Crowdfunding for local causes
As the competition for funding hightens, Not-for-Profits are increasingly turning to new methods to leverage support and stand out in the crowd. One of the latest methods is crowdfunding, with several platforms offering the opportunity to raise funds via a social campaign.
Chuffed is one such platform, crowdfunding only Not-for-Profit and social enterprise projects. They offer zero fees, with 100% of funds raised going directly to the cause. There is the opportunity for the donor to make an optional contribution to fund Chuffed's organisational costs.
Three local projects we've come across lately on Chuffed offering a range of perks for a range of donation sizes:
A free-climbing dome for a primary school:
North Perth free-climbing dome - by North Perth Primary School P&C
A collaborative space for the WA startup community:
Taking Spacecubed to the next level - by Social innovation in Western Australia
A conference inspiring change and connecting thought leaders:
Useful sessions up a notch - by Useful Inc.
