Goteo is a civic opensource crowdfunding platform focused on citizen initiatives and social, cultural, technological and educational projects. The platform not only encourages collaborative actions among communities, but also their design and blueprint under an open-source model. Managed by a non-profit foundation (with consequent tax advantages for donors) Goteo’s multidisciplinary team develops tools and services for co-creation and collective funding. Their work and projects are tightly linked to principles of transparency, progress and societal improvement.
Moreover, they encourage the transfer of civil society’s values to the institutional sphere, in order to enhance participative adoption of public policies as well as facilitate and encourage self-organization and citizen participation. Goteo.org supports an average of 200 initiatives per year, raising c.1.6 million euros among a community of more than 236.430 users, with a success rate of 80,6%. All this activity is published and traceable through the website stats.goteo.org.
Goteo.org is a pioneer in implementing programmes and alliances with universities, local governments, cooperatives, SMEs and social innovation bodies, promoting hybrid match-funding formulas with both public and private economic resources to benefit and launch projects supported by citizens.
