Is it really safe for those under 13?

Information Shown on Their Pages

Parents of users under age 13 are given full responsibility to review this information before anything is posted to the internet. Please read the Privacy Policy if you have further questions.

 

Parents Review Fundraisers

Restricted Communication

Although most fundraiser supporters are people from your direct network, there is no way for individuals viewing the page to directly communicate with the child. Only supporters who have given to the fundraiser may leave a comment on the page when they give. The supporter is identified by first and last name and the contents of their message is public.

What is Fixed Funding & Flexible Funding?

Fixed Funding is an all or nothing method whereby campaign creators only receive funds if their campaign reaches the funding goal. This is beneficial to both campaigners and contributors. With Fixed Funding there is a higher degree of transparency because all backers know they will get their money back if the campaign is not fully funded. 

Flexible Funding means that no matter how much money you raise, you get to keep it all at the end of the campaign. Setting realistic funding goals is important when using this funding method.

How much does it cost?

Joining Crowd-Fund-Kids is free, however, there is a standard platform fee levied on any funds raised through our platform, which for Flexible Funding campaigns is 5% of funds raised if you meet your funding goal or 8% if you do not meet your goal.

 

With Fixed Funding campaigns you only pay a 5% fee if your campaign reaches its funding goal. There are also payment processing fees or around 3.5%

Do you recommend connecting with Facebook or Twitter?

Yes, we do! Not only is it a simple way for anyone to log into Crowd-Fund-Kids, but if you're a campaigner, it's a great way to let backers know a little bit more about you and makes it easy to show backers that you're a real person. Connecting your social media accounts allow you to easily share your campaign with others too which in turn means your campaign will be noticed more.

Does Crowd-Fund-Kids ascertain a campaign or owner’s claim?

Crowd-Fund-Kids does not ascertain a campaign’s or project owner’s claims. All claims and responsibilities of each project are its owner’s. People decide a project’s legitimacy or worthiness and decide whether they want to make a contribution or not
