Our Story

We were always quick to buy a fundraising discount card to support a local high school athlete or boy scout raising money for their activities. But the plastic cards we bought would often get misplaced or even worse we would forget to use them when shopping or eating out with our kids. So we created SmartRaiser to put the fundraising discount card where it should be on your phone! The SmartRaiser Mobile Apps for iOS and Android help teams, schools, clubs and churches store their discount cards on a smartphone - allowing supporters to receive greater value and even reminders when hear an available discount. Furthermore, groups can sell their cards online from a text message, keeping everyone more safe by not having to go door-to-door or deal with handling money.

Our fundraising pilot partners started asking us if our technology platform could help them with their other fundraisers such as selling tickets to their fundraising event, food items or holiday products. It turns out it could! Our solutions have been used to sell cookie dough, popcorn, beef jerky, pretzels, pizzas, trash bags, discount cards, mobile discount cards, donations and even to take sign-ups. Just about anything is possible.

We know fundraising is hard, as our three founders have a combined twelve active kids. We've spent countless hours and late nights creating flyers, sending emails, reconciling order forms and delivering candy. We want to create relevant technology to increase participation, performance and profits for school, team, and club fundraising.
