How it works


Our guide to charity crowdfunding

Fundraise is a new way for you to raise money online for your not-for-profit, charity, social enterprise, community project or person in need.

We recommend the following process:


Before you start
Before starting, find out what fundraise is, if you're eligible, how much you can raise and what our fees are.

Register an account
If you intent to fundraise for a registered charity or NPO , you qualify. When you register an account with us , you also need to register and account with payfast which will recieve your funds directly.

Create your page
Create your fundraise page. You can customize content, images, video (soon), set your target and timeframe and more. 

Promote your campaign
Create a campaign team, send out your campaign via email, Facebook and Twitter and get contributions.

Get paid
As funds come in, they'll be transferred to PayFast account directly. Deductions will be made for PayFast and Fundraise fees.
