How does it work?
People love telling and hearing amazing stories.
You simply share a story and indicate your worthy cause. Your story will become a Chapter, and your cause will be linked to your Chapter. A reader can choose to donate to your cause by indicating which Chapter you wrote.
Chaptrz makes it incredibly easy to raise money for your cause. You can help by sharing your campaign with your friends through social media.
Will you accept any story?
Stories must be at least 500 words, but no more than 2,000 words. Please write them in a text editor first, and then paste them into the Share Your Story form.
We’ll review each story and edit them as appropriate.
Stories can be funny, heartwarming, tragic, adventurous…they can be about anything. They’re your stories. Hopefully, they’re true, but they don’t have to be.
Please don’t use inappropriate language or topics that may offend someone. When your story is published, we’ll send you a link, so you can share it with your friends.
Is it safe?
Chaptrz features the very best in secure payment encryption technology, and we don’t store your credit card number.
How do I know if someone has donated to my cause?
On our Leaderboard, we indicate the gross amount of donations a cause has received.
How do I get my money?
We send checks to authors at the end of each month.
Does it cost anything to share a story?
It’s free to submit your story and start generating funds for your cause.
Do I have to reach a goal?
Nope. You will receive all of the funds your story generates, less credit card and administration fees.
Do I have to use my real name when I submit a story?
Yes. This will add to your credibility and allow readers to immediately recognize the authors they know.
Is my country supported?
Currently, the only supported country and currency includes: United States of America ($USD).
What about taxes on the funds I receive for my cause?
Unfortunately, we’re unable to provide specific tax advice since everyone’s situation is different. Please consult with a tax professional in your area.
What’s the secret to a successful campaign?
If you’re raising money for something you strongly believe in, chances are that people in your life will be eager to support you. Chaptrz gives you easy-to-use features to share your story with your friends, loved ones and community. Sharing your campaign through your social media channels is the most important thing you can do.
Can I raise money for anything?
As always, common sense goes a long way here. DO raise money for causes that are purposeful, exciting and inspiring to others. DON’T break any local laws.
How can I share my campaign?
Every Chapter is given a unique link that’s easy to share with others. Sharing your fundraising campaign link is easy using email and social media channels.
How do I know my donation will go to the cause?
When authors submit a story, they pledge to give 100% of the funds we send them to the cause they support. But we have no legal way to ensure that they do.
You can choose to donate only to people you know and trust, or you can choose a lower donation amount until you build up a trust with that author.
Will my contact information be shared with the author?
No. Your information is kept confidential.
How much are Chaprtz fees?
Chaptrz has a 5% administration fee and a 2.9%, plus $.30 credit card fee per transaction. These fees are deducted from the proceeds of the sale. The purchaser does not pay them.
