How to create a crowdfunding campaign in South Africa

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Crowdfunding is the practice of funding a project online by receiving many small donations from a number of individuals through the use of social media and the press.

Through emotive storytelling, imagery and video content, campaign creators are able to present their cause to the public to reach their specified fundraising target.

In 2020, South Africa’s leading donations-based crowdfunding platform, BackaBuddy, celebrated R200 Million raised for charitable causes across the country.

Crowdfunding for a person

BackaBuddy has thus far welcomed over 16 600 individual fundraising campaigns for medical expenses, tuition fees, sporting tours, community projects and good deeds.
