Do you see a problem which you would be happy to solve?

You even know how and you have probably already started realizing your project, but:

  1. You do not have enough time left after work.
  2. Quitting a job or cutting hours is not a solution in terms of income.

We know this problem only too well, and with PATRON4change we will help you to eliminate this obstacle so that nothing is standing on your way to social impact.

That is why we step in relatively early and exactly at the stage of the first big challenge: the decision to really choose the way into the direction of solutions implementation. This is where we face a problem that concerns all of us: costs of living. It is not easy to cover those by means of social engagement. The more you invest into social impact, the less time you have left for paid work and vice versa – that’s the dilemma.

That is why we are aiming at making social impact affordable and the easiest solution is small amounts of money from many people, the way it successfully works with Crowdfunding all over the world.

It is that easy:

Present yourself and your mission, inspire other to follow you and find people who will support you (patrons) if you want. They will transfer you some money on a monthly basis which will make it possible for you to focus on realizing your mission which might later turn into certain projects which could be additionally funded by Project crowdfunding platforms.

  • If this is what you want then register as a Changemaker
  • Create a profile with a picture, tell a little bit about yourself and
  • Present your mission. These are NOT single projects. A mission is the sum of all projects and therefore a kind of a rooftop above the projects.

In your mission you have to answer the following questions:

  1. WHO are you? Simply write a couple of sentences about yourself and tell us what is important for you and why.
  2. WHAT: Which problem would you like to solve? Tell us what your motivation is and what exactly you would like to change in the world.
  3. HOW would you like to solve it? Provide a clear and simple description of your solutions, i.e. what exactly are you already working on.
  4. What could help you besides money to implement your mission?
  5. How much money do you need a month additionally, so that you could really focus on your mission?

In order to personalize your mission even more, we would finally recommend you to provide a video where you explain points one to four in details. The video should not be longer than 5 minutes. Upload the video on a video platform, such as Youtube or D.Tube, copy the whole URL-link to your video from the browser and paste it in a respective field of your profile.

We will check your finalized mission and put it online. You will be informed by mail including a direct link to your mission that you can share with others.

Detailed instructions on creating a profile and respective mission is available here.
