How It Works is an online fundraising platform. We provide useful web-based fundraiser applications for use with large groups such as schools, clubs, or teams.

Our primary fundraiser application is an individual and team based direct donation fundraiser with incentives. Individual participants belong to teams (e.g., schools, classes, scout troops), but fundraise as individuals. Participants directly solicit donations from supporters and earn incentives or prizes as they reach custom fundraiser milestones. Supporters are able to donate via, cash, check, or online via credit card and paypal. provides a great deal of organizational tools for fundraiser administrators. Administrators can control prize levels, team organization, participant registration, prize distribution tracking, and a wide array of reporting tools. fundraiser programs are always free to set up and run. We only charge a small fee for online donations. For more information, see the Pricing section below.
