The #Connect2Effect Process


What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is sponsorship by a crowd of many donors, each making an individual, small donation in return for a small reward, like a t-shirt or a project poster.

Who are the sponsors?

Your sponsors will be supporters of Connect2Effect, friends and family or sometimes complete strangers! How many people your project reaches is up to you!

Can I raise more than my funding target?

Yes! There is no ceiling to how much you can raise and it is common for projects to raise more than their minimum and sometimes more than their funding target!

What's all-or-nothing funding?

We ask you for two amounts - the minimum you need, and your ultimate target. Funds only change hands if a project has reached its minimum once it hit its end date. This means you only need to carry out your project and deliver rewards if you achieve this minimum target. We recommend setting the minimum at the smallest amount you need to complete your project and successfully deliver rewards. You can still set a bigger project target as well! Most projects receive considerably more than their minimum!

What is a project?

When you publish your idea or event, we call it a project. For your idea to become a project, you must have a clear goal and be able to explain how you will spend the funds you raise.

Are there any fees?

Yes, 7.5% plus payment processing fees with PayPal or Stripe. Of the 7.5%, 2.5% goes to platform provider Hubbub and 5.0% to the Influx Trust. We invoice you after your fundraising is successful.
