To start your own NGO can be difficult and to get a loan from a bank can be hard and not always the best option. However, there are many ways and opportunities to get funding. One of them is crowdfunding over an online platform. Depending on your organization there are different platforms that might work better for you.
One example is gofundme which is an international crowdfunding platform. This might be the right choice when you want to start a bigger, international NGO. However, local banks and communities also offer different funding programs to reach the local community.
To sign up at a fundraising platform and get the best out of it, it’s important to fill out all the information and tell your organisation’s story.
The first step towards getting donations is engaging your audience. Try sharing a a video explaining the fundraising goal and introducing them to your organisation.
