Crowdpac

Crowdfunding platform for political campaign fundraisers

5.0/5 (5 reviews)

Crowdpac overview

Crowdpac is a crowdfunding platform specifically designed for politics, giving public candidates who wish to run for office an opportunity to harness support. By simply creating personalized campaign pages that can represent single or multiple recipients, candidates can publicize a political message and ask for monetary donations and pledges around conditional crowdfunding goals while tracking donor sources and updating a community on progress. Landing pages, receipts, donation asks, share buttons and even email notifications can all be customized to best fit a campaign message, while core issues can be tagged to help a community find the candidate most aligned to the issues they hold dearest. Public endorsements can then be posted to a page, giving backers within the community the chance to share thoughts and stories around why the candidate is worthy of support.

Political candidates and organizations also receive all of the pledged donations with supporters covering fees for payment processing. Crowdpac allows payment methods and credit or debit cards to be saved into their accounts to facilitate one-click donations, with the option available to toggle a pledge as a recurring monthly donation. In addition, candidates can manage more direct communications with supporters with automated email notifications updating on progress without the need for CRM systems or their own campaign websites.

We raised some money for our prospective candidate of choice. He did eventually jump in the race - we're thrilled! I can't say that CrowdPac is what drew the candidate into the race, but I couldn't hurt. Initially, there were a number of options to choose from and I was slightly intimidated, but the customer support was great. The grassroots PAC I run used CrowdPac to raise money for a prospective gubernatorial candidate we were working to draft. The platform offered an easy to use way to raise money for a candidate before they even announce - showing your candidate of choice that they would have support were they to run. Pretty powerful!

Benefits

Crowdpac promises to enable political candidates who aren't typically those with private financial backing to run for office by launching a campaign for financial fundraising and community backing with a free, wholly online platform.

Candidates create customizable crowdsource campaign pages representing single or multiple recipients, with donations records and source links all recorded and fully trackable to see exactly where money has come from.

Receipts, donation requests, share buttons and email notifications can all be customized to match an overall campaign message, while key political issues can be tagged to aid possible supporters in finding the message that suits them.

Real time reporting features track and summarize campaign performance, tracking donation progress against conditional fundraising goals via a dashboard-based UI.

Crowdpac claims to build social validation and shareability into its features, sitting seamlessly alongside the crowdfunding and political fundraising capabilities associated with the platform as standard.
