If you’re in search of a great Silicon Valley startup story about a couple of classmates who got together and built the next Facebook…well, this isn’t it. Our beginnings are a tad less movie-worthy.
Have you ever tried to plan a fundraiser for your charity, school or church and found your spirit utterly crushed by the experience? Then you’ll definitely be interested in our story.
A few years ago, our founder was feeling the same pain. With 100 students, a large fundraising goal, and just a few resources, he saw the need for what eventually became RallyUp.
We began with a single vision: to make fundraising easier for organizations of every kind.
Over the years, RallyUp has grown into a team of parents, entrepreneurs, thinkers and go-getters that are united in this mission.
We’ve designed the most flexible fundraising platform in existence. Now anyone can raise funds more easily for the organizations and causes they care about.
So give RallyUp a try to start your own great fundraising story!
