Fundraising has always been embedded in the African culture, and in this digital age, the internet has proven to be handy in reaching donors on a global scale.
In 2015, Aheeb Afeez and three other charity enthusiasts came together to build Donate-ng, an online fundraising and crowdfunding portal where Nigerians with causes and projects can easily access financial support from donors locally and abroad.
Donate-ng’s first fundraising project was for a little girl battling cancer, where they successfully raised about eighty percent of the funds needed for her treatment. It has since then come a long way, finding a way to build trust with donors and validate each claim, and has realized over 1900 projects to date.
The platform’s crowdfunding model is donation-based, focusing mainly on social good, life events, and personal causes ranging from medical bills to community projects, tuition fees, or capital projects by charity organizations.
