Members of Pi Kappa Alpha combined to raise over $3.3 million for various local and national charitable causes during the 2016-17 academic year. The International Fraternity has partnered with CrowdChange to assist with organizing, promoting, and fundraising for your philanthropic efforts for the 2017-18 academic year.

This partnership came about as several chapters experienced issues with fundraising, including tax liabilities for individuals using personal bank accounts to collect funds raised.

Additionally, CrowdChange works with Greek life chapters all over the country and has been extremely successful helping to take their philanthropy events to the next level.

CrowdChange provides the following:

  • Team Fundraising Pages
  • Individual Fundraising Pages
  • Ticketing Feature
  • Downloadable Guest Lists
  • Leader Boards & More

Chapters can see how their event compares to other chapters and get ideas for different kind of events. Chapters that used this system, effectively doubled their fundraising compared to previous year.

CrowdChange does charge a processing fee for donations, but the fee (5% plus credit card fees) is lower than other sites such as GoFundMe for standard VISA and Mastercard transactions.

Online leader boards for your event can help propel donations to the next level.

Additionally, CrowdChange has unique additional features to help chapters raise more money, including a Snapchat bonus donation feature. When people donate or buy tickets to a chapter’s event through CrowdChange, they receive unique “CrowdChange Captions”. Each person can simply send CrowdChange a Snapchat with that caption to earn a bonus $1 donation.

Note: The International Fraternity does not derive any semblance of income from this partnership. This is a service established based on stated need from various chapters. The International Fraternity paid a flat fee to establish Pi Kappa Alpha branding and enable access for chapters.
