New fundraising platform matches projects with funders based on impact

| Return|

A fundraising platform has launched in the UK with the aim of matchmaking charities with funders by demonstrating the impact of their work, specifically in the context of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Maanch focuses on project-specific funding and uses algorithms to provide automated impact measurement based on UN SDG metrics and a matchmaking tool that automatically connects projects with funders, from individuals, to trusts and foundations, and corporate sponsors.

Funders can pre-select interests, geographies and SDGs, with projects seeking funding then prioritised according to how well they fit the criteria of the funder, based on the topics they address, how these relate to the SDGs, and their impact, both globally and locally. They can then shortlist and compare projects, and select what they want to fund.
