The fundamental driver for ChangeFunder is to give communities the opportunity to identify what *they* need to improve their lives, and to be able to share those needs with a global community of benevolent supporters. We facilitate this process using the ChangeFunder platform, where communities post project ideas and needs that individuals can help support.
The ChangeFunder platform is a low-bandwidth Web app that is in its early stages of development. We conducted initial pilot testing of the basic "alpha" version of the platform in Kenya in late August/early September 2019. As a result, we already have more than 50 validated project ideas posted to the platform.
Anyone can sign up on the platform. Join us today!
We are raising funds to support our on-the-ground partners who are working directly with communities to help them co-create their own ideas to improve their lives, and to share them on the ChangeFunder platform. For each country program, we are trying to raise between $100,000 and $150,000. You can see our current focus countries below, or let us know if you have a specific country focus you'd like to support.
We began our first community engagement work in Kenya in August 2019. Help us support our on-the-ground partners/activators partners working directly with communities in Kenya.
We plan to make our first foray into communities in South Africa in December 2019/January 2020. Help contribute to this effort, and to raise funds to support our future partners there.
When disaster strikes, sometimes the most pressing need is to get donations directly into the hands of first responders and local charities. Instead of sending money to global coordinators who provide little visibility into how your generosity is being used, we can help facilitate the direct giving to those who need it urgently. And you get to see how your funds are helping. You can see our current crisis response programs below, or let us know if you have a specific issue you'd like to support.
We are helping to coordinate donations directly to those on the ground helping with the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian.
ChangeFunder.org is a new charitable organization completely dependent on volunteers. Help us raise funds to be able to hire our first executive director and its initial staff.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve our chances of sustainability. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
