If you’re looking to fundraise for an organization but you’re unsure of how to make sure the proceeds are distributed properly, you can simply connect your Campaign directly to the organization through Bonfire’s Design Tool.
This can be done during step 3 of the setup process:
- Choose Fundraising as your Campaign type
- Select that you want your payout to be sent directly to the organization
- Search for the organization by name or EIN in the search bar that appears
- Once you’ve located the organization, you simply select them and you’re connected
Why do I need to select Fundraising as my Campaign type?
Selecting a Fundraising Campaign allows the option to have the payout sent directly to an organization. Choosing this option will also open up other features normally exclusive to verified nonprofits.
Note that you can still select Fundraising as your Campaign type even if you’re not connecting the Campaign to an Organization.
What if I can’t find the organization I want to fundraise for?
The search engine we use is called Charity Navigator. If an organization is not registered with Charity Navigator, it won’t show up on our site.
What types of organizations can I fundraise for?
The option to have the payout sent directly to an organization is only available for registered 501(c)3 nonprofits at this time. However, you can fundraise for any type of organization through Bonfire.
