What is GoPurpose?

GoPurpose is a social awareness network and a funding platform to raise money for social enterprise startups, small businesses or project ideas whose purpose is making a positive impact on this world. We aim to create and promote events and rewards in life that will bring you meaningful and memorable experiences for your life journey.

How does it work?

GoPurpose allows anyone, from organizations to individuals, with a positive meaningful idea to create a fundraiser ("Project") and/or a post to raise awareness ("News Post") about Projects and other related important issues. The creators of the Projects ("Project Creators") will be able to have complete control over their Projects by utilizing GoPurpose to update, manage, and promote their Project. Each Project will have a deadline, funding goals, and mostly likely, Rewards ("Rewards"). Other users of GoPurpose ("Funders") can contribute to any of these Projects to receive fabulous Rewards and also earn points towards redeeming other Rewards!

What kind of Projects do we support?

We focus mainly on socially and environmentally responsible Projects. This is a very broad and encompassing spectrum that encourages people to think creatively. From creating fun games that educate children to hosting a theatre performance that highlights women's issues; the possibilities are endless.


Transparency

We encourage the Project Creators to make Projects as transparent as possible for contributors. Our Rewards Center encourages Project Creators offer rewards such as providing the opportunity for donors who contribute large sums to visit the project site personally. Thus, every donor has the chance to see where his/her money goes and how the project is progressing.

Measurement

We require every Project launched on GoPurpose platform to update their progress periodically. For instance, with our successfully funded program, Library and Youth Learning Center, contributors can easily and clearly track Project Creator TRK's progress from the construction of the Youth Center in December 2014 to the official start of Youth Center in February 2015 through our website. We will make sure all contributions go to the right place and are used the right way. It's our obligation and pleasure to show how contributions are making a big difference in people lives and changing the world we are living in, making it a better place.

Due Diligence

Our GoPurpose crowdfunding model is based on extensive due diligence. We do not accept or launch any project on our platform without careful, responsible study and research. We make sure we know all Project Creators and send our team to visit project sites. GoPurpose is committed to doing good in an accountable way.

Sustainability

We want to create social value and positive change first, then sustainability. Our mission is to make sure every project on GoPurpose platform is able to be self-sustainable: we believe that teaching people how to fish is more effective than providing food directly. We make positive impacts in a sustainable way.

We Care

Our founder cares, and so does our team, generously funding projects with their own money. We are committed to due diligence and we understand the use of money. We all support our approved projects on the platform because we know we are there to make a difference in people?�s lives and we want to change the world for the better.


Discovering a Purpose in Life

Get inspired by discovering great Projects! Contributing to any of our Projects will make a positive, future-minded difference in the world.

Raising Community-Saving Awareness

Blog, promote, and raise funds for the issues that matter the most. Beneficial changes start with ideas and making people aware of those ideas. Discover issues, see the problems and take part in the discussions that will bring about greater awareness and, eventually, solutions.

Creating a Project and Raising Funds

Using our free, flexible and easy-to-use tools to create, manage, and promote your Projects, you can achieve your goals and elevate awareness of your social impacts. You can use your imagination to present your Project in an interesting way and incentivize potential Funders with Rewards. Brainstorm and have fun with this! You absolutely own 100% of your Project and we only take a small fee of the funds you raise to sustain our service. See Pricing.

Events That Make an Impact

We also promote and encourage people to attend community-driven events with a positive impact. If you have an event that you would like to promote on GoPurpose, please contact us at support@gopurpose.com.


Who is Responsible for Completing the Project?

It is ultimately the Project Creators' responsibility to fulfill and complete their Projects as promised. GoPurpose cannot guarantee every Project will be completed as unexpected events can always arise. Funders must be cautious in their contributions and personally decide the validity of the claims presented. Of course, we at GoPurpose are committed to trust and safety. We try to ensure that all Project Creators are verified and that their claims are achievable to the best of our abilities.

Funders Minimizing Risks
To minimize risks, Funders should look at several key factors in determining the validity of the Project:
  • Do the Project Creators possess social media links or other links of identity verification?
  • Do the Project Creators show their faces in the Project video?
  • Do the Project Creators provide sufficient explanation and transparency in describing how they will succeed?
  • Do they frequently post updates or engage in the comments section?
  • Do the Project Creators have a previous successful Project?

Funders can always communicate with the Project Creators directly by clicking on the "Contact" button to ask any questions that they feel have not been addressed.

Project Creators' Responsibilities

It is ultimately the legal obligation of the Project Creators to follow the GoPurpose Terms of Use and fulfill the promises stated in their Project. If the Project Creators are experiencing difficulties in development of their Project, they are obliged to honestly communicate this to their Funders. If the Project Creators are unable to complete the Project as stated, they will be required to address the issue with the Funders and come to a solution. This could include a refund or another form of understanding. GoPurpose cannot refund any money from the Projects.


Funding Types
GoPurpose allows two funding types for Project Creators: Get It As It Comes and All or Nothing.
Get It As It Comes:
  • Project Creators keep all funds (less the GoPurpose Fee) raised.
  • Project Creators are required to fulfill their Rewards regardless if they reach their funding goal or not.
All or Nothing:
  • Project Creators only receive their funds if they reach their funding goal and after the funding duration has expired.
  • Project Creators do not have to fulfill Rewards if they do not reach their funding goal.
