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.
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.
Your window to the humanitarian world
ConnectAID allows you to create your personal profile and invite your friends to join. Your newsfeed informs you of current humanitarian and environmental issues, while keeping you up to date with on-going projects.
A connected solidarity
We help you make safe and easy donations to support on-going development projects. All donations are transparent, and allow you to witness the real impact of your generosity online.
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.
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.
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.
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.
ConnectAID, which is now in its Alpha phase, is growing completely organically by a word of mouth. This only inspires us to keep going, knowing we are actively contributing to changes within the global community.
Thank you to everyone who has made the success of the International Solidarity Network possible. In addition to our current team of specialists in areas of communication, computer programming, humanitarian and development aid, we also would like to thank all those who believed in us and who are using ConnectAID to make a difference. Thank you for spreading the word of the Solidarity Network on a global scale.
