Crowdfunding developed by NOVO BANCO, a pioneering project in Portugal, answered the need of finding new forms of participation and social contribution, enabling anyone to contribute to a given cause through the Internet and the materialisation of a project collectively, in which Novo Banco accounts for 10 per cent of the total funding.
The economic background gave rise to new forms of participation and social contribution, particularly crowdfunding, i.e. the chance everyone has to contribute to a given cause through the Internet and help the materialisation of a project collectively. In the United States and some European countries, the movement is a success in terms of financing, through social networks, of start-ups, NGOs and creative projects.
NOVO BANCO Crowdfunding platform has already financed 131 projects through 10,681 donations with over 547 thousand Euros aimed at charities and charity fundraising events. Of the 131 projects 100% financed 30 were developed outside Portugal, namely 13 in Mozambique, 8 in Sao Tome and Principe, 8 in Cape Verde and 1 in Guine.
With a view to continuing supporting public charities and NGOs which intend to implement projects that can make a difference in the quality of life of users thereof, NOVO BANCO keeps highlighting its crowdfunding platform in its policy of social responsibility, enabling cost-free contact of these institutions with an infinite community of donors, whose donation allows the fulfilment of social projects.
