Fund-catching refers to the receipt of donation payments from third party providers where the recipient nonprofit performs little to no marketing in order to generate the donations and receives little to no donor data with the payments. Fund-catching is a term used by some nonprofit fundraising professionals to describe how they can be outsiders to fundraising campaigns and events run at the workplace and facilitated through online giving platforms.
