Freer Family Tree Foundation is taking philanthropy to a new, unprecedented level by introducing the one thing that has been lacking in a modern day and age, something that's fueled and driven by social media: crowdsourcing.
The foundation utilizes a crowdfunding model to present a wide variety of philanthropy projects to donors. Each project has a specific funding goal to meet, with options for ongoing contributions for interested donors. Donors are able to browse a portfolio of projects to learn more about the cause, the beneficiaries and the progress. Once they've decided on a project(s) that interests them, they can pledge a certain amount of funds as either a one-time donation or as an ongoing monthly contribution.
Founded in 2010, the industry website, Crowdsourcing.org, is a neutral organization dedicated solely
to crowdsourcing and crowdfunding. As one of the most influential and credible authorities in the crowdsourcing space,
Crowdsourcing.org is recognized worldwide for its intellectual capital, crowdsourcing and crowdfunding
practice expertise and unbiased thought leadership.
