Q: How does the program work?
A: Simply register online to get your free fundraising web site and online magazine store, which you can personalize for your group. Then, use the Email Tool to send personalized emails to your group members announcing the launch of your group's fundraising campaign. Group members then use the Email Tool to invite their friends and family from coast to coast to support your group. Supporters visit your online magazine store to buy, renew or extend their favorite magazine subscriptions online from a selection of over 650 popular titles at up to 85% off newsstand prices. Your group keeps up to 40% profit of all purchase amounts.

Q. Does my profit percentage vary from item to item?
A. Every item purchased through your online fundraiser will yield a different percentage. Some items, like Personalized Gift Items, Collegiate Items or Holiday Décor are quite inexpensive so your profit will be lower. For more expensive items like annual magazine subscriptions, your profit will be as much as 40%.
Q. When and how do I receive my profit?
A. You'll receive your first profit check 30 days after your first sale, provided you've made a minimum of $10 in sales. Checks will be sent to the address provided in the "Edit Info" section of your Campaign Manager. Please ensure this address is entered correctly and kept current. Note that if you are part of a larger organization, the profit check may be sent directly to that organization.
Q. Can I create multiple campaigns?
A. Yes. You can create multiples campaigns using the same login. Simply log into your account and click Create Campaign in the top right hand corner. You will then fill in the fields and create a new campaign. You can repeat the same process if you are looking to run several.
Q. How do I terminate my online fundraiser/my My.Fundraising account?
A. Administrators can end a campaign by logging in and clicking the 'End Campaign' link at the top right of the screen. PLEASE NOTE: Ending a fundraiser immediately removes your access and you will no longer be able to login to our platform.
Q. How do I remove Members?
A. If you wish to be removed, please call our Online Support at 1-866-825-2921 or email SalesSupport.EFR@fundraising.com.
Q. Why isn't my name appearing as a member on my Group's page?
A. First, ensure you've registered as a member via your Group's fundraising page. Registering on the My.Fundraising.com homepage will NOT tie you to your group's campaign. If that's been done and you still don't see your name, login to your Dashboard, click on the Personalize Page tab, and insert your name into the Web Address box there: Once completed, click your Save Changes button and voila - you'll appear!.
