Razoo is a crowdfunding platform that allows nonprofit organizations and individuals to collect donations online. The company is based in Alexandria, Virginia.

Overview[edit]

Razoo Global Corporation was founded in 2007[1] to provide underfunded nonprofit organizations with a platform for online fundraising. In 2012, Razoo surpassed $135 million raised on the platform, due in part to its participation in 24-hour "giving events" such as Giving Tuesday.[2] The platform surpassed $450 million raised in 2015.[3] To date, Razoo has hosted over 80 giving events[4] and has surpassed $500 million in donations.

In April 2016, Razoo opened its platform to individuals looking to fundraise for personal causes, such as medical bills, fertility treatments, and pet expenses.[5]

Business model[edit]

Razoo is a for-profit company that sustains its business by retaining a percentage of donations made on its platform. Razoo retains a 4% platform fee for charitable fundraisers and a 5% platform fee for personal cause fundraisers, plus 2.9% + 30¢ per transaction for credit card processing costs.[6] Razoo does not enforce penalities for failure to meet fundraising goals.

Charitable donations on Razoo are regranted to nonprofit organizations by the Razoo Foundation, a donor-advised fund.[7]
