How will this help you raise more money?
A deadline creates a sense of urgency, motivating supporters to donate sooner rather than later. You will also receive a notification when your deadline is approaching, as a reminder to reach out to your supporters for the last few donations! It will NOT automatically stop your campaign or prevent you from keeping the money you raise.

Still have some questions? No worries, see how Question and Answer section:
Q: When should I select a certain date?
A: If you need funds for a scheduled event, scheduled or critical medical service, travel timing or some other time sensitive deadline.

Q: When should I select a specific number of days? How many days?
A: If you are not guided by a specific calendar date but still want to create urgency for donors via the countdown effect. The default is 50 days and we recommend selecting no shorter than 14 days.

Q: Do I have to set a deadline?
A: No. If you are uncertain on the specific date when you need funds, you can select “no deadline.” Make sure to add a story update explaining reason for no deadline.


Q: Can I change my deadline once my campaign is launched?
A: Yes, as long as you have not passed the deadline, you can change it at any time.

Q: What if I have already started a FundRazr?
A: If you have already started a campaign and you have NOT collected any donations, you can set a deadline on your Manage page. If you have already collected donations, you are not able to set a deadline.

Q: When the deadline has passed, will it stop my campaign?
A: No, it will NOT automatically stop your campaign or prevent you from keeping the money you raise.
