    YouCaring Review by For Robyn With love

    Pros

    Setting up the donation page was very easy and intuitive. Adding offline donations has been a great feature, as many people have been donating cash or cheque, and we want to include them in our list of supporters. Adding updates for our supporters to read up on our story has been a great feature to the site as well. We love that 100% of the donation goes to us, other than the percentage PayPal takes. Overall, we have had a very positive view of YouCaring.

    Cons

    The connection with PayPal has been a headache. Many times the online payment processing has gone down for hours or days at a time and we have not been informed by YouCaring, or PayPal, but by potential donors. This is stressful for us as every dollar counts and we would like to be made aware if the online payment option is down for any reason, so we can work quickly to rectify it and hopefully not lose any more donors.

    Ease of Use

    Fantastic Service and Personal Care

    Pros

    It was very easy to setup and use the site. The staff at YouCaring were very helpful and assisted us in any problems we had. Their fee-less approach was what first drew us to the website but I am happy we ended up there. They were both very helpful in getting our campaign on the right track and in making sure we had everything we needed to help my nephew.

    Cons

    While the websites started out without many features they actually listened to some of my suggestions as well as implemented updated pretty quickly. So they added features that we were hoping for throughout the fundraiser.

    paddle for her battle

    Pros

    The fundraiser page was very easy to set up and keep everyone up to date with pictures and even video through youtube. The fee was thw best after spending abour a week looking for a well run professional page youcaring was the best. When you have time due to taking care of a very ill child the last thing you want is more added to your load.

    Cons

    I have nothing bad to say. Everything was straight forward and easy to use..

    Ease of Use

    Ease of use, minimal fees are key to YouCaring

    Pros

    There is much to recommend about the YouCaring.com website for setting up donations, especially if the organization or person seeking donations has a strong online presence. Setting up the page was quite easy and intuitive. It took me roughly 90 minutes to find, research, compose, and publish the YouCaring page we used to raise money for Team Dain, a non-profit dedicated to raising money for medical treatment for Dain Dillingham. While there is a standard credit card processing fee (a fee no site I could find or have found since waves), YouCaring.com takes no cut themselves which makes it easier to convince people to donate and helps groups reach their goals quicker. Processing credit card donations is the most valuable asset of a site like YouCaring.com. If you only do brick and mortar fundraising with a physical location for checks to be mailed you will alienate a majority of donors. People from across the United States were able to easily donate to Team Dain because the credit card process streamlined the process and presented donors with a familiar system.

    Cons

    The only issue I had was linking the YouCaring site to social media, but not because it did not work properly. Instead, I found that creating posts on Facebook worked best, especially when the recipient of our donations started posting to his own page. I could not share these posts on YouCaring and the terms of agreement for YouCaring to link social media to the site give me pause as it allows access to your groups followers. I wanted to avoid any unsolicited contacts and therefore did not use the social media syncing provided by YouCaring.

    Excellent Fundraising Site - Easy to Use

    Pros

    The website is very easy to use. Every question I had regarding how to set up the fundraiser, how the donations could be made, and how the individual receiving the funds could access them, were answered in the FAQ's. It was very easy to promote the fundraiser through Facebook. Some people held auctions on their Facebook pages with people offering to donate different items. The high bidders then went to the YouCaring site and paid for the item they won by making a donation on the site. I like the fact that people could choose to help pay for the cost of running the website by adding a couple of dollars to their donation, and if they didn't want to they didn't have to.

    Cons

    There was nothing I didn't like about the site.

    Great free website

    Pros

    You can easily share in FaceBook. It is free to,use which my wife thought was great. It was pretty simple,to use compared to some other sites we looked at. We raised about $7500 for my mother in law without a hitch. At first I didn't want to do this online, but actually was surprised at how many people wanted to help. Actually had people thanking me for putting it up.

    Cons

    Nothing really. We ran a campaign to help,with my mother in laws surgery and it worked great
