Trying to raise funds for a project? Why not increase your donation network?
Crowdfunding is a means of getting donations for your project via the web from donors literally across the World. A specific project with specific timelines and goals. An on-line event for example selling tickets for a coffee morning.
Typically, the average project donation target is £15,000 but an individual project target can start from as little as £4,000.
Because of the success of Rotary Clubs who have already taken advantage of this relatively new way of raising funds to support their projects, Rotary has agreed a special start up initiative with the largest global Crowdfunding community for non-profits, Global Giving, a registered charity who have already helped to raise more than $345m from 814,095 Donors for 20,611 projects across 170 Countries.
Global Giving have agreed to allow Rotary to use their existing successful portal, training and support at a reduced cost of 8% which is deducted from donations received. GlobalGiving will also collect any Gift Aid on behalf of the project.
Crowdfunding is a way to go beyond our usual team of fundraisers and receive donations from individuals and Corporates Worldwide. One UK Rotary project has already received over $1,500 from American donors, who, receive tax benefits by donating through the Global Giving platform.
Membership opportunities – Advertising our projects on the web is also a great way to promote our work and of course, people supporting our projects are likely to make good Rotarians themselves.
