Task4Good.com is a social enterprise founded by Sofan Harris in the year 2020. In 2020 many creative people are looking for new sources of clients and buyers for their services and goods.
At the same time, many nonprofit organizations are looking to find new sources of donors.
Solution: We have built a freelancer platform which helps organizations leverage their network to help find work for their members, thereby enabling those members to donate more to the cause of the organization. If you have a nonprofit org, we can make you a landing page like this:
You could then tell your members all about it and they select your org when they register on the website in order to automatically give you 15% (for example) of the money they earn on the platform while they are completing tasks, which they get paid for by other members of the platform/their community.
There will be two main types of users on task4good.com. These are Buyers/Customers and Freelancers/Service Providers. The first thing we need to do on the platform is to get a bunch of "Projects" (things that need doing) posted by the BUYERS, that can then later be completed for a fee by the FREELANCERS. And, Service Providers/FREELANCERS to post the services or goods they have to offer. When you 1st register there is a dropdown menu to select the nonprofit you want to support. If a person says their task costs $100, and they give 20% to SICA, with 10% admin fees (5% card fee + 5% to task4good), the person would keep $70, SICA would raise $20 and T4G would earn $5.
With this business model, everyone wins! The person purchasing the service is buying from someone they may already know, while supporting the organization. The person providing the service has a new source of clients and is supporting the organization. Task4Good makes enough income to keep the platform live. The organization (SICA in this example) pays nothing to have a profile on Task4Good.com, and receives $20 as a donation.
