ABOUT US ConnectAID

A humanitarian social network &
solidarity-based crowdfunding platform

Today, we live in a world crippled by inequalities. Poverty, hunger, climate change and access to health and education, among other challenges have become global concerns affecting us all.

ConnectAID is a combined crowdfunding platform and humanitarian social network – known as the International Solidarity Network. Through ConnectAID, nonprofits and individuals contribute directly to sustainable development efforts.

The International Solidarity Network is on a mission. We want to be a part of the change and to encourage solidarity differently. 

Our goal is to connect you to international aid, for greater social impact.

We offer a new approach of international solidarity: the belief that together we can tackle sustainable development, the most urgent challenge facing humanity.

 

Towards a new approach to philanthropy

An advanced technology serving common good

Nonprofits now have access to a new communication tool to inform their audience in real time about what is really happening on the ground.

The connection between people and concrete humanitarian action

 
Donations collected go to nonprofits directly

Nonprofits who join forces with ConnectAID will reach a global audience. To help with the platform's expenses, partner organizations agree to cover transaction fees and to share a small percentage of the donations received. ConnectAID also offers optional communication services to help nonprofits coordinate their communication from the field and tell their story in a clear and compelling way.

A safe and secure platform

The fund transfers between donors and nonprofit organizations are completely secure and reliable. Nonprofits collect their donations directly from our payment institution, in compliance with European laws which protect against money laundering and the potential financing of terrorism.

We help nonprofits save time and money

Whether the aim of nonprofits who join ConnectAID is to raise more funds or minimize their need for website investment, the platform's priority and principal beneficiaries remain the local communities directly impacted by humanitarian crises and development issues.

An inclusive approach

Any nonprofit whose on-going project(s) contribute to at least one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, and that fulfil all legal requirements, can request a partnership. All nonprofit partners must be able to provide tax deduction forms to their donors. ConnectAID also offers optional communication services, helping nonprofits to focus completely on their activities on the ground.
