Create a fundraising account
The organization you want to fundraise for will have a webpage to sign up as a fundraiser. Access the page and complete the following:
On the webpage, select the button to sign up
Choose how you want to fundraise (individually versus as a team)
Note: How you choose to fundraise may be controlled by the organization. For instance, some organizations only allow individual fundraisers while others only allow teams.
Create an account with the sign-up form
Note: If you have donated to or fundraised for an organization that uses Classy in the past, you can log in to your supporter account instead. Classy makes the fundraising software many nonprofits use to manage fundraisers and donations.
Enter the details for your fundraising page
Once you create an account or log in, you'll set up the details of your page.
Follow the prompts to enter your fundraising details including:
Your fundraising goal
The end date/date you want to stop fundraising
Your fundraising page headline
Last, upload a profile picture for your fundraising page
We encourage adding one to personalize your page
You can always change it later
Edit your fundraising page
Once you create your page, you can customize it. To do so, select Manage in the top-right of the page to open your editor. From there you can change the Story content, post updates, and change your page details such as your profile picture.
You can learn more about customizing with our guide on editing fundraising pages.
