Make a $10 donation into $35

Hi William, I'm going to shamelessly throw this in here for your consideration: https://www.gofundme.com/f/suvita (If there was ever an appropriate place to do this on EA forum, this seems as good as any.) Suvita's work is backed by Charity Entrepreneurship and Founders Pledge. And their programs have been recommended by Giving What We Can. Cheers!

Oh, and SoGive looks like a fantastic project by the way! I'm really interested in spreading a culture of effective giving, which it seems you are too. Let me know if you'd like to discuss some time. Cheers.

Hi Sanjay, thanks for sharing your crowdfunding thoughts. I just put my first campaign together for Suvita (all about increasing immunization rates in India). www.gofundme.com/f/suvita. Feel free to share. It was helpful to hear your thoughts and check out your Kickstarter. I appreciate it.

Hauke, I wanted to thank you for your help here. It did make a difference in our decision making process regarding crowdfunding. Suvita's end of year campaign is now up on GoFundMe: www.gofundme.com/f/suvita. Hope you're doing well and Let's Fund's is making progress. Let me know if you'd like to discuss our various projects. I'll be hosting some EA-related speaking events through my work in December, starting with Giving What We Can this coming Thursday. I'll send you links if you're interested. Cheers!

Hi Hauke, other than the contact info issue, can you think of any other shortcomings of Facebook crowdfunding compared to sites that focus more exclusively on crowdfunding (such as HipGive, Causes, etc.? Thanks again

2HaukeHillebrandt1ySome people don't have facebook or don't like to give credit card information. You might consider setting up on both FB and GFM, where you try to get people to FB first, because it doesn't take any fees and then maybe either to PayPal, which also doesn't take fees, and only then perhaps to GFM, just make a website with your own aggregate donation count. You might also want to check out Youtube's new crowdfunding capabilities. Good luck! Suvita seems like a great project.

Thank you for the info, Sanjay!

Thank you Hauke! I'm assuming Let's Fund does its own research and doesn't accept any form of applications from nonprofits, correct? I'm trying to help Suvita (suvita.org) with their promising work in vaccination uptake in India, but I don't think this would be the type of high-risk upstart Let's Fund is focused on. I'm open to ideas. Thank you for your thoughts.

2HaukeHillebrandt1yYes, correct, sorry we do not accept applications and only do independent research to find giving opportunities.

Your pandemics section is eerily close...would be interesting in discussing this with you more.
