USE YOUR SKILLS TO POWER GOOD

Almost every inspiring idea needs funds, but it's often the invaluable advice, know-how, support and mentorship from people who care that can make the real difference.

That's why kriticalmass is the crowd community that not only lets you use your wallet and voice to support a project, but your brains and hands as well. If you are great at… whatever, helping with what you do best will have a lot more impact for a project than just a cash donation. Some call it pro-bono work or skilled volunteering, we call it powering good.

What is it all about?

We allow you to support a project with what you do best. It doesn't matter if you are a lawyer giving an hour of advice or a builder helping with refurbishments; a journalist supporting PR activities or simply somebody who makes awesome cupcakes and wants to organise a bake-off fundraiser. You are the person best suited to understanding how your skills can power good on kriticalmass, so don’t be afraid to make suggestions. Read an inspiring example here.

Why would you want to do that?

Using your skills to power good feels good - trust us! You'll work with inspiring causes and people, and become part of a caring community. You get to work in an environment that is all about having positive impact. No big company bureaucracy, only one goal: powering good.

Volunteering provides a wealth of experiences that helps you grow, personally and professionally. Each will leave you with a great story to tell, be it among friends or during a job interview. If that's not enough, some creators might offer you unique rewards for helping them out.

How does it work?

Project creators can list what kind of support they need most. If you have a skill that they need and you love what they are doing, we will put you in touch.

Our creators know that every little helps and that you have many other things going on in your life. It's up to you to determine how much time or skill you want to invest, from a one hour advisory skype call, to ongoing weekend support or two weeks of working with the team full-time. You can fit powering good into your lifestyle, location and preferred way of working.
