The internet won’t suddenly disappear, which is good. Because it eases your work as fundraiser. We from betterplace.org are happy to help you with online fundraising.

Reach your supporters where they are spending
more and more time: on the internet

Your project page on betterplace.org
Your project page on betterplace.org is the starting point for online fundraising. Donations can be made via credit card, PayPal, direct debit or wire transfer.
betterplace.org offers you an integrated donation form for your own website.
You prefer to collect donations on your own website or on facebook? No problem! No matter where, when, and how – our tools are waiting to be used for the good cause. Are you ready?

Win back your givers by keeping them up-to-date

If you want to gain the long-term loyalty of your donors you need a convincing strategy – and authentic and personal communication. On betterplace.org supporters can experience your project: By posting news and adding pictures or videos, you can instantly provide your supporters with updates on the progress of your project. You reactivate you donors with our newsletter system. You will profit from the efficiency of our communication system. And your givers might want to donate again, again, and again...

Inform your supporters in real time on project updates by using the project blog and by sending newsletters.

Supporters of your project can create a fundraising event on betterplace.org and help you collecting donations for your project. Virginie from Belgium for example ran a marathon in Gobi Desert and collected donations for an orphans aid project in China.

Turn your donors into fundraisers

Being a fundraiser can keep you busy. So why not getting fundraising support from your givers? On betterplace.org, they can create a fundraising event for your project. For example, your supporters might wish donations to your project instead of receiving birthday gifts, or they run a marathon and collect donations. Your donors can also help you finding new supporters by sharing your message via facebook, Google+, or twitter. This might save you a lot of time.

Our mission: Helping you to help

Karolin, Katja, Francesca, Christina, Mirjam, Leonie, Dino, Christoph, Katja und Björn from betterplace.org are happy to help you!

betterplace.org is not profit-oriented. We do not want to sell you anything. Our only wish: create as much transparency as possible for the giver – by describing exactly what you need, for which purpose you will use the donations, and by telling your donors which impact their donation has had.
So how do we finance ourselves? ➞

We are also happy to support you with trainings, tips on collecting donations online and trends about online fundraising. We want you to be successful with your fundraising! And if you successfully collect donations we will introduce you to our corporate and media partners – and thus to many potential new supporters of your project!
