Crowdfunding has become very popular to fund all kinds of initiatives, but it’s not just for business, it also works to raise funds for an event.

Furthermore, creating a crowdfunding campaign to finance an event has its benefits: first, you will not have to use money from your own pocket, nor will you need to resort to a loan; Second, it will help you to know how many people are really interested in attending your event.

In advance, we tell you that there are two types of crowdfunding platforms: those that work with the all or nothing of the global goal and those that are based on the flexible goal. In the first, the designers who do not raise the money from the goal do not get anything in return and the money is returned to the patrons. In the second it does not matter if you do not reach the goal, the money that was collected can be used for your project.

In Solidaridad Latina we work under the flexible goal, this greatly benefits anyone who wants to hold an event and any amount that can be raised can be used to finance their initiative.
