FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHY SHOULD I FUNDRAISE WITH PLAYRAISE?
PlayRaise is the only fundraising platform to give more while taking less. We do NOT charge administration fees or take any of the proceeds from your campaign in the form of commissions.
Your cause receives up to 20% of the proceeds from countless products that everyone recognize, love, and will use daily. And, we're proud to offer FREE, direct shipping on every order in Canada and the USA, which means there's thousands of reasons to begin fundraising with PlayRaise today!
WHAT MAKES PLAYRAISE DIFFERENT TO FUNDRAISE WITH?
We've lived the nightmare that's traditional product based fundraising, or cause base shopping - and we set out in 2017 to change the industry. Now an international, family run company, we've collectively been putting the FUN back into fundraising (a happy accident!), and very much look forward to working with you!
HOW MUCH CAN I RAISE WITH PLAYRAISE?
The best part about working with PlayRaise is that your dedicated Fundraising Champion will be by your side every step of the way to celebrate the wins with you along the way and at the finish line!!
We provide the platform, tools and system to ensure successful campaigns, and our dedicated team provides hero support, backed with statistical info from previous campaigns to ensure your campaign hits metrics necesssary to ensure you reach your fundraising goals.
There are many factors that go into a successful fundraiser, and we've seen campaigns which have raised well over $20,000.0USD in as little as a few weeks, we've also seen others that haven't raised much at all. We've determined that cause based giving really comes down to advocacy marketing - you and your supporters will need to promote your campaign page within your own networks (via text, email and social media) asking people to SHOP and SHARE. This has been the single most determining factor we've noticed and is what separates campaigns that struggle to reach their target from the ones that greatly surpass them.
The more awareness created during your campaign by adding your own engaging comments before re-sharing social posts, the better the results will be. But fear not, we've created a library of done-for-you visuals, comments and text/email templates. Your cause will earn up to 20% from each product sold.

THIS SEEMS PRETTY EASY, WHAT'S THE CATCH?
No catch! We are parents in sports and have endured all the pain of traditional fundraising for years, including:
** Tired product selection
** Archaic payment and delivery methods
** Donor reach limited by person-to-person outreach
** Low % return to the team
** Lack of emotional connection
We remain committed to overcoming these and other obstacles, and it truly is as simple as 1 - 2 - 3!
1.) Get in touch with us about starting a new campaign!
2.) Have your initial on boarding Zoom call with one of our Fundraising Champions.
3.) Start sharing your custom campaign page across your personal and organization social media pages and encourage others to do so as well! Remember, the larger your donor reach is, the better your campaign will do.
We handle all the logistics - from setting up your campaign page where you can tell your story and explain what you're fundraising for, to payments and distribution. At the end of your campaign, the funds will be auto-matically deposited into your account. Simple as that!
PlayRaise makes fundraising as simple and hassle free as possible, which means you can focus on the things that matter most...getting back to the game!
