Crowdfunding Ghana

5 Top Crowdfunding Platforms in Ghana

I for lef Ghana” (in English translation: “I want to leave Ghana”) is a pidgin phrase heard among the Ghana youth. One cannot blame their sentiment. All commodities in the country are now far more expensive than they used to be. Food prices have risen by 30% within one year. Energy costs and inflation have also climbed sharply.

The economic crisis leaves pressures on both the Ghana government and its citizens. Most apply for debts or eat less to live through poverty. Some have invited the generosity of others through crowdfunding to have money in their pockets.

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a great way to fund your next project or business venture. It is an online fundraising method that allows individuals or organizations to raise money for a purpose. It is a relatively new concept that started in the early 2000s. And yet, crowdfunding has been growing rapidly over the past few years.

Read on to discover some of the top crowdfunding platforms in Ghana.

No. 5 FundRaisingAfrica

Started in 2021, FundRaisingAfrica is relatively new in the crowdfunding scene. The site is open exclusively for now to causes or businesses operating within Ghana. Anyone can fundraise for any project. They get all the funds raised with a 5% platform fee deduction. But, project owners are limited to running them within three months.

No. 4 Go Get Funding

Go Get Funding is the go-to platform for community-related campaigns in Ghana. The platform is available for support worldwide. But having your project published in an already-crowded space will be challenging to stand out and be noticed by potential donors. Also, donations are charged with a 6.9% platform fee.

No. 3 Kickstarter

Kickstarter is a donation-based crowdfunding platform with an all-or-nothing clause. If you have not achieved your set goal, all donations are refunded to the supporters. That is why only a few projects are available from Ghana. The platform is best for entrepreneurs. So, if you have a product idea, Kickstarter could be for you.

No. 2 Frankly Green

Frankly Green is an investment-based crowdfunding platform. It is available only to green-related businesses with social impact. Projects undergo strict review and must pass all criteria before getting investors. The company is Germany-based but operates in developing and emerging countries such as Ghana.

No. 1 Airfunding

Airfunding is a donation-based crowdfunding platform. It is available in Ghana and other select countries for any fundraising campaign – from community projects to medical assistance. More than 1,000 Ghanaians have trusted Airfunding to help them with their financial needs.
