What is Fund A Cause?
Fund A Cause is an international online platform that brings together Penny Appeal’s Global Humanitarian Projects from various fields (Water, Health, Emergencies, Education etc.). and continents (Africa, Asia, Europe) that are seeking a financial push to complete their achievements. During the online conference, each cause is given 5-7 minutes to pitch their project initiative to an audience of corporate and individual potential supporters (investors, advisors, corporates, etc.). Following each presentation, anyone from the audience can ask questions and challenge the project proposition, if interested.
Donations are decided solely by donors at their own discretion. Moreover, all projects have been meticulously selected and audited by Penny Appeal Middle East.
