Yes. As long as the end date is not reached, funders can continue to support the project by donating thus, the original goal can be exceeded. It is a bonus for the project holder who will be able to use it to go farther in the project’s realisation.
Just go on the project’s page, category “News”. You will also receive e-mails from the project holder during the key stages of the project.
The platform promotes projects about health development, education, the promotion of women, rural development etc.
Those projects aim to promote the emancipation of the most vulnerable people in concrete and appropriate ways by bringing them the recourses and support they need and that, regardless of their situation, beliefs or origins.
This open-mindedness is rooted in a long philosophical tradition made of sharing, openness to others, audacity and respect in order help others find the dignity they lost.
You can support a project by sharing it on social media, on your blogs, your websites...Or even with a simple e-mail!
Crowdfunding, also called participatory financing, is a financing technique that allows project holders to find support amongst family, friends and acquaintances as well as people interested in the project. They present their project on a dedicated website that gives it visibility for a set amount of time and allows to collect funding from a large number of people without any middle man. If they want to, funders can receive a reward (acknowledgments, invitation...)
The campaign has a set duration period, at the end of which the needed amount of funds must me reached, if it is not, the project won't be financed. Therefore, it is a challenge for all, including funders who become ambassadors of the projects on social media to create a " viral effect".More than a mean of financing , crowdfunding is a collective adventure, bringing people together around a humanitarian project.
The Rosalie Projects platform is the first Christian crowdfunding website exclusively dedicated to projects developed to help the most vulnerable people. Through this innovating tool put in place by the Daughters of Charity, one can become a key contributor to solidarity, as close as one can be to the site and the people, and that in 94 countries.
The platform is linked to a Donation fund named 'Rosalie Rendu" after the Sister who is to all, an immense source of inspiration when talking about civic engagement and network building .Following in the footsteps of this emblematic figure , the platform was created to build a network of hope for those who are more vulnerable and that, following the values of Sister Rosalie Rendu : solidarity, dignity and open-mindedness.
All the projects on the platform are put in place by The Daughters of Charity as they are often by the side of the most defenceless where poverty is most present. Thanks to their proximity with people and their reality, the Daughters of Charity are able to offer projects that are realistic and answer the people’s needs, in collaboration with others.
Often better known as "Sisters of Saint-Vincent-de-Paul" or by their headdress (“cornettes”), the Daughters of Charity are members of a religious congregation created by Saint-Vincent-de-Paul in 1633.Their mission is to support people who face hardship all over the world. Their social impact is significant and their motivation limitless when it comes to bringing free and creative answers to the suffering and injustice they come across.

Crowdfunding platforms apply the "all or nothing" principle in different ways, but in all cases, funding is only given to the project holder if they reach a certain amount.
On Rosalie Projects, this amount is divided by levels (5 max.), each correspond to actual spending for the project. The "all or nothing" rule only apply in the first stage of the project. During the campaign, the amount is either reached and given to the project holder (and debited at the end of the campaign) or it is given back to the funders.
When the debit card transaction is made, the funds are kept on the electronic currency account of the funder. This account is created automatically when a first donation is made. The amount given stays on the funder's account in the form of electronic currency and that, even if the amount appears to be withdrawn from the funder's bank account and that, until the end of the campaign.
Each project is presented with a goal and a duration time. The project can contain between 1 and 5 different financing stages. As soon as a step is approved, the project is considered to be financed and all donations will be debited at the end of the collecting period.
If you made a donation at the beginning of a project that end up not being completed, you can either credit it on your bank account or leave it on your account to contribute to another project.
