Any charitable group or organization can run a fundraiser on RallyUp. Having a 501(c)(3) designation is not necessary unless you are running a raffle fundraiser.
Individuals and businesses can also start a fundraiser, but the funds must benefit a charitable group or nonprofit directly. The funds will be sent directly to the benefiting organization, so there’s no need to worry about funds reaching their destination.
That said, RallyUp doesn't accommodate fundraising for personal causes. We're entirely focused on being the best fundraising platform for nonprofits and charity groups.
