Crowd funding is a new way of funding a project or venture by raising money from a large number of people who each contribute a relatively small amount, typically via the internet.

What is the difference between fixed and open projects?

When financing a fixed project, the money collected will only be transferred to the NPO if the project has reached the defined funding target within the set deadline. Therefore, your credit card will only be charged for financing a fixed project if the project has been successfully funded. Funding an open project allows the NPO to access the collected donation money, regardless of the project's funding target. If an open project is funded, your card will be charged once the funding period has expired.

A project is a clearly defined endeavor of an NPO or a private individual supported by an NPO (only possible with I care for you), which has been approved by one of our partners for crowdfunding. Projects are reviewed to assess their goals, strategy and reliability. With a campaign, individuals or groups can support a project. In doing so, you define your own donation target in order to support the overall project. The message can be ideally disseminated with the launch of a social media campaign.

The volunteering marketplace matches individuals with assignments based on their professional skills and language requirements. Non-profits can post assignment for skills such as communications, marketing, advertisement, technology, HR, accounting, etc. Volunteers are automatically notified when projects matching their skills become available.

Assignments to the volunteer marketplace can be posed to both closed user groups, and only employees have access to these assignments. Non-profits can also pose assignment to the public marketplace, which is open to everyone.

All non-profits can apply to the marketplace and we work with them to ensure that they are the organizations really are trying to help drive social change. Once accepted, they can join free of charge and collaborate with corporate partners and employees
