Chatraise combines JustGiving & Meetup, enabling you to create or join social fundraising experiences that fit the hobbies and activities you love to do or have always wanted to try. Ready to list 100k+ charities & “changing the face of fundraising" (The Telegraph), we’re ready for hard launch.
We believe that the current approach to fundraising undermines the potential of the charity sector and of our dreams in bettering our world; mainly for two reasons:
1. Most of the fundraisers struggle to raise money. This is perfectly understandable considering they ask people to sponsor them without giving them the chance to be part of the fundraising experience.
2. Fundraising is dominated by one-off events or challenges (e.g. marathon). As these events don’t fit everyone's lifestyle, they discourage many people from raising money.
Chatraise aims to empower people to live an impactful lifestyle by making fundraising & giving an easy, social and fun experience, that’s compatible with their daily activities & hobbies. Think Meetup/JustGiving in one app. So, fundraisers create events that donors would love to join anyway.
We soft-launched our MVP in 2018 for testing and we're now ready for a hard launch in both the UK and Switzerland. Our business model is based on donation & ticketing processing fees. Your investment will help enhance our product and introduce referrals to stimulate virality through two channels:
1. Fundraisers inviting their network to their Chatraise event (through social media integration).
2. Partners (charities/corporations) inviting their supporters/employees to join Chatraise in order to fundraise, whilst building a strong sense of community at the same time.
