Hi, my name is Nathan Gustafson. I am a social entreprenuer and have a project that I want to share with you.
The other day I was playing around with some software ideas, it's what I do for fun. That's normal right?
I was thinking about the challenges of donating money and the reasons why each of us contribute to causes that are meaningful to us. What could encourage more people to get out and direct their money in meaningful ways? How could I personally make my donations go farther. Then it hit me.
If I were to require my donations to be matched before they could be used, I could help encourage others to make the leap and donate as well.
Of course enforcing matched donations is a challenge in and of itself. It is why this type of contribution requirement is typically only seen from the wealthy.
That is where GiveMore.co comes in. Those interested in raising money will be able to start a matching funds campaign. Donors then have the option to require that their funds be matched before they are handed over. Becuase that agreement is handled systematically by a trusted third party, even small donations can now be used to help motivate others.
This idea has the potential to really help a lot of folks. Imagine if every dollar you donate gets matched and if that causes more people to step up and contribute to what matters. What a difference that could make.
If you have a cause you want to suggest, use the form on the home page and please consider donating to this campaign as well. Your contribution will help us reach and help more people.
So make a difference and donate today!
