How to Create a Donation Campaign

IntaSend supports non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and community-based organizations (CBOs) to launch fundraising campaigns with the aim of accomplishing a set goal. The campaigns allow these organizations to share stories of the goal they have set and the impact of the goals when accomplished through the help of the donors. These organizations champion these causes which will have a lasting impact on the lives of the beneficiaries. The donors, potential donors, and organizations can keep track of the progress of contributions toward achieving the set goals.
