Crowdfunding for Causes

No one likes being cold-called by an organization and asked for money. But most people (especially the kind-hearted) do want to help their friends. Root Funding is crowdfunding for causes — we take the power of person-to-person connections and apply it to fundraising for social good.

Register your cause Launch a campaign

Grow your support network (and your results)

Reach new, inclined-to-give supporters by tapping into the networks of your existing supporters. We see the results, people are more likely to give to friends than organizations, even when the cause is the same. It's grassroots fundraising - the power of people.

Do more good, more easily (and with friends)

You’ve surely heard a lot about “your network,” and now’s your chance to put it to truly amazing use by spreading the word about causes you care about. We handle the details while you bask in the glow of making the world a better place.
