  • Another great online fundraising tool is Fundly. It didn't exist when you wrote that presentation, so I'll cut you some slack :) Fundly's tools, in addition to raising money, also have a robust backend to help you manage pledges, track individual fundraisers, and make sure you're compliant with all fundraising laws. Check it out!
