We are so grateful that SeedMoney helped us more than double the amount of money that we raised toward our project the Green Bay Garden Blitz. Our project has started more than 349 gardens our out community including school gardens, food pantries, shelters and agencies that work with low income individuals.

They money we raised through SeedMoney will go far to help Kalindi Village in Zambia start its farming project, and ultimately benefit the village, its school and the children. SeedMoney allowed us to tap a source of funds other than the usual for a specific purpose of high priority to one of our Zambia partners.

We applaud SeedMoney and its imaginative funding mechanism. It is clearly filling a need, both at home and abroad.

I feel so fortunate to have connected with Seed Money! From the beginning seed money has supported us during the entire process- helping our small garden in Colombia have a bigger platform to raise money and be part of a big picture - it is wonderful to feel part of a larger movement of planting the seeds for children, education and connecting people in their communities. We look forward to sending photos as our project grows! Thank you, Seed Money!!!

SeedMoney is a remarkable initiative and is run most professionally indeed! Throughout the campaign, ideas and information are forth-coming. The campaign has made it possible to streamline our demonstration garden and we applaud Roger Doiron for making access to crowd-funding so seamless. Thank-you!

At the Giving Garden of Twin Ponds in Shoreline, WA, we run all our efforts with donations and volunteers. Gathering funds is so difficult and it is hard for us to reach our own community. As gardeners who want to be in the garden, we are so grateful for SEEDMONEY! Their platform helps us reach our community, raise the funds we need to be successful growing food for our local foodbank, and most important to us - keeps us in the garden sharing our love of growing with our community. Thank you SeedMoney!

We've done crowdfunding grants with SeedMoney for the last two years. They work quickly and provide an amazing and straightforward platform for setting up and soliciting donations. This has allowed us to focus on doing the work instead of worrying about where our next source of funding will come from; collaborating with SeedMoney is an integral piece of our funding strategy.

This campaign was not only excellent, but a lot of fun. There was outstanding support from Roger and individual questions were answered within hours. I also appreciated all the media support with pictures and ideas for Facebook posts. Thank you for opening up this opportunity to us!

We are a very small organization that has struggled mightily with fundraising. In the past we have hosted events that take a LOT of resources in terms of volunteer time to plan, promote and execute. This $eedMoney campaign was the least resource intensive fundraiser we have ever conducted - and brought in MORE MONEY than any event we have ever put on. We are thrilled and grateful!

I run a small community garden in CT and we are in constant need of funds for garden upkeep. SeedMoney is a wonderful organization! Through a recent crowdfunding campaign they ran, I was able to raise $1,000 in two days just by working my Face Book connections.
