A Status Update on Donr’s Investment Campaign

Calling all members of our Donr Community – from our 1,800 brilliant charities, to our third-party partners, to potential investors who have been following us in recent months – we’re now able to share with you an update on our Crowdcube investment campaign.

A Status Update

When we embarked upon our first-ever crowdfunding campaign in November, we knew it would be incredibly hard work – but we also felt that above all, our mission would help potential investors see as much value in our technology and our work as we do.

And it did. Our campaign closed just short of our target at midnight last night (30th January). And so in light of this, we’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all those who got involved – whether you were an investor, told a friend about our campaign, or simply shared a social post of ours.

Thank you for believing in our mission, and thank you for believing in the power of tech-for-good.

Whilst we didn’t quite hit our target, it’s been incredibly inspiring to see people from all walks of life get behind our mission – just one of the reasons we’ll definitely crowdfund again in the future.

The Future

During the course of this investment campaign, we’ve learned a lot.

We’ve learned that running a crowdfunding campaign is challenging and all-consuming – but also rewarding, in more ways than we thought it could be.

We’ve learned a lot about how to run an effective campaign, and will take this knowledge into our future crowdfunding endeavours.

But mostly, we’ve learned a whole lot about ourselves – our values, who we are here at Donr, and the many reasons why we remain so proud to be a part of the brilliant third sector.

We’re currently in the process of completing other investment outside of our crowdfunding campaign. We can’t say much at the moment, but we will be commenting on this in due course. Any investment that has been committed to Donr during this campaign will not be taken from Crowdcube investors.

So again, we thank you for following us on this journey over the past few months and hope that you’ll stay tuned for future news and opportunities here at Donr.

From all at Team Donr x
