It’s no surprise that crowdfunding campaigns continue to be the most popular platform on the internet for raising money. Thanks to crowdfunding websites like YouHelp, a person or organization can now easily create a crowdfunding campaign, instantly start raising funds and receive information and access to tools that support the user in managing the campaign successfully.
Unlike other crowdfunding campaign websites, YouHelp offers live campaign support, charges 0% platform fees & allows immediate access to the funds as they are collected.
One very important reason YouHelp isn’t like other crowdfunding platforms, is that it was created by GrantWatch, a grant listing service website to fill the void for when grants are not currently available or when an immediate fundraising need must be met.
GrantWatch has been the most trusted source of available grants for over a decade. Libby Hikind, founder and CEO, described her reason for building YouHelp as,
“We came across so many people and organizations that needed to start raising funds immediately. We really needed to be able to offer them an immediate solution, so we developed YouHelp.”
“We can now offer GrantWatch subscribers the means to start raising money right away.”
“Not only does YouHelp provide the campaign creator with the means to collect contributions, it also provides donors with 2 easy payment processor options when making a donation.”
When a campaign is created, the campaign manager has the ability to link both WePay & PayPal processors to their donation page. Having both options really helps with easily accepting donations and is recommended to every campaign manager. Once verified, campaign contributions are delivered to the account as they are collected and can be transferred to the campaigns bank account within one to two business days. This means the campaign funds are delivered immediately.
Once a campaign has collected its first donation of $5 or more, the campaign is set to “go live” for YouHelp optimization and campaign support.
Strategy is key when promoting or marketing a campaign and YouHelp campaign managers are given the tools and a campaign success manager to walk them through the process.
Campaign or sign up support is as-easy-as calling 1(888) 240-4194 M-F 9am-6pm EST. Not only is live support available, it is encouraged. Other valuable tools are in the “Tips and Templates” section of your campaign account which includes a team builder form, video creation support, a press release template as well as campaign email organization.
It’s clear to see why YouHelp continues to climb in the ranks amongst the crowdfunding website giants. This rapid growth is reminiscent of the great battle between David vs Goliath. YouHelp may not be the GoFundMe or Kickstarter industry giants with the expensive sword but it certainly has the heart.
CEO Libby went on to explain, “The GrantWatch group of websites continue to evolve and are forever growing to meet the needs of nonprofits, communities, businesses, entrepreneurs, and individuals and YouHelp is the heart of them all. We didn’t just wake up one day and start a crowdfunding website. We created YouHelp so we could help people who are experiencing financial crisis or looking to help, improve or change the world.”
