GiveSendGo Would NEVER

By: Alex Shipley on | Comments: 15
So you clicked the button. We get it! Just like fundraising on GiveSendGo and those days of sending rickrolls to your friends – resisting that button was simply irresistible.

Now that you’re here, GiveSendGo wants to assure you, just like Rick, we'd NEVER give you up, let you down, or run around and desert you. Our commitment to your fundraising journey is as unshakable as the rickroll trend itself.

Never gonna give you up
We believe at our core in sharing hope and we want you to do the same when you use GiveSendGo! That’s why we’re here to guide you as you embark on your giving or fundraising journey. Making a difference is possible wherever you are. Just say yes and put in the work; we're here to help with the rest!

Never gonna let you down
Just like Rick Astley’s anthem, GiveSendGo won’t disappoint. With features like our top-notch 24/7 customer service, global presence in 80 countries, reduced processing fees, and a wide range of fundraising categories, we guarantee a simple, safe, and accessible fundraising experience, making it possible for anyone to raise money for the people and causes that matter most to them. 

Plus, we offer prayer features like a prayer button on every campaign page and a prayer wall where you can share your prayer requests and praises.

Never gonna run around and desert you
Unfortunately, other crowdfunding sites may ditch you faster than someone falling for a rickroll! We've seen them shut down campaigns due to their political and ideological bents, neglecting to defend people’s freedom to fundraise. It’s like the worst kind of breakup. But worry not – GiveSendGo is dedicated to safeguarding your freedoms, so you can rely on us in your time of need. You deserve a platform that’s here for the right reasons!

Never gonna make you cry
Unless, of course, they're happy tears because your campaign just hit its fundraising goal! Rest assured, we'd NEVER make you cry for any other reason—unless you're watching adorable baby animal videos or soldiers reuniting with family after a long deployment (wipes tear - that one gets us every time), in which case, that's beyond our control.

Never gonna say goodbye
We're not in the business of goodbyes. Once you give, pray, or start your campaign with GiveSendGo, you’re part of the family. Our commitment to you doesn't end when your campaign does. We're here for the long haul, like a love story that transcends time and space.

Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you
Like Astley, honesty is our policy, just like in any good relationship. We're transparent about our processes and our mission: to share the hope of Jesus through crowdfunding. No lies, no deception—just a genuine desire to help you make a difference in the world one campaign, donation, and prayer at a time.

Rallying the Faithful: Crowdfunding on GiveSendGo for Faith-Based Causes

By: Alex Shipley on | Comments: 1
Crowdfunding has become a popular way to raise funds for various causes, including faith-based initiatives. One of the leading crowdfunding platforms for faith-based causes is GiveSendGo. The platform has helped raise millions of dollars for religious causes such as church building projects, mission trips, and charitable works. In this blog, we will explore the benefits of crowdfunding on GiveSendGo for these faith-based causes.

Access to a Large Network of Supporters
GiveSendGo is a popular crowdfunding platform among Christians worldwide, and it has a large network of supporters who are ready to give to faith-based causes. By using the platform, campaign owners can reach out with their campaign links on their social media platforms as well as by email and text to potential supporters who care about them and share their values and beliefs, making it easier to connect with people who are more likely to donate.

Safe and Secure Platform
One of the primary concerns for both givers and campaign owners across the board is the safety and security of their funds. GiveSendGo has taken several measures to ensure that donations are safe and secure. The platform uses industry-standard encryption and SSL certificates to protect all sensitive information, such as credit card details. In addition, the platform has a fraud prevention system that monitors transactions and flags any suspicious activity.

Easy-to-Use Platform
GiveSendGo is designed to be user-friendly, with a simple interface that allows people to create and launch a campaign quickly. The platform provides step-by-step instructions, making it easy for people to set up their campaigns and start accepting donations. The platform also offers a range of customization options, including the ability to add images and videos to the campaign page.

Emphasis on Prayer 
The platform has several features that promote prayer and allow supporters to participate in praying for the people and causes they care about. GiveSendGo's Prayer Partners are a dedicated team of people who have committed to praying for the needs of campaign owners and their causes. The platform also has a "Pray Now" button on every campaign page that allows supporters to submit their prayers and messages of support directly to the fundraiser. (Everyone can use prayer!) Additionally, GiveSendGo has a Prayer Wall, where people can view and pray for the needs of others. This page is open to anyone looking for some spiritual support for their prayer requests or even a community of people who are ready to celebrate their praises! These features not only encourage a sense of community among givers, campaign owners, and anyone who uses GiveSendGo but they also emphasize the importance of prayer in the success of faith-based initiatives. 

Cheaper Than Competitors
GiveSendGo is the cheapest crowdfunding platform out there. It has a 0% platform fee and operates off of a generosity model, meaning people only give to GiveSendGo when they choose to support us! GiveSendGo also recently lowered their third-party payment processing fee to 2.7% + $0.30, far cheaper than our competitors! This means our campaign owners can keep more and do more with the money they raise! 

Support for Religious Causes
Unlike other crowdfunding platforms, GiveSendGo has a heart for faith-based causes, making it an ideal choice for faith-filled fundraisers. In fact, GiveSendGo’s founders and many of its employees are believers who understand the struggle of finding support for their ministries and faith-based initiatives in a world that’s hostile to Christianity and religion in general. That’s why GiveSendGo offers a platform for people to raise funds for a wide range of religious causes, from Christian mission trips to Jewish charitable works. This makes it easier for campaign owners to connect with like-minded supporters who share their faith and values.

In conclusion, GiveSendGo is an excellent platform for faith-based fundraising initiatives. With its large network of supporters, user-friendly interface, emphasis on prayer, cheaper platform, and support for religious causes, it offers a range of benefits to campaign owners. By leveraging these benefits, faith-based fundraisers can rally their faithful supporters to achieve their fundraising goals and bring their initiatives to life for the glory of God!
