What is WO Funding?
WO Funding stands for World's Online Funding. WO Funding is a platform that allows people to raise money for basically anything. From a new business idea, for a film, music, technology, or an event. People post projects that they want to raise money for, share their stories and carry out fundraising campaigns.
Who uses WO Funding?
WO Funding is used by people across the globe. They’re finding it to be a great resource for raising money. As long as you have a Paypal account you can participate.
Why do people contribute to campaigns?
One reason for contributing to campaigns is that people like to help other people. But also people like the perks that come with contributing to the campaign, or they simply just want to be involved with an exciting new project.
How much does WO Funding cost?
There is no cost for joining or creating a fund raising campaign on WO Funding. From the money that is raised for projects, a fee of 5% is levied, provided the project meets its goal. If it does not hit the target, the fee is 8%.
Who do I contact with questions about my contribution?

For questions about perks, shipping address or other information directly related to your contribution you should contact the campaign owner. WO Funding answers all other questions, so please contact us.
I want my campaign on the homepage. How can I arrange that?
Getting featured on the homepage is based on merit alone. Those campaigns that generate the most interest and activity are selected for the homepage. The factors that influence homepage positioning include:
1. The funds raised and how many contributors your campaign has.
2. The detail of information provided about your campaign, pitch and team members
3. The level of activity relating to your campaign e.g. updates, comments, sharing on Facebook, Twitter and others.
4. Pictures and video.
