Raise the money your music program needs,
without big fees.

Put more time and money back into your band, choir or orchestra with our donation-based fundraising system that makes fundraising effortless.

  • Low platform fee
  • Done for you
  • 100% secure

Music programs deserve more from their fundraisers.

Fundraise Genius is a donation-based fundraising platform with one goal: To help music programs raise and keep as much as possible.

Here's how it works:

  • step 1

    Onboard in a Flash

    Start a fundraiser without the grunt work. Our easy-to-use platform gathers information in just a few clicks, and our smart system automates the rest.

  • step 2

    Excite Your Supporters

    While your group focuses on practicing and making memories, we send a series of perfectly-timed donation requests on every students’ behalf.

  • step 3

    Raise and Keep More Money

    Yay! You've funded your cause without big fees or doing all the work. And, we've built genuine connections with your donors, so they'll keep rooting for your program.

Always keep at least
85% of what you raise.

Other fundraising companies charge up to 50% in fees and keep their outrageous pricing hidden — not Fundraise Genius. Our low fee is only 12% (plus the 3% credit card processing fee), which means you'll end up raising more for your program, without the hard work.

No confusing benchmarks or sliding scales. Just more money for what matters to you.

Genius for a reason.

  • Completely Done-for-you

    Every part of your fundraiser is managed and backed by powerful technology. Once it launches, see your progress on a custom dashboard that tracks and visualizes everything in real time.

  • 100% Secure Information

    We tightly guard and encrypt all student, potential donor, and donor information. Credit cards are securely processed with Stripe — the world's leading payment processor.

  • Quick Launch

    Just fill in a few details about your program and have your students answer three questions about potential donors in our user-friendly platform — then you’re good to go!

  • Fast Fund Payout

    Your funds are disbursed to your program within just three days of your fundraiser ending. That means you never have to worry about tracking down the money you raised.

  • Personalized Pages & Messages

    You won't find clunky website templates here — your donation page is thoughtfully designed, and every message is handcrafted to champion your cause.

  • Infused with Music Ed Advocacy

    We make a more compelling, research-based case for supporting music ed, and drive home the impact your donors make long after your fundraiser ends. That means authentic support all year round.

We're in it for
all of us.

Fundraise Genius was built by music educators and musicians who know firsthand why the work you do matters.

Trusted by music programs everywhere

Jeff Jones

Marcus High School Band Band Director
Raised $68,000

Fundraise Genius works because it is clear, relevant, and thoughtfully designed. The staff responds immediately and the setup process couldn't be simpler. Their cutting edge process allows donors to feel directly connected to your group's success without overwhelming them. We can't wait to work with Fundraise Genius again!

Eron Smith

Auburn High School Choral Company Choir Director
Raised $30,000

Fundraise Genius was incredible to work with. We have run similar campaigns with other organizations, and Fundraise Genius is at the top of the list. They focus on music programs and know and understand the importance of raising funds. They are attentive to every need, supply great statistics to follow during the campaign, and the user interface is so easy to work with. This was our first year with Fundraise Genius but it will definitely not be our last!

Chris Coughlin

Mission Hills High School Band Band Director
Raised $35,000

This was by far our most successful fundraiser ever. Getting my students started was quick and simple, and I loved that everything was done for us. We’ve used other fundraising companies in the past, and they were pushy and charged outrageous fees. Fundraise Genius is transparent with their low fee, and they helped us raise more than we’ve ever raised before.

Creston Herron

Klein High School Orchestra Orchestra Director
Raised $15,000

This was the simplest fundraiser we have ever done and it yielded a superior result. We cannot thank Fundraise Genius enough for all they did to champion and guide us through this fundraising process!

Lindsay Kellogg

Liberty High School Band Band Director
Raised $21,000

This was the easiest and most successful fundraiser we have ever done. Fundraise Genius was the perfect partner for us during COVID. Our goal was to raise $15,000 for a new band trailer, and we raised more than $21,000! This platform is amazing — I love being able to see the donors and their comments directly on our personalized page. We’re excited to continue running our fundraisers with Fundraise Genius!

Heather Cantwell

Liberty Park Middle School Choir Choir Director
Raised $15,000

In my 23 years of teaching public high school and middle school choral music, Fundraise Genius is absolutely the very best fundraising company I've ever worked with. In two 2 short weeks, my 6th-8th grade students raised more than $15,000. What makes Fundraise Genius stand out above all other companies I've worked with? There are no hidden fees and the profit margin is much higher. Fundraise Genius gets my highest recommendation.

Kyle Winn

Monarch Independent Percussion Executive Director
Raised $10,000

Fundraise Genius is so much more than a fundraising tool. They’re music education advocates who really connected with our donors through a meaningful donation page designed just for our program. Donors were able to see what they were supporting and why. Fundraise Genius is also open and transparent about their super low fee. They also donate back into music ed activities — a win-win-win for everyone that can’t be found anywhere else.

Chris Rugila

Klein Collins High School Band Band Director
Raised $22,000

I have done nearly every fundraiser you can imagine during my career, and I have never found one as easy and profitable as Fundraise Genius. They know what bands need and have created a process that works flawlessly. They’re with you every step of the way. If you are looking for a profitable, low stress, easy way to earn money for your program, then you need to fundraise with Fundraise Genius.

Garren Cuthrell

Heritage High School Instrumental Music Band Director
Raised $25,000

This is my 27th year teaching band and this was the easiest $25,000 I've ever raised with a group. I appreciate that we got to keep so much of our donations. Other fundraising companies charged us 30% or more in fees and made us do most of the work. With Fundraise Genius, we raised a ton without big fees, and they did all the work for us.
