Crowdfunding is a powerful tool to decentralize the traditional donor model. It allows a large number of people to contribute small amounts of funds, ultimately providing the project with the funds needed to make an impact.
How does BuildPalestine support crowdfunding projects?
BuildPalestine works with projects from concept development all the way to impact measurement. If your project is accepted to the platform, we will work with you to design the crowdfunding campaign, teach you how to mobilize your network, and share your campaign with our growing network.
What is the criteria to select crowdfunding projects?
We look for the following criteria when selecting projects:
– Impact-driven: We work with projects that present solutions with a social impact for the community.
– Innovative: We look for projects that present a creative solution to solve a specific problem.
– Sustainable: We look for sustainable projects or have plans for the project’s sustainability.
– Transparent: We work with projects that are transparent with their supporters and establish a sense of trust.
– Track Record: We work with individuals or organizations with a track record and are well trusted by the community.
Who will handle my donation?
BuildPalestine is just here to connect you with high impact organizations. We do not handle any of the payments directly. Donations are processed through LaunchGood, our official partner.
What happens after I make a donation?
Our team stays in contact with the project after it is successfully completed, and shares their story through our “impact blogs.”
What is the reward for funding projects?
Social impact. Once successfully funded, every project will follow up to share its impact with supporters. Some may also choose to offer creative rewards that you can claim when you donate.
Why do I go to Launchgood once I hit the support button?
Given the fact that we no longer collect and transfer the funds to the organizations, we partnered with Launchgood platform where the money is collected and transferred directly to organizations.
Do you offer an offline payment solution?
You can donate directly to our projects in cash. All cash donations are added as offline donations on Launchgood.
