Fundraising

Kind.Fund is an online fundraising platform.  

Level Up Village is part of Kind.Fund’s Partner Program. If schools decide to fundraise for a Level Up Village course through Kind.Fund, they can:

  • Save 50% on platform fees (half the price of GoFundMe and “free” sites like Crowdfunder and Generosity.com); for every $10,000 raised, keep an extra $250.00
  • Transfer funds automatically to a bank account
  • Be officially endorsed by Level Up Village on kind.fund
  • Access all donor data
  • Keep all of the funds donated regardless of their goal achievement

To learn more, and have your campaign be officially endorsed by LUV, please check out this website and contact us.
