Large pharmaceutical company Johnson & Johnson has been supporting a global public health crowdfunding website for the past two years.
The CaringCrowd platform raises money from the public that is matched by J&J up to $250 per person per project with a total project max of $150,000. J&J has contributed a reported $118,000 to date.
The platform does not charge a fee to organizations who raise money there and they use Stripe to keep processing costs lower.
It won a People’s Choice award at the SXSW Interactive Innovation Awards in Austin last year.
