Raise More Money with our New Crowdfunding Platform

 Release Announcement: DonorPerfect’s new crowdfunding platform helps you raise more money, engage donors and grow your network.

Your donors love your nonprofit and care deeply about your mission. How can you engage them in a meaningful way? With today’s release of DonorPerfect Online forms, you can leverage the power of crowdfunding to build a community around your nonprofit and generate more revenue. DonorPerfect’s crowdfunding platform offers donors an easy way to support your organization with individual fundraising pages they can create, personalize and share with family and friends.

How Does a Crowdfunding Platform Work for My Nonprofit?

It’s quick and easy to get started. Set up your main organizational form with any customized codes (e.g., Thank You Letter, campaign, solicitation, etc.) needed for filtering and reporting in DonorPerfect. When constituents visit your form, they’ll click a link to create and edit their own individual pages, inheriting any default values you’ve set in your form. Gift and donor data collected by all DonorPerfect Crowdfunding pages flows right into DonorPerfect, saving you time on data entry.
