A Crowdfunding Platform for Community Projects
Yucca Valley, CA – January 15, 2013 – As organizations involved with community oriented projects around the country optimistically approach the new year, continued and unprecedented shortages in funding are an unfortunate reality of the community support arena. Crowdfunding with FundaGeek represents an excellent opportunity to supplement current funding sources for community support organizations. The FundaGeek Community Support Portal site: www.fundageek.com/community is devoted to assisting organizations secure funding for a broad variety of projects. Community support is by definition a broad area of fund raising that involves projects with a focus on helping whole communities, specific groups within communities, as well as individuals living in communities. FundaGeek can be used as a resource to help push forward important innovative projects.
FundaGeek’s CEO and Co-Founder Daniel D. Gutierrez says “Community support is a very important beneficiary of the crowdfunding ecosystem. Community support budgets are being slashed constantly and important community focused projects need new funding options. With FundaGeek, we provide a new vehicle for funding community projects.”
Crowdfunding is a funding mechanism utilizing the power of crowds through social media. Using social networks, organizations can solicit personal donations in order to fund the budget of their projects. With crowdfunding you raise the needed funds by offering ‘Rewards’ in exchange for ‘Pledges.’ Think of NPR or PBS pledge drives where a large number of donors pledge small amounts in return for simple rewards.
The use of the funds can be varied. FundaGeek is for projects in all areas of community support – construction projects, facilities support, environmental, health and well-being, recreation, education, transportation, outreach and public awareness, beautification, clean-up and much more.
Unlike most crowdfunding sites that use the “all or nothing” funding model where funding is provided only if the goal amount is met, FundaGeek views projects very differently. Organizations get whatever funding the project has attracted by the end of the campaign. We encourage the organizations to resubmit the project for a continued and on-going source of funding. There are no up-front fees to use FundaGeek.
FundaGeek is a crowdfunding platform expressly for community support, technology, scientific research, inventions, and education. In the past several years, crowdfunding has seen tremendous interest from creative people in the arts, music and film, but now with FundaGeek, community support can be funded using crowdfunding techniques.
