The world's biggest online giving circle is about to get bigger.
We're trying to raise our first $100,000 funding round by April 1, 2019. And it's all or nothing. If we meet our goal, you pay what you've pledged; if we fall short, you don't pay a penny.
If millions of us combine our money and our time, what kind of impact could we make?
We could purchase 10,000,000 acres in the Amazon forest for conservation.
We could provide safe drinking water to every human on the planet.
We could buy out one of the world's most destructive corporations.
Thousands strong and growing fast, Shared Nation is part virtual country, part people's foundation.
Members combine resources every month to solve global problems.
$2 per month, cancel anytime (next round starts May 1, 2019)
What We've Accomplished
HOW IT WORKS
People from all around the world pool their money to create a big pot of funds. You join by contributing as little as $2 per round.
Review and debate interesting proposals from the groups seeking our help in solving global problems. Should we invest in energy infrastructure? Buy land to put into protection? Fund a new start-up?
Contribute to the group's decision by making a few quick votes between candidate causes each week. See who wins (and rest assured that all organizations will get some of our funding just for taking part).
Follow along as we track the progress of the winner, and tell us the topic you'd like us to tackle next!
Breakthrough Voting Technology
Shared Nation's breakthrough voting platform allows huge numbers of people to efficiently choose between a large number of options for action and investment, overcoming a longstanding barrier in civic engagement.
The quality of the group's decisions is similar to what we'd achieve with lengthy deliberation, and all candidate organizations get some support just for taking part.
Shared Nation In the News
What Citizens Are Saying
Shared Nation has created this fun, friendly, informative model that let's me participate in initiatives that I would never otherwise hear about, interact with people I would never have found and contribute in ways beyond (and including!) the dollars I spend. I love that even the initiatives that don't "win" now have exposure and each initiative has the potential to spark imagination and creativity.
As this idea grows, the world will have more people with a deeper understanding of the issues and solutions out there for fixing global concerns. And through pooling our money, we are hopefully making a bigger impact than if we were all separately searching for ways to help.
This is a game-changer for how we come together to create impact. My contribution can only do so much. But if thousands of us, or a million of us (let's hold that vision, shall we?) all put in whatever we can, imagine the impact we could have!
