Non-Profit Project Guidelines

  • Your project has a definable completion.

Community Funded does not allow projects to ask for ongoing funding. Your project must have a definable completion that you and your funders can both recognize as a successful completion of your project.

  • Your project is NOT all about you.

Community Funded is not a place for individuals or organizations to solicit others for personal gain.  Your project needs to have a larger purpose then the lining of your own pockets.

  • I agree to fulfill all Giftbacks offered by my project.

Your word is your bond, and those that fund your project will expect that you fulfill on your entire agreement with them. Complete fulfillment of all Giftbacks is a requirement of all Community Funded Projects.

  • I am 18-years of age or older.

In order to use the services of the site you must be at least 18-years old.  Those under the age of 18 must have a legal guardian submit on their behalf.

  • I am legally allowed to enter into a contract for the organization submitting this project.

To submit a project on behalf of an organization you need to be legally allowed to act on behalf of the organization. If you are not this person your project application will be denied.

  • The non-profit creating this project is incorporated in the United States.

You must be incorporated in a U.S. state as a non-profit in order to use Community Funded as a non-profit.

  • The non-profit has received 501-c-3 status from the IRS.
