FUNDING

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding by definition is, “the practice of funding a project or venture by raising many small amounts of money from a large number of people, typically via the Internet.” Another way to think of crowdfunding is by simply thinking of it as getting funding (funds, resources, etc.) from a group of people.

 

What kinds of crowdfunding are there?

There are different types of online fundraising, but the most popularly used are loans, providing ownership shares in the company, or “rewards based crowdfunding” Fund Her Projects operates on the “rewards based’ model of crowdfunding.

 

How does reward-based crowdfunding work?

In the rewards based model, people give money to support an idea, person, or project they want to see created, then get rewards (from a small card and stickers, to even larger merchandise or just the thought that it’s the giving that counts). The person whose idea is being funded is known as the project creator. They’re the mastermind behind the brand, idea, or thought. These people are normally innovators who explain why they want to see their idea brought to life, how their ideas shape and form society, and how your specific contribution helps.

 

What/Who is Fund Her Projects?

Fund Her Projects (FHP) is an innovative funding platform just for women. FHP is not your typical crowdfunding site as it allows members to promote a well-intentioned cause, and request needed items for their children (unborn within our online community.

 

Why should I use Fund Her Projects?

Most women are not familiar with crowdfunding as it relates to their individual circumstances. Fund Her Projects aims to take the mystery out of crowdfunding and make it simple, clear, and easy. FHP focuses on the everyday woman and encourages her to move forward with her personal and professional goals.

Who can use Fund Her Projects?

FHP welcomes and supports projects in the varied categories of Education, Creative Arts, Professional Training and/Development, Entrepreneurism, Activism, and Personal Projects. Although we encourage almost any type of funding project we ask that our project creators use wisdom when determining what project/campaign they will promote, and refrain from promoting any content that may be considered inappropriate or unlawful. Failure to comply with this rule, will result in the removal of said project/campaign.

 

Does this mean that men can’t donate?

Not at all. Anyone who supports the idea of seeing women succeed and would like to donate is eligible.

 

How much does it cost to use Fund Her Projects?

Launching your project Is FREE!

When a project is successfully funded or reaches at least 80% of its funding goal, Fund Her Project applies a fee* of 5% of the amount raised. A separate credit card processing fee of 2.9% + $0.30 per donation is paid to WePay, our third party payment processor. If the funding goal is not met, no fees are paid.

*Hers magazine subscribers only incur a 4% fee

 

Can funders give anonymously?

Sure. Funders will have the option to donate to your project anonymously.

 

What about taxes and stuff?

We do not provide any specific tax advice. However, we suggest that you consult a tax professional if you are a business, corporation, registered non-profit or charity. A legally registered non-profit or charity may be considered eligible for funders to claim as a tax deduction. Again, we do not provide tax advice and ask that our project creators please contact a knowledgeable tax professional.

 

Who is WePay?

WePay is our third party payment processor. When you create a Fund Her Project, a WePay account is automatically created for you to collect your funds.

 

Do I have to offer rewards to my funders?

No. You have the option not to offer rewards with your project.

 

Is my payment information secure?

Absolutely! We know how valuable your credit/debit card information is, that’s why we offer payment services directly through WePay. The payment processor, WePay, is convenient to use and charges no fees for processing. You simply click and pay, you never even have to leave our website.

 

Is there an ideal amount to fund?

No. We can’t tell you what to do with your money. We can only encourage you to give to the projects that you would like to see come to fruition. Give as much as you feel necessary.

 

If I fund a project, will I be able to get updates from the project creator?

Yes. The purpose of Fund Her Projects is to be able to share innovation, creativity and news as it happens. As an incentive, project creators will definitely keep you in the loop in regards to new campaigns, new rewards and merchandise and how the project you’ve helped fund is coming along!

 

CAUSES

What causes are NOT allowed?

We allow most any cause to be promoted to other FHP members as long as it does not violate standards of decency, general moral basis, or offend religious sensibilities. As such, we reserve the right to remove any member, cause or post that we deem offensive or in poor taste.
