Raising money is an important part of the most successful teams, leagues and camps. We can help you reach your goals more quickly and with less effort. ActiveGiving is the perfect approach for broadening your fundraising efforts. The campaign management tool is easy-to-use and specially designed to manage your entire fundraising program.

The ActiveGiving software program helps you collect donations directly through your eteamz web site or any web site on the Internet. Once the campaign web site is formed, individual and team fundraisers create their own secondary web pages to track their efforts.

ActiveGiving's success stems from the simple contribution collection process. Fundraisers no longer have to sort through exhaustive paperwork and individual checks. Contributors make pledges online using a credit card and automatically receive immediate email confirmation and a tax receipt email without any orchestration from the fundraiser. The online system tallies all the contributions, dynamically tracks all top contributors and fundraisers, and reports all donation data. Checks for donation proceeds are mailed out once per month.

The simple collection process allows fundraisers to spend more time marketing the cause and soliciting donations. The result is the opportunity to generate significantly more money for your campaign. So get started right away!
