EVANSTON, Ill. (PRWEB) October 02, 2020
GreenFundr is a new kind of crowdfunding platform dedicated solely to amplifying sustainably-driven projects and green innovations. With a climate crisis this dire, there is no reason why green projects should have to compete against unsustainable ventures in order to gain meaningful publicity and online traction. While mainstream crowdfunding platforms merely mention sustainability, GreenFundr is 100% committed to providing the next generation of eco-entrepreneurs with access to non-dilutive project funding.
GreenFundr’s purpose is short and sweet. We want to fight climate change, end environmental degradation, and build a sustainable world.
GreenFundr provides a more nuanced approach to environmental crowdfunding. The platform has multiple campaign categories including Clean Energy, Smart Agriculture, Sustainable Fashion, Technology, Art and Film, and Social Impact. Each campaign is carefully vetted to ensure its commitment to sustainability. GreenFundr works closely with its campaigns to maintain high quality, informative campaign pages and set realistic funding goals.
GreenFundr is revolutionizing the crowdfunding space by enforcing an altruism-based rewards system. This means that GreenFundr rewards those who donate to campaigns with positive impact rewards, such as planting trees and other carbon offsetting measures. Research shows that people value personal recognition of doing a good deed more than they value receiving a materialistic reward for the same act. Those that gain personal recognition for their good deed are even more likely to donate again. Additionally, materialistic rewards such as personalized apparel, which are common campaign reward offerings on mainstream crowdfunding sites, contribute to environmental degradation and are generally unsustainable purchases. GreenFundr’s rewards system leaves donors with a feeling of doing good, and allows donors to positively contribute to the earth in more ways than one.
GreenFundr Founder and CEO, Samuel Wenger, Co-Founder and COO, Louis Susser, and Co-Founder and CSO, Chelsea Hummer, have a clear vision in sight. “We want to create a world where green projects don’t have to struggle to find the funding they need. The environmental crisis grows more urgent each day, and we want to provide sustainable companies and non-profit organizations access to the funding they need to advance their green projects. We need the help of supporters who want to see positive changes in our environment and are inspired to take things into their own hands,” Samuel Wenger said in a recent interview. Overall, the team believes that sustainability is the key to the future, and is excited to help promote the next generation of green innovations as the need for environmental action grows stronger.
