New Crowdfunding Site for the Solidarity Economy

COOPFUNDING – A free and cooperative crowdfunding platform that promotes the self financing of cooperative projects.

CoopFunding is a crowdfunding platform for the common good which seeks to promote self management by facilitating visibility and access to collective financing to cooperatively run, commons based and socially oriented projects, using many official, alternative and local currencies.

We do not charge campaign fees, and donors do not pay fees either*! This platform wants to be supported only by donations (not necessarily monetary), to CoopFunding’s own permanent donations campaign (please contribute here).

With this website, you can support many interesting projects, or if you have a cooperative project, you can set up your own campaign with some special key conditions:

  • No fees (except for credit card payments*).
  • You can keep all your donations even if you don’t reach your goal.
  • You can create a second timeframe and/or have a second phase goal, an extended campaign or even a permanent campaign (in some cases) for an ongoing project or activity.
  • Use alternative local or social currencies, cryptocurrencies or pay in cash at a space run by campaigns or with agreements with us (manual gateway).
  • Manage your campaign’s manual donations directly in your own accounts.
  • Choose to either run a ‘donations only’ campaign or instead run a campaign offering specific rewards in gratitude of specific amounts contributed (preferably non-material items, to avoid shipping). This ‘with rewards’ option can be used also to split the incomimg donations into sub destinations, but needs to work with a table of fixed amounts.
