As crowdfunding is basically available for everyone, we do, however, have guidelines to better determine what’s appropriate, or not, in our website.
For Rewards-based crowdfunding
A project has a clear and definite goaland has an original and achievable output. Therefore funding an organization, entity, or a business as a whole is not considered a project.
The Spark Project will accept project submissions that meet all of the below guidelines:
- The project creator, or at least one member of the group, is Filipino;
- Projects should already have a concrete output or a “proof-of-concept”;
- Projects should exude creative, innovative, and passion-driven qualities. One example could be a product/service which addresses a social problem by using new or revolutionized tools;
- The project must have a maximum limit of Php300,000.00 for their funding goal; AND
- The project output should fall under at least 1 the following categories:
- art, music, and video
- fashion and product design
- travel and culture
- food and beverage
- science and tech
- community projects
For Donations-based crowdfunding
We are looking for campaigns related to personal causes
We have the right to take down campaigns that are offensive.
The Spark Project has the right to determine and take down campaigns that are dishonest or fraudulent.
For Investments-based crowdfunding
The Spark Project is not appropriate for:
- Projects that contain offensive materials. The Spark Project holds the right to determine which materials are offensive;
- The project should not break any Philippine law; AND
- Projects that have parallel, simultaneous campaigns in any other crowdfunding site.
