Yes, until the pre-established end date, contributors can keep supporting a project, and possibly exceed the initial goal of the collection. It is a bonus for the project leader who can thus take her project even farther.
Just go to the project page, under the heading "News". E-mails are also sent at the key stages of the project by the project leader.
The platform promotes development projects in the fields of health, education, women's advancement, rural development, etc. These projects aim at empowering the most vulnerable in a concrete and appropriate way by offering resources and support, whatever their situation, faith or background. This spirit of openness is part of a long philosophical and spiritual tradition of sharing, openness to others, boldness and respect, aiming to restore dignity to those who have lost it.
You can support a project by relaying information about it on your social networks, your website, blog ... or even by email.
Crowdfunding, or participatory financing, is a funding method that allows project leaders to find support among friends, family, acquaintances and people who are attracted by the project. They present their project on a site dedicated to this purpose, which gives it visibility for a set time period, and makes possible the collection of funds from a large number of individuals without any intermediary. The donors can, if they wish, receive a symbolic reward (thank you message, invitation, etc.)
The fundraising campaign has an announced duration, at the end of which the required amount must be reached; otherwise, the project is not funded. It is therefore a challenge for all, including donors, who are invited to become ambassadors for the project to their networks, in order to create a "viral effect". More than just a means of funding, crowdfunding is therefore a collective adventure, uniting individuals around a humanitarian project.
“The Rosalie Projects” platform is the first Christian crowdfunding site exclusively dedicated to development projects for the most vulnerable. Through this innovative tool launched by the Daughters of Charity, everyone, with a simple act, can become an actor in solidarity, a partner in their action close to people on the ground in 94 countries of the world.
The platform is backed by an Endowment Fund that bears the same name as a Sister, an inspiration for everyone in terms of networking and socially responsible initiatives: Rosalie Rendu. Following in the wake of this emblematic figure of social action, the platform intends to build a network of hope for the most vulnerable people and shares her values: solidarity, dignity and openness.
All the projects presented on the platform are led by Daughters of Charity, often those very close to vulnerable people in all sorts of situations of insecurity. Thanks to their first-hand knowledge of people and their realities, they can propose realistic projects, adapted to their needs, and personally monitor them, in collaboration with others.
The Daughters of Charity, better known as "Sisters of St. Vincent de Paul" or by their cornettes, are members of a religious congregation founded by St. Vincent de Paul in 1633. Their mission throughout the world is to support people in difficulty. Their social impact is considerable, and their boundless motivation helps them imagine unfettered and creative responses to the situations of suffering and injustice they encounter.
If you have an account, you can write a comment on the page reserved for the project. It will be sent to the project leader.
Each crowdfunding platform applies the "all or nothing" rule in its own way, according to which the collected funds are paid to the project leader only if the amount requested is reached.
On "The Rosalie Projects", the amount of the proposed project is divided into several stages (up to 5), corresponding to the actual expenses of the project. The "all or nothing" rule applies only to the first stage: within the time of the campaign, either it is completed and the project leader obtains the amount (in which case the donation is debited at the end of the campaign) or it is not and the money for that stage is returned to the donor.
When a credit card payment transaction is completed, the funds concerned are kept in the donor's e-money account, automatically created at the time of the first donation. The donor, while he may see the amount charged to his bank account, continues to hold the sum in the form of electronic money in his payment account until the end of the campaign. It is only then that the funds are transferred. If the funding stage is not met, you will recover 100% of your contribution, without having to do anything.
Each project is presented with a collection goal and a duration for the campaign. The project can range from 1 to 5 funding stages. An "all or nothing" rule applies for the first stage: if it is not completed during the collection period, donors are not debited for their donation and the project is not funded. Once the first stage is completed, the project is considered funded; all donations are debited at the end of the collection.
If your donation is made during the first stage but it is not met in the end, you have the choice either to re-credit the funds to your personal bank account or to leave them in your payment account to contribute to another project.
