People's Republic Process


What is crowdfunding?

Peoples Republic is a crowdfunding and community innovation platform. Crowdfunding is sponsorship by a crowd of many donors, each making an individual, small donation in return for a small reward, like a t-shirt or flowerbed named after you. People’s Republic provides a platform to showcase projects to a potentially huge audience, giving sponsors an easy way to donate and creating better on and off line communities.

How do I create a project?

Simply login and enter a few key details: a description of what you want to do, a funding target and completion date, and some rewards for pledges. Images and videos can also bring your project to life! We offer advice, tips, and feedback all along the way.

Can I raise more than my funding target?

Yes! There is no ceiling to how much you can raise and it is common for projects to raise more than their minimum and sometimes more than their funding target!

Are there any fees?

If you put a project on our general site, then we will take 5% commission to cover operational costs, in addition to the small fees charged by your payment processor, ie. PayPal or Stripe. If you put your project on your local People’s Republic site, then there may be as little as no commission charged.

How do I find my local People's Republic? Does everyone have one?

We are aiming to have a People’s Republic for every community. But if yours isn’t on the site, we haven’t quite reached it yet. Email hello@peoplesrepublic.co and tell us that you want it.

All or nothing funding?

Every project must achieve its minimum needed by its completion date or no funds change hands. Why? Part of the appeal of crowdfunding is that sponsors get to engage with projects and see where their money is going. This keeps everyone happy!
