As crowdfunding is basically available for everyone, we do, however, have guidelines to better determine what’s appropriate, or not, in our website.
We are looking for projects. A project has a clear and definite goal; is time-bound, and 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
The Spark Project is not appropriate for:
- Projects that involve “fund my life” or campaigns that are for the project creator’s personal gain;
- Projects that will be used for political or religious agenda;
- 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;
- Projects that will give monetary rewards or stocks as rewards;
- Projects that will campaign for funding of an institution, organization, or business as a whole; AND
- Projects that have parallel, simultaneous campaigns in any other crowdfunding site.
