Circle Fund’s mission is focused exclusively on helping member organizations and nonprofits like yours raise money to support your cause. Although we are experts in developing customer driven CRM, intranets and sales/marketing platforms over the past 15 years, our ultimate goal is to help you raise more dollars regardless of the technology used.  Located in Nelson, British Columbia, Canada, we have a team of dedicated developers with a focus on creating a simple and affordable donor interface for your nonprofit. Circle Fund will save your organization time and effort in fundraising so you can focus on supporting your cause.

We believe strongly in the not-for-profit model. Personally, I have participated and volunteered in a variety of nonprofits over the past 25 years, including the Heart & Stroke Foundation, our local Waldorf School as well as local community causes and conservation societies. In each of these organizations, I have never seen more passionate and engaged volunteers, staff and board members than when they work together. They are not driven to maximize shareholder profits or double-digit constant growth, but to deliver a mission that is true to their hearts and benefits their local community. We also recognize the power of leveraging your peer circles for maximizing fundraising.

We use the latest in secure Amazon EC2 servers and optimized code to bring you the fastest user experience possible. We also take your organization’s privacy very seriously.  Our fundraising platform is driven by the needs and feedback from actual board members, staff and volunteers. We encourage you to suggest new features or report issues as they arise.

Providing hard-working volunteers with recognition, allowing them to securely share files, attend events, and get updates on successes and your mission are all key elements to foster passion, motivation and self-fulfillment. Ensuring staff can monitor fundraising targets and programs, and communicate with the board and volunteers in real-time is essential to running a “tight fundraising ship”. Board members need to be looped into key staff decisions, volunteer-run events and programs to ensure the mission is held true. All members need to know that they are personally contributing and making a difference.
