“It was great to have one place to pay international staff as well as reimburse other staff members when needed. We were able to drastically reduce the amount of petty cash we kept on site because we were able easily transfer money to staff when needed.”
“Crowded has given our fraternity the ability to develop financial strategies from the local to the national level. By partnering with Crowded on both the national and chapter level, we have not only achieved annual savings of approximately $10k but also experienced a reduction in reporting time by over 40 hours annually.”
“As PIKE transitioned from a ‘bank-less’ member billing solution to one that required a bank, Crowded was the missing piece to the puzzle. With seamless officer transitions, digital debit cards, and fantastic customer support, it was a no-brainer!”
“We needed a mainstream way to collect dues, as Venmo stopped supporting group accounts. We also liked the feature of allocating funds to team members’ virtual cards.”
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:
Bank accounts that are free to open with no minimum balances & funds that are FDIC-insured up to $250,000 through Blue Ridge Bank.
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.
With Crowded, you can avoid constantly transferring funds between payment apps and banks to access your group’s money. Utilizing embedded finances, Crowded enables your group to bank, collect, and spend with just one platform.
We charge little to no fees.
When collecting funds through Crowded, you’ll have the flexibility to decide whether to cover processing fees or let your payers handle them. When we do charge fees, they are fair and competitive with industry standards.
We provide extra fund protection.
Unlike payment collection apps, funds you keep on Crowded are protected with FDIC insurance for up to $250K, and our banking accounts are completely free to set up – we don’t have any minimum balances or subscription fees.
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.
