Two months ago, I wrote a post on Fundchange, a new Canadian Crowdsourcing application.Well, the other day I got an email from Paul Dombowsky with an update, and I’d like to share it with you.
Today Ideavibes, the crowdsourcing and crowdfunding company, announced that $30,000 has been raised by donors and their social networks, only two months after launching Fundchange (www.fundchange.com), one of Canada’s first crowdfunding platforms. TELUS, a partner and sponsor of Fundchange, contributed an additional $20,000 through project funding matches. Ideavibes also announced today Fundchange is widening its mandate to welcome not-for-profit organizations which are not registered charities.
The good news is, that for smaller arts organizations that are not registered charities, there will soon be a crowdsourcing engine just for you. Ideavibes is working on FundtheArts.ca, which will help smaller, arts-focused organizations who do not have charity status to raise funds for their projects.
I’ll keep you up-to-date with that information as well, as it becomes available.
