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

Make fundraising for your music program simpler with an entirely done-for-you system that puts more time and money back into your band, choir or orchestra.

  • Low fees
  • Done for you
  • 100% Secure

Music programs deserve more from their fundraisers.

Fundraise Genius is a crowdsource fundraising platform built by die-hard music ed advocates with one goal: to help music programs everywhere raise and keep more money.

Here's how it works:

  • step 1

    Gather Information.

    Students answer just three questions about potential donors in our secure, easy-to-use platform.

  • step 2

    Reach Your Supporters.

    The rest is hands off for everyone — we send a series of perfectly-timed donation requests on your students’ behalf.

  • step 3

    Get Donations.

    You raise the money you need for your goals effortlessly and get your money, fast.

Always keep at least
85% of what you raise.

Other fundraising companies charge up to 50% in fees — not Fundraise Genius. Our fees are among the lowest and most transparent: just 12% plus the 3% from the credit card processor.

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. That means more time rehearsing and making memories as an ensemble.

  • 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

    Launching your fundraiser is simple. We just need a few details about your program. Then your students submit potential donor data online in our easy-to-use platform, and 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

    Your donation page is thoughtfully designed, and every message is handcrafted to champion your program’s specific cause.

  • Infused with Music Ed Advocacy

    Our platform isn’t just a fundraising tool. We make a compelling, research-based case for supporting music education — and your cause — to every donor, across every touchpoint.

Fundraising that benefits the
greater good.

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

That’s why 10% of our profits go to a music education charity on your behalf.

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.
