I am seeking to raise $6,000 for the charity Plant With Purpose  using a crowdfunding approach. 

I (Karl Dakin) am the owner of Dakin Capital Services LLC, a consulting company on raising money, and a principal in Colorado Community Capital PBC, a social enterprise dedicated to improving Colorado’s capital ecosystem.  I am leading efforts within Colorado to establish crowdfunding as a new approach for matching local money with local organizations.

Plant With Purpose, https://www.plantwithpurpose.org/, is a charity that sends teams into developing countries that have been negatively impacted by cutting down their forests.  The teams implement plans to replant the forests and help communities self-fund microloan programs for local economic development.  Download a one page overview of Plant With Purpose:  https://app.box.com/s/6lx8fsehaqc78ptocrqaypfoqy9c0rpa

I saw this opportunity to help Plant With Purpose by using what I know about crowdfunding.  Plant with Purpose is helping people build their own capital within the framework of repairing the forests that are needed for local jobs,.  They are demonstrating true ‘sustainability’, both environmental and economic, to address poverty. 

 The campaign to benefit Plant With Purpose employs charity crowdfunding where people may make a donation.  

 In preparation for the campaign, I worked with Xuan (Emma) Liu, a student at Case Western Reserve University in the Weatherhead School of Management to create a crowdfunding workbook and plan for a donor centric campaign. Through this process, my ‘crowd’ of personal and professional relationships was analyzed and a series of tailored communications developed for direct contact and delivery via social media.

 Donors of $25 or more to this campaign for Plant With Purpose will receive a free digital copy of a workbook to develop a charity crowdfunding campaign and a copy of the plan used in this campaign.

In addition, a license will be granted to Plant With Purpose to incorporate the materials within their development programs. The campaign will also serve as a case study for educational programs on crowdfunding to be presented by Colorado Community Capital PBC.

Please join me in supporting Plant With Purpose!
