You can now add a fundraiser to your cell to provide financial support for your organization or to fund a specific project. You have already recruited a bunch of people to join your cell - why not get them to help you out with a little money!
You can start a fundraiser for any cell that you are the admin of. Fundraisers can have a one-time goal or a monthly goal.
One-time goal: People can make one-time contributions any time before the end date. Your fundraiser can be between 2 days and 30 days long.
Monthly goal: People can make one-time contributions or they can subscribe to an automatic monthly contribution.
Before you start a fundraiser, you need to have a cell to associate it with. You can start a fundraiser with just a title, a goal amount, and and a description. You don’t need to hook up payment information before starting.
Fundraiser goals can be for any amount between $5 and $50000. If you are running a fundraiser with a monthly goal, these amounts apply to the monthly goal. Fundraisers with a one-time goal currently have a maximum length of 30 days.
You can use Visa, Mastercard, and American Express from any country worldwide. In the USA other major credit cards are also supported (Discover, JCB, Diner’s Club, etc.) You can also contribute with Apple Pay on iOS.
To start a fundraiser, you need to have a US bank account or debit card. To contribute to a fundraiser, you can be anywhere.
Celly's fee amount is 4% to help fund our service. This is lower than Kickstarter, Patreon, GoFundMe, and other similar services! Our payment processor charges 2.2% (3.5% for American Express, which has very low usage) plus $0.30 per successful contribution. This processing fee is also very low compared to other services, and is the same for contributors worldwide.
You will be charged immediately. If you are contributing monthly, you will be charged on the same date that you originally contributed every month.
We want to make fundraising as easy as possible while maintaining trust. We don’t manually validate the nature of each fundraiser, but we verify the tax information and legal name of the recipient to make sure that they match. If you are contributing to a fundraiser, it is your responsibility to make sure you are comfortable contributing, and that you don’t expect anything material in return for your contribution.
We don’t provide this yet but we are working on it! Please check with a licensed tax professional, but if you are giving less than $250 to a recognized nonprofit, you generally don’t need a receipt.
When you end a monthly fundraiser, all monthly contribution subscriptions are immediately ended, and nobody can start a new contribution. You will be paid on the normal schedule at the end of the month for any contributions you received during the month before you ended the fundraiser.
