Have you heard about Faithify.org?
FAITHIFY is crowdfunding for Unitarian Universalists. If you have heard of Kickstarter, GoFundMe or other crowdfunding sites, FAITHIFY is like that with a twist. FAITHIFY is a crowdfunding platform for Unitarian Universalist ministry projects. Projects include everything from youth work to justice, service, buildings, staff positions, and emerging ministries. FAITHIFY is full of projects that are “faithified” through the direct support of others.
For those of you who are looking for ways to give money to projects that will further Unitarian Universalism in some way – here is a place to look. You check the site, read about the projects and donate to those you think are worthy. If the project receives enough donations to reach its target then your credit card is charged. If they don’t then you receive a notice telling you that it won’t. The crowd (that would be us) decides what gets funded and what doesn’t.
In addition to providing funds, individuals can also support projects by sharing them on social media, which increases the number of people who see the projects and will potentially donate. So it’s more than just providing money. You also need to engage.
Need more information? There is a webinar called FAITHIFY 101 – A Webinar for the Rest of Us – TONIGHT – September 14th at 7 pm (they usually record them if you miss it). Details on the Facebook Event Page.
