Non-profit organizations are able to easily showcase their projects on the Crowdfunding Alberta platform and share them with their networks and communities. Albertans seeking to support causes that are meaningful for them can search the platform, support and share campaigns and contribute to a strong and connected non-profit sector.
Through the Crowdfunding Alberta platform, organizations create their campaigns and invite supporters to share on social media and donate. The organization receives all of the donations raised, less third party payment processing fees and optional platform fees, whether they reach their funding goal or not.
Non-profits establish how often the campaign donations are deposited to best align with bookkeeping and reporting needs. If an organization is approved for match funding from us, it will be deposited via electronic funds transfer.
The Government of Alberta may provide match funding for one campaign per organization per fiscal year. The Government’s next fiscal year begins on April 1. All campaigns submitted in the new fiscal will once again be considered for match funding of up to $15,000.Read more in the attached document.
