Why not GoFundme, Crowdrise, etc. ?
In fact, many of the fundraising platforms are managing their transactions with the same corporations I’ve tried my hardest to divest from… Chase bank, for example, operates WePay which Gofundme and many other fundraising platforms use. See an example of banks to divest from here.
It is a secure way to transfer money directly from bank account to bank account, there’s no middle account; it is trusted platform by many top banks and credit unions. Popmoney is a product of CheckFreePay, owned by Fiserv; neither of which are on the list of corporate financial institutions to divest from that I know of.
Your bank might even be using Popmoney. It is likely a service that you can setup within your own online banking (in your bill pay section) – see if your bank is participating; if not, register with Popmoney then send support directly to the mission referencing our account email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
*No money, no problem – there are Many ways to support the mission.
The credit union that we bank with provides Popmoney for free, and so 100% of your gift goes toward the mission… many of the fundraising platforms and their ‘transaction gateways’ charge a percentage; 5% of any gift is a real chunk of resources.
Here is a video made by my credit union that explains it nicely, they’ve also made a nice FAQ.
