  • How do I get my money?

    • Once your fundraising campaign begins receiving online donations, you can easily request a withdrawal at any time. Don't worry, withdrawing money does not affect the progress meter that's displayed on your Geared2Give campaign. Simply click the 'Withdraw' button inside your Geared2Give account and follow the on-screen instructions. You can withdraw your balance directly to your bank account. US users may also request a check.

  • Most withdrawals take between 5 and 7 business days. You can choose between an electronic bank transfer or paper check delivery during the withdrawal process.

  • Can I raise money for a friend?

    • Of course! Geared2Give has created an easy way for your beneficiary to securely access the funds you have raised. Through Geared2Give they will be given direct access to the money you have raised for them. Please note, you will not be able to enter their check or bank information during the withdrawal process, they will need to do this themselves. Contact us to set up withdrawals for your beneficiary.

  • Does it cost anything?

    • While it's free to create and share your online fundraising campaign, Geared2Give will deduct a 10% fee from each donation that you receive. Since our fee is deducted automatically, you'll never need to worry about being billed or owing us any money. A small processing fee of about 3% will also be deducted from each donation. Please see Pricing & Fees for more info.

      Beware of other services that claim to be 100% Free - they'll actually charge your donors instead.

  • Do my donors get charged?​

  • No, never. Other sites might charge your donors without you knowing it, but we would never do that. Donors are charged only the amount they choose to donate to you and that's it.

  • Are there any time limits?

    • Nope. With Geared2Give there are no deadlines or time-limits. Your campaign will remain live until you choose to stop donations or remove the campaign altogether. Most users leave their campaigns live indefinitely as a lasting memory of all the wonderful comments and support they received.

  • What if I don't reach my goal?

    • No problem. With Geared2Give, you keep each and every donation you receive. Reaching your goal is not required.

  • How will I know if someone donates?

    • You'll receive an email notification each time a donation is made to your Geared2Give campaign.

  • Do I have to use my real name?

    • Yes. Geared2Give is a site that rewards authenticity and transparency. However, you may choose to hide your campaign from being listed on Geared2Give during the Sign-Up process.

  • Can I keep my campaign private?

    • While you can choose to hide your campaign from appearing in Geared2Give's Public Search Directory, anyone who has your Geared2Give campaign link will be able to access your campaign. There's no way to keep your campaign 100% private.

  • Who will donate to my campaign?

    • Your campaign will be supported by the people in your life. This includes friends, family members, loved ones, coworkers, classmates and teammates. Only after your campaign receives the support of the people you personally know can it begin to attract the support of others.

  • What if I'm not comfortable sharing this with friends & family?

    • Sharing your campaign with friends and family is a part of what makes Geared2Give work so well. Not only will the people in your life support your campaign, but they will also help spread the word to their friends as well. Geared2Give users should not expect to receive support from strangers.
