Linking the passionate nobody to the world of possibilities

As a social entity/non-profit fundraising is my problem. We have plans/ideas, we see what's on ground, and we have a passion for work but no funds to implement. We've been able to get some little donations but promotion is really lucking. We've tried to use the links in each and every post on Facebook but in vain.

Pros

I haven't created the website but am so much interested in the link sharing, I can use my page on their website as my website on my Facebook profile. People can easily access my donation button, donations can be done into different currencies and withdrawn in dollars

Cons

It's not mobile friendly, it disturbs when using a mobile device. Images are so much limited. No help to promote our projects to donors. No clear follow up and close relationship with the subscribers. There should be an online-physical appearance

Reasons for Switching to GivingWay

They are strict for nothing and limited in coverage like GoFundMe doesn't deal with Africa

Givingway is generally a great platform

I am raising funds for my church through givingway. Many have been able to donate to my ministry.

Pros

•It's available in very many countries including African countries where I live. •I easily connected it to my website. People that visit my website easily donate through givingway. •The requirements to register an account with Givingway are not very stringent hence enabling many to use it. •It's very easy to use. •Great customer care. •It has several giving options including PayPal.

Cons

•Small and faint font sizes of the giving level descriptions. •The giving levels descriptions only display when one clicks on the giving amounts. This doesn’t easily motivate donors to click on the giving levels. •Givingway limits on the number of giving level amount options. •Givingway doesn’t display at once all the photos of a given campaign: One should be able to easily see all the photos of the campaign as he or she scrolls and reads through a given campaign. •Givingway only displays on top the campaigns that have raised most money so newly created campaigns and campaigns that have raised little funds easily go unnoticed. •Givingway doesn’t provides an option where campaigns are promoted through newsletters and social media at a fee. •The platform is slightly expensive.
