Start Fundraising is a platform that exists to serve people from all backgrounds and experiences. We believe that our teams should uphold all unique voices and ethnicities in a way that represents the diversity of our world. We are strongest when everyone feels empowered to bring their whole self to work knowing that they will be included and treated equally. As we continue to change the way the world gives, we are committed to celebrating and uplifting the broad spectrum of human experiences within our company.

Working and thriving

Start Fundraising offers a wide range of health insurance options, including medical, dental, and vision, and covers 100% of employee premiums and 80% of spouse and dependents. All employees are eligible for a $600 annual fitness and wellness reimbursement.

With weekly massages, standing desks, fully-stocked kitchens, daily lunches, team off-sites, and monthly social events, we ensure employees are fueled for the good fight while offering opportunities to connect and learn from each other. Plus, many of our offices are dog friendly.

With 10 paid holidays, 17 days of accrued vacation per year, unlimited sick time, three volunteer days, and enhanced parental leaves, we encourage employees to take the time they need to reenergize.

Start Fundraising contributes $50/month to employees commuting to and from work (public transit and/or parking). We also offer Caltrain GoPasses for our Bay Area commuters.

We are proud to have a Gives Back program where employees nominate fundraisers weekly for donations from Start Fundraising. Additionally, we organize quarterly volunteer events in each office to give back to our local communities.

Start Fundraising wants to invest in its employees’ financial futures, which is why we offer competitive salaries and a 401(k) retirement plan with company matching.
