Company Summary

Raise5 is an online platform in the nonprofit fundraising space. It allows supporters of nonprofits to provide goods and services to be sold on the site. It's similar to a typical online marketplace except the proceeds of the sales go to the nonprofit of the provider’s choice. This model allows supporters to fundraise for their nonprofit in a new way, while creating a marketplace of goods and services that can be bought in exchange for donations.
