Crowdfunding platform supports community projects

Submitted By Sherry Harwin

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."

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.
