Personal Fundraising: Frequently Asked Questions

Who can create a personal fundraiser on Razoo?

Personal fundraising on Razoo means you can fundraise for a person or cause — even ones that aren’t nonprofits. Going on a mission trip this summer? Need help with your medical expenses? Helping a family recover from a natural disaster? You can start a fundraiser for yourself, or raise funds for a family or friend in need. Organizations that are awaiting their 501(c)3 Letter of Determination from the IRS, international nonprofits not yet registered in the U.S., and businesses can also set up personal fundraisers on Razoo.

How do I publish my personal fundraiser?

Make sure to fill out all the sections with a “!” on it. Once you complete all the required sections (Title, Categories, Image/Video, Goal, Duration, Organizer Info, Description and Bank Setup), you’ll see a blue Publish button appear at the bottom of the screen. You’ll be prompted to either Publish or Continue Editing. Once you click Publish, your page will be live so you can start sharing your page and raising the funds you need for your cause!

How do I receive funds from my fundraiser?

Once a donation is successfully processed by Razoo, it is passed along to Stripe to manage disbursement of funds to your bank account. Funds will be available for transfer 14 days after the donation is made and posted to your Stripe account. Then, you’ll see donations deposited in your bank account on an 2-day rolling basis. For any questions about your disbursement of funds, please contact Stripe support directly.
