Participation + Personalization + Automation = SUCCESS
In our experience, SUCCESS in sports crowdfunding boils down to three essential components: Participation, Personalization, and Automation. A lacking in any of these elements can lead to a difficult campaign. But when they work in concert great things happen.
FanAngel's mission is to offer teams, schools, booster clubs, and athletes a platform and service that delivers the highest probability of fundraising success with the least amount of effort and a guaranteed low price.
To deliver on that mission, we offer:
- Low fees -- ~92% of every donation goes to the beneficiary. FanAngel keeps 5% and the credit card fees are ~2.9%. Compare that to other sports crowdfunding sites that charge between 20-30%!!!
- Personalization -- FanAngel supports several personalization features, including our most popular Team model which allows players on a team to have unique URLs for individuals profile photos and goals. We are even prototyping individual player videos! This form of personalization has been shown to nearly double your donation rate and amount.
- Realtime Direct Deposit -- With a few minutes of setup and verification, your non-profit can funds directly deposited. No more waiting for checks at the end of the campaign.
- IRS Compliance - FanAngel follows the high standards for accepting non-profit donations.
- Gold Standard Service (for free) - A FanAngel assistant will help you every step of the way. Working remotely, we can help communicate to families, write scripts, edit video. We can do everything except visitor you site! Full Service in the Cloud.
