Good afternoon,

I am looking for an affordable (free if possible) fundraising platform for our foundation. I don't need a full fledged database software program. I'm looking for something that will handle online fundraising and donations that will specifically take Venmo, PayPal, and credit card payments through Stripe.

Has anyone used If so, how well is it working for you and would you recommend it? Are you using the free "base" version or the Pro version? Any other information you can provide on GiveButter will be appreciated.

If you have not used GiveButter, do you have another platform would you recommend?

Thanks for your help!


Hi Kathryn,

I hope you get the feedback you are seeking. Personally, I have never heard of the GiveButter fundraising platform -- it is not one of the platforms that I've seen ever mentioned on the TechSoup forums.

However, it might interest you to know that several months ago Tech Impact published their 2020 edition of the consumer's guide to low-cost fundraising software. You might find that resource helpful in helping you decide on a platform as it compares 23 different solutions. You can download the free guide at the link below (requires completing the registration form):
