    FansRaise - Crowdfunding for the Performing Arts

    How We're Helping: No more 15% platform fees

    Published by The FansRaise Team

    We all know times are tough right now.

    And of course that includes schools and arts programs, many of whom are unsure what next year will bring.

    • Many schools face budget cuts in the wake of economic downturn.
    • Arts programs are scrambling to replace lost revenue.
    • Reliable fundraisers—like bake sales & car washes—are cancelled.

    It’s a difficult time to be planning a marching band season or show choir set. But we can help.

    Funding the arts is what we do.  For years, we’ve been helping ensembles buy gear and enhance their programs.

    This is our "why." — We want to help.
