Funding4Learning is a "human capital oriented"crowd funding platform for educational projects. Funding4Learning provides its users with fundraising tools for study, volunteering, as well as a diverse array of education related initiatives.
Funding4Learning, as other "crowdfunding dubbed" platforms, allows users to create a fundraising page for their funding initiative, offer "rewards" in accordance with different levels of contributions, and start a social media-based publicity and word of mouth effort.
Unlike similar sites such as Kickstarter or Indiegogo, Funding4Learning is a specializedcrowdfunding site that dedicates entirely to education related projects.
Funding4Learning uses PayPal as their main provider for all the fundraising payment's processing and transaction services.
Funding4Learning works with an "all or nothing" approach, which means that the collected funds are disbursed only if the fundraising campaign is successful. However, a contributor is allowed to make a "direct contribution", which is guaranteed to be paid whether or not the campaign is successful. Funding4Learning charges 5% of funds disbursed from a successful campaign, and 5% of all direct contributions.
