GoFundraise and Everyday Hero - Easy online fundraising

Both of these fundraising sites make it easy to raise funds by allowing you to set up your own webpage for free. They take care of all the paper work and automatically issue tax receipts to everyone who makes a donation. This means you can spend your time focusing on your event versus administration.
