Start a Fundraiser: A new fundraising tool for our nonprofit partners

Empower your top supporters to raise donations for your organization

One of the biggest ways a donor can increase their impact is to raise money for your cause.

However, setting up crowdfunding campaigns can be challenging for overseas nonprofits and their US-based donors.

To make crowdfunding more accessible, Give2Asia is teaming up with to offer their new “Start a Fundraiser” tool to all organizations with an American Friends Fund at Give2Asia. Nonprofits and individual donors can use this tool to create a fundraiser with just a few clicks.

To get started, our Friends Fund partners should find their organization’s fundraising page on

For example, here is the fundraising page for our partner Karen Hilltribes Trust.

Once you find your organization’s page, simply click the “Start a Fundraiser” button on your organization’s page to get started.

The first time you visit, you or your donor will be asked to create an account:

After creating your account or logging in, add a title and description to your fundraiser. For example:

After you click Launch, your fundraiser is live! Use the icons to share your fundraiser on social media:

Before you leave the page, be sure to save the unique URL for your fundraiser so you can share it later!

Here’s the final fundraiser we created for Karen Hilltribes:

Two important notes to keep in mind:

  1. Donations made on will be transferred to Give2Asia once a week. Please allow up to 10 days for them to show up in your Friends Fund.
  2. Friends Fund partners will see a single donation from in their Give2Asia Portal, rather than each donor’s information.

We hope this new tool helps you and your donors mobilize more support for your organization’s important work!
