For Common Cause - back a business, change a life

24.10.14

ForCommonCause.org is the first crowdfunding site that lets people work directly with individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds to help them build micro-enterprises and financial independence.

For supporters, they see the difference they make, it’s immediate and personal:

  • connect personally with those who will benefit
  • match your resources with real people and real need
  • help people to help themselves
  • see the impact you make first-hand

It aims to create access to a wider array of resources that entrepreneurs can’t get anywhere else and tackle big challenges like poverty with better results.

Although many of those it works with are London-based, not all are – For Common Cause says it works with inspiring, dedicated entrepreneurs who are on benefits, council housing tenants, aged 18-30 from low-income areas, or who have experienced domestic violence, homelessness or long-term unemployment.

Whether you’re looking for support, or would like to help someone, visit For Common Cause.
