If you’re passionate about creating positive social and environmental impact, our handpicked content is all you need to stay informed and inspired. For the fortnight starting 9/11/2020…

1. Easy Recurring Crowdfunding – Now Live!

StartSomeGood, Australia’s leading crowdfunding platform for social enterprises and impact projects, has just launched a major upgrade to their platform, allowing community benefit organisations of all sorts and sizes to easily set up and launch ongoing Recurring Crowdfunding campaigns. Recurring Crowdfunding is ongoing and therefore allows you to build dedicated ongoing supporter communities, whether donors or customers. This makes it easy for community groups to host dedicated giving circles, social enterprises to offer subscription products and creative producers and community organisers to be supported longer-term. Start a fund today!

2. Haystacks Solar Garden 

Grown out of a desire to make renewables accessible for everyone and enabling communities more control over their energy future, the Haystacks Solar Garden is intended to demonstrate that community-owned and small-scale solar farms are viable, replicable and provide multiple economic and community benefits. A solar garden is a similar concept to a community garden, but instead of growing veggies members get to harvest renewable electricity. People who want to install solar on their rooftop but aren’t able to can join a Solar Garden and receive the benefits from collectively owned renewable electricity.
