You can always keep what you raise on ioby, even if it's less or more than your original fundraising goal. ioby's "flexible finish" policy allows you to change your campaign deadline, revise your budget, and update your fundraising goal if needed. We understand what it's like to lead grassroots projects, and that sometimes, plans change.
Here are some tried and true scenarios in which flex finish comes into play:
Scenario 1: You're close to reaching your fundraising goal, but your volunteer workday is a coming up soon. You know you can get the project done with slightly less funds than you budgeted for and you want to disburse funds to purchase materials you need for your workday.
Flexible Finish: Send your Success Strategist an email with a revised budget describing how you'll complete your project with fewer funds raised than you originally planned.
Scenario 2: You're in the middle of a fundraising campaign and it's going better than you ever expected. You think you can probably raise more money than you originally planned.
Flexible Finish: Send your Success Strategist an email with a revised budget describing how you'll complete your project with more funds raised than you originally planned.
