Note: Online fundraising campaigns must be done via The Borgen Project platform by following the steps below. Third party platforms such as GoFundMe charge very high processing fees and the organization does not directly receive the funding. For this reason, fundraising done on outside platforms will not count toward your fundraising total. To receive credit for your great work please follow protocol!
Let’s get started!
Here’s an example of what your personal Online Fundraising Campaign will look like:
To Set up your Personal Fundraising Platform:
- Complete this form.
- To add your photo, find or take a nice, clear, horizontally orientated photograph of yourself formatted strictly as .jpg (.jpeg) or .png files.
- You can resize photos here (minimum of 300 kB and maximum of 700 kB will look best.) As far as dimensions, photos should be rectangular and ideally at least 600 pixels wide x 400 pixels high. Like this:
- Attach the photo to the form. You will need a Google account to do this. If you don’t have one, please create one just for this purpose, as the 5 minutes it takes for you to set one up will save us time when setting up your profile, allowing us to spend time fighting poverty instead of uploading photos.
That’s all! You’ve done your part, now let us handle the backend.
Please allow at least one week for us to create your fundraising page. Once your profile is live, we will send you an email with the URL letting you know you can spread the word. If you have any questions, concerns or would like to edit your page, please contact [email protected].
