Any animal charities out there looking to fund a project? LoveAnimals.org is for you! LoveAnimals.org is the new crowdfunding website (like Kickstarter.com and Kiva.org) for nonprofit animal groups, and they are looking for more projects their network of donors can fund. During the last few months the site has been in beta, they successfully fundraised for orphaned bald eaglets, sea turtles, the pets of military veterans, and a tiger with a toothache.
Microfunding/crowdfunding works, and LoveAnimals.org is open to any animal charity serving any animals in need. All donations go directly to the group itself – LoveAnimals.org takes no percentage of funds raised – which means more money directly benefits the cause. AWESOME.
Unfortunately, animal and wildlife charities have been slow to adopt online philanthropy. There are an estimated 26,000 animal welfare and wildlife conservation nonprofits in the U.S., which combined receive less than two percent of all charitable contributions. LoveAnimals.org hopes to change that.
