Set a nonprofit you support on the path to success with a GreatNonprofits Fundraiser. Did you know that one-third of all online donations come from peer-to-peer fundraisers? GreatNonprofits Fundraisers let you amplify the impact of your story into a fundraising campaign that makes a meaningful impact for your favorite nonprofit.

Start by sharing a story of your experience with the organization that you want to raise money for. If you have an existing review for them and have access to your GNP account, you can skip this step by: logging into your account, going to “My Reviews,” finding the story, and clicking on “Create Fundraiser.”

Fundraising doesn’t stop once you’ve shared. You can easily access your Fundraiser Dashboard by hovering over the “Hello, Username” on the top right corner and clicking on “My Page.” Navigate to “My Personal Fundraisers” and voila!

Your dashboard allows you to track progress toward your donation goal and send Thank You emails to your donors. You can also edit the information on your live fundraiser page, and have easy access to buttons for more sharing.

And now you’re all done. Happy Fundraising!
