What is the story behind FUNraiser?

FUNraiser was created because we (Graham, Young and Kenneth) needed a way to raise money for a charity for a trip of a lifetime; the Mongol Rally. Fundraising has always felt like a chore both to the givers and the receivers. We found that traditional fundraising can result in annoying overlooked emails and outreach for great charities that our friends and family would otherwise love to donate to and be a part of. This can lead to many fundraisers paying their own charity donations out of pocket just to avoid uncomfortable conversations about money.
We wanted a fundraising process that was ... well just plain enjoyable. Why shouldn’t raising money for important causes be fun? Our goal was to create a platform that brings the fundraiser and the donor closer together. Having no access to this in our own fundraising experience, we decided to build it.
