How does it work?
Simply create a fundraiser page by submitting your information on our Community Page, invite your friends and family and supporters to participate and then shop popular brands’ websites through your How Far Would You Go page. You can even earn cash bonuses through our special perks programs we run at different times during the school year! Shop for yourself and spread the word to family and friends. Every time they shop our popular brand partners through your How Far Would You Go page, you earn more for your cause. Members can also donate directly to your cause via our Donate Now feature.
How much does it cost to use How Far Would You Go?
There are no fees to create a page or withdraw funds raised. We make money when our brand partners pay us a small fee whenever you shop. The only time we charge a fee is to supporters who wish to donate instead of shop - the donor will pay a 6% processing fee. There are no other costs.
Who can fundraise?
Anyone who is inspired by our Featured Active-ists and wants to undertake an adventure of their own for a cause they care about.

Made a purchase but don't see the cash back?
It can take up to 48 hours for our brand partners to notify us before we credit your Fundraiser. Grocery purchases take a bit longer as we don't get notified until after your order is delivered. Hotels and travel purchases are only credited upon completion of your trip, not at time of booking. We'll always send you an email when cash back has been applied to your fundraiser! If it's past 48 hours and you still haven't been notified, forward us your shopping email receipt to [email protected] and we'll credit your account immediately! Also, make sure any ad-blocker software is turned off!
