Enable secure, digital payments

Enable modern payments with industry-leading security and PCI compliant transaction management.

SuccessFund partners with the largest payment management companies in the world to ensure compliance with financial regulations. These partners rigorously review SuccessFund's technology implementations, systems, and processes to ensure all payments and deposits are safe and secure.


Accept the payments people prefer

Start accepting payments from Venmo, Apple Pay, Google Pay, Paypal, credit cards, and more. Allowing patrons to pay how they prefer means friction-free transactions and leads to higher results.

Avoid shadow transactions that happen through back channels like personal accounts, and instead ensure all payments route directly to approved, direct-deposit, organization accounts.


Say 'Yes' to Venmo

Allow Venmo payments the right way by integrating Venmo into a district-approved process. Eliminate the risks of personal Venmo accounts, and instead, allow patrons to select Venmo as a payment option at checkout. This way, you can gather any other information your programs need to account for and receipt transactions appropriately.

Take payments at the gate, door, concession stand, or anywhere.

Seamlessly take in-person payments and have every transaction be accounted for on your campaign page. You can take credit cards, Apple Pay, Google Pay, even Venmo, all in-person. The transaction fee for in-person payments is discounted for smaller transaction sizes making concession stands, ticket sales, or any other product under $10 cheaper for your patrons.


In-person payments

Accept payments in person for admission, concessions, and storefronts in and around your school.

Accept cards of any kind, and even take Venmo at the door using the SuccessFund mobile app. Participation is limited, so please let the SuccessFund team know if you'd like early access.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are a few things we think you should know.

How does this work with our financial system?

SuccessFund makes deposits to your designated accounts each week. With each weekly deposit, you'll also have a detailed breakdown outlining where those funds go. You can even export a breakdown of every corresponding transaction that you can upload to your finance system to keep everything perfectly in sync.

What about payment processing fees?

While you won't find monthly, upfront, or recurring fees on SuccessFund, it does cost money to process payments online. At checkout, donors are encouraged to help cover our transparent, per-transaction fee of $1.00 + 5%. Over 90% of supporters choose to cover that fee meaning 100% of the donation goes directly to the program.

How do I know if I can use SuccessFund?

SuccessFund does not currently send money to individuals - so if you are part of a school or school district, you can use SuccessFund, and funds will be sent to your finance department. To find out if your organization is using SuccessFund to process fundraiser approvals, all you need to do is create your free account. Enter your work email address above, and we'll route you to the right place.

Our policy is "No Venmo," so why is this OK?

Peer-to-peer payment platforms like Venmo are a challenge for schools because the transactions are made between individuals without any visibility to the school or district. With SuccessFund, you can finally accept Venmo dollars without a user-to-user payment. The user does not need to open their Venmo app in search of your account. Instead, they'll visit your campaign, and select Venmo as their payment method at checkout. This provides the transparency districts require.
