The Goteo Foundation team has been busy planting the seeds of change this spring, to improve how we operate and how the platform works. We've uncovered new ways to make each donation work harder and go further, we've created an open data API that enables a whole range of possible visualizations around crowdfunding, and...we've even lowered our commission fee down to 4% for successful campaigns.
Yes, you read that right - since the start of "GoteoSpring" on April 21st, all campaign proposals we receive and publish will be charged only 4% after financed. This change places us at the low end of commission rates among platforms at the national and international level.
After three years growing a community of communities around open and civic crowdfunding, we saw that this change was possible. We are here to be a common tool that adapts and improves as people use it.
So, if you have a crowdfunding campaign in mind, or know someone who is thinking about one, we are more ready and eager than ever to host your project :)
