If Lesley Mansford has her way, Razoo will soon be as familiar to you as Kickstarter.
Razoo is a company that’s like a Kickstarter for nonprofit causes, an online platform that facilitates crowdsourced fundraising. And though she’s only been at the helm for nine months as Razoo’s CEO, Mansford has presided over the company’s biggest growth in its six year history.
To date, Razoo’s platform has channeled $97 million to more than 12,000 nonprofits, $60 million of which has been raised by individuals and organizations since September, Mansford tells Fast Company. “The momentum is incredible,” she asserts, but she’s eager to keep building and cement Razoo’s position as a leader in the social giving space.
