Getting off on the right track. A head start. Having an advantage. Whatever you want to call it, is committed to helping our fundraisers make the most out of their projects. That’s why we have the Good Start Fund.

What is the Good Start Fund?

It’s our belief that everyone deserves a fair chance at a successful fundraiser. The Good Start Fund was created to help all of our fundraisers start on equal ground. As long as we have funds in our Good Start account, we’re able to give each story a $50 donation as their first contribution.

Studies have shown that people are more likely to give after they’ve seen others donating to a cause. So, when a fundraiser already has a $50 donation on their page, it gives potential donors incentive to make a donation as well. So far, the Good Start Fund has raised $40,860 to help 800 campaigns get off to a good start!

How You Can Help

In order for us to continue this unique function, we need to receive donations in the Good Start Fund regularly. Consider making a donation to the Good Start Fund today to help future fundraisers get the most out of their campaigns. And remember, every donation to is tax-deductible, and we never charge a fee to our fundraisers or donors.
