Your questions,
What is Crowded?

Crowded is a financial platform that offers nonprofit membership groups easy ways to collect, spend and manage money online. 

Some of our standout features include:

  • FDIC pass-through, insurance-eligible accounts* with no fee to open and no minimum balances, and FDIC insurance available on deposits up to $250k through our bank partners Blue Ridge Bank, N.A., and TransPecos Banks, SSB; Members FDIC.

  • Easy digital officer handovers.

  • Digital & physical Visa® debit cards with budgeted amounts for group member expenses.

  • Unified banking for multi-chapter organizations.

  • Payment collection links for dues, member fees and donations.

To set up a Crowded account for your group in minutes, create a free account online or book a demo with one of our team members for any questions or additional support.

Venmo & Paypal? Great for friends, not for your organization. Here’s why Crowded is the better app for collecting dues & for events:

  • Built for Organizations: Manage all your group’s finances in one platform. Create organized collections, track incoming payments, send reminders, and see who’s paid at a glance.
  • Tax-Friendly: Don’t worry about unexpected tax liabilities with Crowded. In 2025, collecting over $600 will result in extra reporting requirements for users of Venmo/PayPal/Zelle. With Crowded, no extra reporting is required!

Crowded is available for use by any membership group or nonprofit organization.

We work with a wide range of nonprofit groups, from national fraternities and sororities to individual booster clubs, PTAs, summer camps, sports teams, girls and boy scouts, and college clubs.
