HelpWithFunds Startup/Launch

Raised $0 of $700 | Donate Now



After the founder and creator of HelpWithFunds had to do a fundraiser due to an injury, he felt that the "other" sites seemed to prey on those already in need with fees upwards of 20% in some cases.

The idea behind HelpWithFunds is to simply offer a platform and the tools to connect directly to your PayPal account while offering a crowdfunding platform that doesn’t rob you blind.

HelpwithFunds wont take any fees from campaigns hosted at the site, instead we will have our own monthly HelpWithFunds campaign to cover the costs of the server, bandwidth and person-hours involved in operating the service. We feel this is the most transparent way to operate

How will this site be different from other crowdfunding sites?

• We don’t charge fees.
• We don’t require offering goods, services or equity in anything you are trying to raise funds for.
• You can raise funds for anything.
• You can have monthly recurring fundraisers for ongoing community funded projects.
• Get funds as they come in. Since we don’t hold your funds until a goal or milestone is reached, you get your funds as they come in.
• Promotional Tools! Promote and share your campaign across all of the social networks!

The “other” crowdfunding sites charge a significant amount in fees, take a look at some of the popular sites what they charge opposed to how we intend to operate.

What are we raising funds for?

We need to continue to develop the site, right now there is hardly any functionality in the back end, which is why it is invite only. We also need to reclaim our domain name. We need to fork out $100 for the iphone app, we need to develop the Android app. We need to pay for the business licenses involved (which all seem to run around $100 each) and finally, as the creator of the site, I can’t allocate time when paid projects are taking priority. I keep thinking I will get the time, but so far it’s been over a year of development with only an hour or less a month going into it.
