Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 31, 2013
Los Angeles-based startup, Piglt (pronounced "piglet"), launched its first Indiegogo campaign, "Piglt: Everyone Deserves An Affordable Education", to raise funds to fully launch their online platform, build their team, and establish a "home" for all education-related fundraising. Piglt is a fundraising platform offering any education-related cause the tools to easily and effectively raise money. Whether you’re an individual raising money for your tuition or to pay off your student loans or a nonprofit organization raising money to cover the costs of the educational programs you run, Piglt is the place for community-based fundraising.
In fact, Piglt has already helped pay a portion of a young woman’s tuition at New York’s Skidmore College and currently is working with many nonprofit organizations to create campaigns to help pay for programs that assist military veterans, teach teenagers leadership skills, and teach elementary-school students outdoor survival skills.
Piglt hopes to raise $20,000 on Indiegogo; its campaign wraps up on November 29, 2013. Reaching this goal will allow Piglt to change the landscape of unaffordable tuition costs, rising student loan debt, and under-funded (but deserving) nonprofit organizations, alumni associations, and more raise money in a more hopeful, manageable, and community-driven effort. The money generated from Piglt’s Indiegogo campaign will be used to hire additional employees, including a community manager, a business development manager, and additional web developers. Piglt will also use the funds to pay for hosting and server costs, as well as marketing and public relations.
