CFB Holiday Edition: CrowdFunding in Support of Amazing Nonprofits

 Happy Holidays from CrowdFunding Beat family, 

Do you want to be more engaged with nonprofits? Are you having a hard time finding great organizations to support? Meet Dollar a Day.

Launched by Perry Chen, the cofounder and CEO of Kickstarter, Dollar a Day is a subscription-based donation service meant to bring awareness and support to a host of nonprofits. The concept is simple yet powerful: everyone who joins commits to donating $1 a day to a featured nonprofit organization.

If you’re not sure you’re ready to join the service quite yet, you can subscribe to their newsletter for free. Just like members, each day you’ll receive the one-paragraph introductory description of the featured nonprofit, and from there you can decide whether you want to engage with that organization directly.

“For us, Dollar a Day is an education platform,” says Chen. “It’s a way to get people to discover nonprofits that they might not have heard of. From there they can learn more about the non-profit and interact directly.”

Nonprofits are chosen for their innovative approach to solving issues that don’t traditionally get enough attention. The six categories featured are:

  • Education
  • Health
  • Economic Development
  • Arts & Culture
  • Environment
  • Human Rights

The next 60 nonprofits to be featured are already listed on the Dollar a Day website. The service also gives you the opportunity to suggest nonprofits to be featured. All donations on Dollar a Day are 100% US tax deductible, and Dollar a Day itself is a nonprofit.

Learn more about the organization by visiting their website. And consider joining the 904 (at the time this article was published) others who are already a part of the movement!
