The founders of Root Funding were inspired by their belief that people generally derive no greater satisfaction than when they simply do something good. A unique inner sense of accomplishment is derived when a person knows that they made a difference.
We also recognize that most non-profits today do not incorporate the power of person-to-person fundraising, and typically rely on more traditional methods such as direct mailings, dinners, events, etc.
Our vision is to tap into a person's innate desire to do good, and provide them with a platform to channel this energy in a way that benefits the non-profits that they support.
Root Funding was created with this in mind. Our goal was to create a simple, yet powerful, tool that enables people to go out and spread the word about their favorite non-profits, and ultimately raise money on their behalf.
Our website does just that. Rootfunding.com brings the incredible power of the internet to grassroots fundraising. We offer a full array of social networking integration, which allows the supporters of a non-profit to instantly and effortlessly spread the word about their fundraising efforts to their entire network of contacts. Through the creation of personalized fundraising pages, supporters can invite friends, family and co-workers to visit their site, learn more about their non-profit and ultimately donate to the organization directly from their page.
The power of our grassroots approach is that when a potential donor is approached by a relative or friend, the chances that a donation will be offered are significantly greater than if that same person was approached by the non-profit itself.
Thank you for visiting our website, and we look forward to counting you as part of the growing network of rootfunding.com members.
