For campaigns affiliated with UCSF, the platform emails UDAR and requests approval. The platform supports traditional crowdfunding campaigns as well as team-based challenges and event fundraisers. Gifts are dispersed regardless of whether the campaign goal is achieved, and the campaign timeline can be adjusted.
Crowdrise requires a $10 gift minimum, accepts only major credit cards, and – for those using its starter package – charges 5 percent plus credit card fees of 2.9 percent and 30 cents per transaction. Crowdrise’s charitable affiliate, Network for Good, sends payments on the 15th of each month of all donations made in the previous month.
Donors do not receive a receipt from UCSF; they also are not wealth screened or included in donor stewardship programs. Should we choose, UDAR can download donor name, email, physical address, amount of donation, and the date/time the donation occurred.
