What Are Communities

What are Communities?

Communities start with an existing fundraiser who has experience with the M-Changa platform, this person becomes the Community Coordinator and their role is to invite new and existing funraisers to join the Community.

The Community Page is a public page providing information about the community and its fundraisers.

The Community Pot contains funds to support Community Fundraisers. Donors may choose to donate directly into the community pot rather than specific fundraisers. Donations may be one-time or regular payments e.g. KES 2,000 per month . Donors to the community pot include individuals, institutions and foundations. The greater the reputation of the community, the more likely they are to attract funds.

Changa Glow enables funds from the Community Pot to drive greater fundraiser performance e.g. A person contributes KES 1,000, if they invite 3 more donors to contribute KES 650 their initial donation will be doubled. The amount required for the matching will depend on the initial amount donated (see 2 examples below).

Benefits

  • Match funding: Through Changa glow, any money available in the community pot will be distributed among fundraisers through Changa Glow, this will help fundraisers to expand their networks and raise more funds
  • Visibility: The community page will give community fundraisers exposure to donors interested in that particular community
  • Reporting: All community fundraisers can track the progress of other community fundraisers
  • Communication: Community fundraisers can exchange ideas and advice on the best fundraising practices which have worked for them
  • Bonuses: Occasionally M-Changa or any well wisher may add funds into the community pot, that will be used for Changa Glow Match Funds. For each new fundraiser that raises KES 10,000, M-Changa shall add KES 1,000 into the community pot
