Crowdfunding Event in HK

Crowdfunding Event in HK

HK+Acumen is partnering with Unltd HK to help grow some homegrown charities and social enterprises!

We know that starting something up requires a huge amount of time, courage and commitment and one thing that is very important at the start is seed money and support!

We are planning a Filanthropy* crowdfunding event (FUN with Philanthropy, get it?!) !  Filanthropy* is a crowdfunding event where supporters come and through a night of inspiration and entertainment, raise money for the featured start-ups.

The concept is simple – show up on the night. Pitch your project. People will crowdfund (LIVE!!) for the project(s) that they like with money out of their pocket! We’ll also have some surprises in store on the night to get people inspired to give more to their chosen charity!  We are now accepting applications for our Filantrophy* event in September. The application form is below, it’s quick, simple and short – designed to be accessible to most organisations.

The only requirements that we have is:

• To be an organisation with less than $200,000 HKD turnover.

• Have already something operating – so not idea stage.

• Unlike other funds – we don’t require your work to be in Hong Kong. It can be international, but you will need a Hong Kong bank account for the money to go into.

• Your project cannot promote a specific religion, ideology or political group, and weregret to inform you we do not fund campaigns or the costs of scholarships, or the costs of individuals. It must be an organisation.

That’s it!

Just follow the instructions and email us the application to us at hk@plusacumen.org when completed.

Deadline: 29 June 2014 – Midnight. Applications accepted after this time will not be considered. We will let you know if you have been chosen and reserve the right not to give feedback to applications that were not successful. Sorry, we’re a small volunteer team, thus we can only do so much!
