About Us

iStock_000034926076_FullWe first birthed the idea of AccelRaise as a necessity for our children’s school fundraising needs – that was over three years ago. We noticed that the “old-school” type of fundraising our nearby schools, club sports teams, and non-profit organizations were using were obsolete. In today’s world of rapid technological growth, we knew that something had to change – fast.

Fast forward three years, and AccelRaise is now a staple in over 100+ schools, sports teams, and non-profit organizations. AccelRaise combines the great fundraising ideas of teachers, parents, coaches, and organization managers into one, and brings those ideas onto an online platform where those beautiful ideas can flourish.

By bringing traditional fundraising online you are able to spread your cause across the world with one click; increasing donations dramatically. Since it’s conception, AccelRaise has truly been about the user experience, helpfulness, kindness, transparency, and the betterment of our community as a whole – and we wholeheartedly plan on keeping it that way.

With AccelRaise you can double, and even triple your fundraising goals. Our web based platform is secure, easy to use, and makes it easy for the average person to set up their own event, keep track of fundraising, and always be at ease since everything runs itself! 

Whether it be a golf tournament, fun-run, or anything in-between, AccelRaise will make your fundraising process easier, more exciting, and more profitable than ever before!
