How?

How do I set up a project on Projects for Good?

If you have your project concept, sign right up and click the Start a Project button. You can easily enter pictures, your project story, fundraising goal, and job descriptions. One of our team members will review the project and let you know when it is published or if you need to make suggestions. But if this is your first time we suggest these steps to get started.

  1. Visualize a successful outcome. How will you feel when your project is complete? How will it make others feel? What kind of impact will it make? 
  2. Now that you’re feeling good, jot down the who, what, when, and where of your project. You’ll use this to write your project headline, short description, and long description.
  3. Pick the 2-3 images you’ll use. You’ll want one main image and 1-2 other images for the body of the story.
  4. Sign in and choose “My Projects” from the drop down menu under your profile picture.

Start filling out your project! And don’t be shy about contacting us for help.

Why?

Why should I use Projects for Good?

Projects for Good is specifically designed to support projects that help the greater good. There are sites that support product concepts or immediate personal needs, and they're great. But that's not what we're here for. We're here to help you help other people (or animals or nature.) As a project owner you need tools both logistical and empowering in nature. You'll be able to create a professional fundraising page, securely transfer funds, and create job listings to find paid professionals or volunteers. But support also comes in another form - from our community of like-minded people who will help and will cheer you on.

Success Stories

Andrew Malais

$1365 raised for The Joshua Tree Trash Map Project

We love clean up projects since they make a huge impact on local parks, beaches, or deserts. Andrew saw how illegal dump sites were affecting Joshua Tree and knew he needed to do something. He had created a map of the dump sites, but needed funds for a truck, supplies, and paid labor. With his fundraiser a success, Andrew was able to make Joshua Tree a better place. Check out his project to see how you could start your own clean up project or browse other successful projects below.
