The point of a fundraising campaign shouldn’t be to line the pockets of credit card processors and other business executives. When people donate to a charity, they want to know that the money they’re giving is going to the people in need. Believe.in is a social fundraising tool that guarantees that 100% of the funds collected through its platform will make their way to their intended recipients.
Create a profile on Believe.in and select a few “themes” based on the topics you care about most (like education, science, or healthcare). Believe.in will automatically pull up a list of charities that you might like, based on your interests, and you can click to follow certain organizations and stay updated on their latest fundraising efforts. Next, you’ll want to get started with your deed log. Keep track of all your good deeds, from the $200 donation you made to the Red Cross to the time you spent volunteering at a local animal shelter. Nothing is too big or too small to add to your deed log. Believe.in helps you share the entries in your deed log (if you wish) as a way to subtly encourage your friends on social networks to get into the giving spirit.
Those same friends will come in useful when you start using Believe.in for your own fundraising efforts. Open up a new fundraising project and select the charity where you’d like the proceeds to go, then invite supporters (i.e., friends on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn) to donate to your campaign through PayPal. Believe.in guarantees that 100% of the donations you collect will go to charity, which is the biggest difference between Believe.in and other fundraising platforms.
