Charity membership

Since day one, it's been important to us to make sure that charities of all sizes can benefit from visual fundraising. We've spoken to fundraisers across the country to make sure we've conquered all the points that really matter to you and your team.

Here are just some of the reasons why your charity will benefit from joining us. Click through each of the points to find out more.

Why should your charity join Visufund?

✔ Join for free with no subscriptions

You've got better things to spend your money on than paying a monthly subscription to a fundraising platform. We know that this can make online fundraising completely unaffordable to many smaller charities, and the last thing you want to do is to end up paying more than you're making back in donations! That's why it won't cost you a penny to join us and become a charity member of Visufund. We simply deduct a platform fee of 3.9% from donations to cover our costs. Read more about why we charge a small fee on donations.

✔ Start accepting donations in minutes

It's really quick and easy to get started. You can be up and running within 5 minutes. All you need to do is:

  • Supply some basic information about your charity, such as uploading your logo, providing your contact details, and writing a short description about what you do.
  • Connect a Stripe account. Stripe is our payment processor for your donations. By connecting your own Stripe account to our platform, you receive your donations directly. If you don't already have a Stripe account, don't worry! This only takes a minute to set up and doesn't cost anything. Read more about connecting a Stripe account to Visufund.

As soon as you've completed these two simple steps, you'll be able to accept donations immediately.

✔ Create your own pages for your charity campaigns

Bring your existing campaigns to life by creating an interactive page for your online supporters. This is the perfect way for your supporters to see how their donations make a difference. There is no limit on what you can do with a visual fundraising page, but here are just a few ideas to get you started:

  • Christmas - Are you running a Light Up A Life campaign, or asking for donations to sponsor lights on a tree? Invite your supporters to decorate a virtual Christmas tree and leave a message with their donation.
  • Mother's Day - If you're asking your supporters to share photos of their Mum this Mother's Day, either in memory or in celebration, you can create a virtual bouquet of flowers to display their messages and photos in a more symbolic way.
  • Easter - Perhaps your charity is always inundated with chocolate eggs every year? In that case, you could ask for donations of virtual Easter eggs instead. That way, you receive unrestricted income that you can spend on your charitable goals, and still let your supporters feel like they're giving an Easter gift.
  • In Memory appeals - If you're looking for a way to refresh your in memory fundraising appeals, you can ask for donations to dedicate stars in the sky, light virtual candles, or release balloons in memory of a loved one.
  • Your events - Recreate your events online and reach a brand new audience. We have templates suitable for all sorts of community events, such as dog walks and even rubber duck races!

✔ Invite your supporters to fundraise for you

By signing up today, your supporters will also be able to create their own fundraising pages for you. Visual fundraising is the perfect way for your supporters to raise sponsorship money for their own events, using a design that represents their activity, such as marathons or bake sales. It's also a more personal way for families to collect donations in memory of a loved one, perhaps as part of a funeral collection, as donors can leave messages and photos with their gift.

✔ Access our premium products & design service

We recognise that sometimes you'll want to incorporate your brand colours into a design or use specific imagery to suit the theme of your campaign. To help you maximise the success of your fundraising campaigns, we offer a range of different products and services, from accessing premium features on your pages right through to our fully bespoke design service. If you're not sure which service to go for, feel free to contact us and we'll be happy to discuss your requirements.

✔ Manage your account, pages & donor data through the charity portal

Our comprehensive charity portal gives you complete control of your account and pages. Once you've created your account, you'll be able to:

The easiest way to see what's possible is to sign up for a no-obligation charity account and try it for yourself!
