Together, we have 'crowdfunded' a documentary, a book, cryonics hardship support, and half a dozen scientific research projects.
Meanwhile, some life extension projects have used the greater reach of these bigger crowdfunding websites with great success.
Considering that nowadays, everyone can promote their projects on a crowdfunding platform, what role can LongeCity play in enabling community-sourced initiatives?
Firstly, we can simply act as a 'crowdfunding directory' for life-extension projects. Members can post links to current initiatives here.
Moreover, we can bring something extra that advocates of 'effective altruism' may appreciate:
LongeCity can offer to review projects - internally, by the community and scientifically.
This cannot be an absolute safeguard, but it provides a greater measure of quality assurance to the community.
And this, our community, is the second important feature: In contrast to general fundraising sites, the fact that the project is linked to the community on an on-going basis and in a hands-on manner means more interactivity, communication, cross-fertilization of ideas and better scrutiny. If they were not before, the fundraising team can become part of that community and over time this will strengthen the network of protagonists in life extension research immeasurably.
Crowdfunding teams can also apply to get their external fundraiser 'accredited' by LongeCity:
There are 2 types of certification:
LongeCity has reviewed the project and endorses it as a reputable initiative in line with its mission.
LongeCity supports the fundraiser with up to $800. Application fee applies*.
To apply: Write to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
a- Full personal and contact details of the lead applicant.
b- Relevant background details of the key beneficiaries.
c- All the information that you would supply on the fundraising website.
d- A breakdown of costs.
e- Would you like to raise funds via LongeCity and/or an external platform?
f- Would you like to try for a 'star rating'? A $40 application fee applies.
Please allow for a review time of ca.30days. Complex reviews may take longer.
