Please Support Us provides an easy and quick way to get your fundraising events online

For a few dollars per month, PSU takes the technical part of online fundraising off your plate so you can focus on marketing and benefiting from your work.

You provide the fundraising information and a PayPal account email address, and we will do the rest

  • We will create a storefront using your group’s name (example: http://PleaseSupportUs.us/SmithHighSchoolBand)
  • We create a Fundraising Event page with details, images, products, prices, disclaimers, and a purchase form. The form connects to your group’s PayPal account for payment processing
  • Your page will send the supported an email receipt and your fundraising admin an notification for each purchase
  • Each purchase can be linked to a live Google Spreadsheet for real-time monitoring for activities

We do not receive or process your supporter’s personal or financial information. PayPal is used to ensure safety and security with your supporter’s information

We maintain updated systems and add-on tools to ensure the highest level of computer security for you and your supporters

Storefronts are maintained on online servers to ensure maximum up time, security, and availability

Subscriptions are billed yearly and due at time of subscription signup

We strive to have your new fundraising event up and running in 24 hours. This may be longer if the event online requirements are numerous and/or complicated
