Raise The Money is an online payment processor that processes contributions for political campaigns, PACs, and committees in the US, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada. We also process contributions for nonprofits and social causes in the US.
Creating an account with us is free, and it takes less than five minutes. There are no setup fees, monthly fees, or hidden costs. A small percentage of each donation is taken to process the payment. With this account, you get access to our software suite and campaign fundraising features that will increase the volume of donations, ultimately helping you win your election.
These features consist of a free contribution form for your campaign that you can link to in emails, Facebook statuses, or blog posts. Speaking of Facebook, you also get the ability to add a “Donate” button to your campaign’s Facebook page. Each donation form is pre-populated with each state or country’s specific donation restrictions, so you don’t have to worry about refunding donors that give more than is allowed.
One of the most tedious tasks of running for office is filing monthly and quarterly reports to the FEC. Your account takes the headache out of preparing these reports. Every time a donor makes a contribution, their data is uploaded to an Excel spreadsheet that can be downloaded at any time in either monthly or quarterly reports. Additionally, our customizable fields on your contribution form allow you to ask for everything from occupation to spousal information. When reporting time comes around, simply download your reports and you’re good to go.
MoneyMail, our newest feature, is our in-house email service that is accessible directly through your own account. Fundraising emails are one of the easiest and most efficient ways to raise money for your campaign. With MoneyMail, every email you send is completely customizable. You have the ability to customize the ‘to’ and ‘from’ fields, the subject line, as well as customizing your own distribution lists.
Your account with Raise The Money is also mobile-friendly, because we know politics doesn’t stop when you clock out for the day. Our app allows you to check contribution details, view donor contact information, and even crowdfund on the go.
Lastly, our customer service team is the best in the business. If you have an issue with your account, contact us any day of the week and urgent matters will be handled quickly. Gone are the days of waiting on hold for hours to simply speak to a customer service representative. We value you as a client, and exceeding your expectations is our ultimate goal. And to help you win your election, of course.
