We want to create an open-source charity platform, in which the transparency removes the chances of misuse of the donated funds, both by campaign organizers and by the internal team of the donation platform.
What has been done already
members of the association
Organized our work (Discord, Drive, GitHub, Ora.pm, splitting into teams).
Choice of logo and design.
A non-profit organization as well as a trademark "Podkrepi BG" was registered.
Partnered for free hosting services with Superhosting and ICN.bg.
For now we utilise the following means of self-sufficiency - yearly membership fee, individual and corporate donations for the association, potentially we're thinking of applying for a funding program, but that's for the long-term plan.
Opened a donations account in UniCredit Bulbank IBAN: BG66 UNCR 7000 1524 3490 32 with holder Association Podkrepi BG.
Held a series of meetings with NGO representatives to understand better and define the problem which we have to solve.
Wrote up 270 user stories and chose the path for achieving a Minimum Lovable Product.
We have active teams working on the frontend and on the key modules for creating campaigns and handling payments.
We united around using a microservice architecture, so that more people with different technology backgrounds can be involved.
