Community Fundraisers


New Page 1 LongeCity has facilitated 'crowdfunding' well before many other platforms in use today. 
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:
