How does it work?
Funsidy helps you to raise money online for almost anything. You can create a fundraising campaign with ease, for yourself or on behalf of someone else and share it with the people in your life. We also allow you earn money from sharing other fundraising campaigns based on what percentage the campaign owners set.
We have also created a community fund from a small percentage of all campaign donations, this fund will help our fundraisers who need the extra help to reach their goals. We distribute this community fund every 90 days to the campaigns with with best campaign scores based on what they need to reach their goals.
We are the only platform to offer this system of community funding period. Join our community of fundraisers today.Watch How it Works >>
