StartSomeGood is the crowdfunding platform for social good initiatives to raise funds and grow a community of supporters.
Introduction

StartSomeGood.com empowers people from around the world to become social innovators. By connecting social entrepreneurs, nonprofits and changemakers with the financial and intellectual capital they need to transform an idea for improving the world into a reality, together we can turn ideas into action and impact.

There are no shortage of problems in the world, and no shortage of people with ideas to address them, yet often they lack the funds to make things happen. StartSomeGood provides changemakers with a platform to raise start-up funds and build a community of supporters -- all in a fun, engaging and community-driven way. Our site taps into the power of the crowd, allowing changemakers to ask for small amounts of money from supporters from around the world, and gives them the tools to update their supporters, provide unique rewards in exchange for support and run multiple campaigns over time.

We’ve taken the crowdfunding model -- which is growing in popularity world-wide -- and customized it to reflect the unique needs of the social good community

If you are visiting for the first time, we know you will find many worthwhile initiatives and inspiring changemakers here. We hope you will choose to chip in to help make these important ventures start and thrive, to help those who are helping our world. And then we hope you think about what your community needs, and the good you might start yourself. We are here to help you turn your ideas into action and impact.

Creating a more sustainable, equal and just future will take all of us.

How will you StartSomeGood?
