We pass on 100%. Yep, that’s right. 100% of the money donated on Catapult’s project pages goes directly into the hands of organizations carrying out the projects. The exception is if a donor feels inclined to add a donation to Catapult when they finalize their payment info.
So if we’re passing all the money along...how does Catapult keep servers, staff, support and the technology behind the platform going strong?
Ah, we thought you’d never ask.
We were incubated in 2011 by the amazing organization Women Deliver and received seed funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to get Catapult up and running.
Now we’re building a network of people, companies and foundations that believe in Catapult’s mission. They know that by funding our operations, they’re allowing our online donors to continue to connect with and confidently support projects for girls and women around the world. We’re grateful.
Want to join them? Here’s how you can support Catapult:
Donate - Join the individuals, corporations and organizations who believe in our platform and support or operations with a donation. We’re 501(c)(3), too, so these gifts are all tax-deductible.
Become a Catapult member – a tiered membership group comprised of families and individuals who provide our core operating support, and have the opportunity to be part of something bigger.
Sponsor Events and Campaigns - We’ve got some exciting stuff planned... jump in! If you’re interested in event or campaign sponsorship, email our Development team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donate your goods and services – We work hard to keep the overhead down, and we’re basically paperless and green. But like any organization, we need supplies, tech equipment, phones, software, and all the other office-y things. In-kind gifts or services are tax-deductible and really help us out. Email email@example.com if you’d like to contribute.
