How It Works

There are 3 simple steps involved to raise money on ChirotaFund. However, we advise you to review our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) before you follow these steps for insight into crowdfunding, the process for fundraising, and how to make a contribution.

Tell Your Story

1. Tell Your Story

Telling your story ("campaign") is a critical part of fundraising. Your story must be written in such a way that gives a clear picture of your cause and the reason why you need to raise money. ChirotaFund recognizes that not everyone will know how to tell their story and for this reason staff is available to assist in writing campaigns for a fee. Campaigns are written in English and Amharic.

2. Share Your Story

Once your campaign is ready, it will have its own dedicated page on ChirotaFund's website. This published page can then be shared with family and friends on social media and by text to raise awareness for your cause. The more awareness of your cause, the better chance at raising more money to support your need.

3. Receive Money

Contributions are made directly to your dedicated webpage for your campaign. Money can be given in many different currencies (may not be available via PayPal).  Although not an exhaustive list, some examples include Australian dollar (AUD), Canadian dollar (CAD), Danish Krone (DKK), Euro (EUR), Hong Kong dollar (HKD), Japanese yen (JPY), New Zealand dollar (NZD), Pound sterling (British pound) (GBP), Swedish Krona (SEK), Singapore dollar (SGD), United States dollar (USD).
