The Good Exchange allows Projects to automatically match with potential sources of funding. This enables applicants to create a single application that can access multiple sources of funding.
When Creating an Application, applicants answer a series of questions about the project outlining what it is, why they are doing it, who will benefit, which charitable category the project falls in to, where the project will take place; etc. Funders create Funding Schemes where they can select their preferred type of project, area of operation, charitable categories etc. This information is used to match projects with potential funders automatically who can then shortlist the project to potentially receive a Funding Offer.
If a project has been matched to a funding scheme, Applicants can see this in their Dashboard. Funders can communicate directly with applicants, ask further questions, make funding offers, share Terms and Conditions and also view other matching funders who may potentially co-fund a project.
