and end date with a specific goal and wait to take payment until the project is funded, or take donations as they come in.
Create reward packages and limit availability to motivate potential supporters. Fundraising makes it easy!
Fundraising in all Shapes & Sizes
From simple donations to reward-based crowdfunding, Fundraising has you covered.
Take continuous donation with no end date. Great for non-profits and donor supported organizations.
Authorize pledges, then wait to process payments until after your goal is reached – like Kickstarter.
Choose one of the included styles (Basic, Dark, Fresh, Minimal, Note) or create a custom style.
Start & End Date
Schedule your start date and end date to create urgency with time sensitive projects.
Thank You & Follow-Up
Built-in automated response emails send thank you messages and confirmation emails.
Set support levels and reward donors with a sticker, t-shirt or early release of your coffee table book depending on how much you give.
User Access Control
Work with a team? Give each user level permission to access only the fundraising features they need. From managing users and fundraisers to pledges and settings.
Fundraising is built to work with WordPress, Multisite and BuddyPress.
Get creative and pair Fundraising with other well-coded plugins – like Pro Sites. Build and host your own awesome crowdfunding network. Charge a premium for the ability to run campaigns.
Got some fundraising planned, need an easy system for accepting donations? This is the plugin for you!
