Crowdfunding platform could work for local causes

A new social finance platform has been launched to enable people to raise funds not just for registered charities but also individuals in need and local causes or groups.

The focus of Flendr, http://www.flendr.com/, is on helping people borrow, lend and fundraise amongst their family and friends. The report from UK Fundraising gives some information on how costs compare and how it operates.

Other giving platforms are listed on VolResource’s Income Services page.
