Once the project has been created, you have the opportunity to move forward and launch your project!  

Social media!

We have incorporated sharing tools, which you can find on the project page: share with your friends on Facebook, Twitter or by email.

This is, of course, just to get you started; let your imagination run wild! Spread the word on your blog or your personal website; talk to friends at parties, to your neighbors, to people at your local supermarket… everybody you know.

Social media is the key!

Before your project can launch, we require that you enter a PayPal address in your project details. When your project successfully reaches its deadline, the funds will automatically be transferred to that PayPal account.

At Help Fund A Veteran, we believe that you should get compensated for your efforts and do not require your project to be 100% funded in order to transfer your funds.  

Registering on the website and submitting projects. We charge when you complete a project.  

We will keep 5% of the funds you collect if your project is successful. In addition, Stripe may charge a  rate of 2.9% plus 30 cents per transaction when we transfer funds.

Here is what you can expect:

The financing goal was reached (or exceeded) – In this case, all fans’ contributions will be transferred to your PayPal or Stripe account. Note that it is your responsibility to ensure that rewards are fully delivered to each of your fans.

That’s good news! As long as the project has not reached its deadline, fans are still able to participate and contribute (again). On another note, this is a chance for you to find ways to spice your project up a bit. Or perhaps, you may want to thank your fans with even better rewards!

We accept all types of art, from literature to films, visual arts and craft, music, performances, fashion, design, and video games. While these are the most common ones, we expect art to continuously evolve. So, we are certainly open to any form of art there is.

Despite this neutrality, we aim at promoting and maintaining quality as a simple rule of thumb. Not all of us are, or will be, creatives. But as fans, we can all easily agree that well thought out projects with clear objectives do go a long way and warrants more than just a nod and a pat in the back.

Finally, it goes without saying that any and all forms of illegal content will not be accepted on this site.

Contributing to a Project

Yes. Our credit card processor, will debit the amount straight away and send you a confirmation email.

Unfortunately, that’s now too late. Once the project has ended and the funds have been transferred it’s out of our hands.

Nothing simpler. On the project page, click the button ‘I want to contribute’. On the next screen, enter how much you’d like to contribute, and choose the reward you want. After you click the ‘Let’s go’ button, you’ll be redirected to PayPal. As a secure payment channel, it will enable you to pre-authorize the payment. Once finished, you will be directed back to this platform and receive a confirmation email.

We use Stripe to power the transactions on our site. Stripe are the biggest payment processors on the internet, and accepts all sorts of credit cards. You will need to create an account with them if you don’t have one already (quick and easy).

At Help Fund A Veteran, we believe that you should get compensated for your efforts and do not require your project to be 100% funded in order to transfer your funds.  

Registering on the website and contributing to projects is completely free. Save your money for the veterans!

Sure. Just send us a message using the contact form and let us know what you want to do.

Even if a campaign has not successfully reached its goals of 100%, all contributions regardless of the outcome will be released to our veterans.
