How can I participate to get funding to one of the education programs?
First and foremost you must be clear about the education program you would like to attend. From FutureFunded we suggest some partner schools that allow using our campaigns to attend their programs. You also have the option of being proactive and propose another program you would like to attend.
Once you are sure about the program the second step is creating your campaign where you will be presented to the FutureFunded community, provide information about why you would like to do this program and also some more details about the rewards you would like to establish. We encourage you to look at some of our examples for inspiration here: https://futurefunded.co/campaigns
Can I propose any education program I would like to attend?
Of course! As Future Funded we propose some programs of schools we have as partners, but we are sure that there are many other programs whom with we have partnered yet and that fit the philosophy and interests of our crowdfunding. We encourage you to contact us and tell us about the program you would like to attend, we will study each case to facilitate the management and procedure.
How do the crowdfunding in FutureFunded works?
The dynamic of crowdfunding is delivering rewards in exchange of financial contributions to reach a goal. These rewards are key in order for campaigns to work, there we highly recommend thinking them thoroughly and get inspired with some examples we have created in: https://futurefunded.co/campaigns
The second key for a successful campaign is how the candidate is presented, videos are always great to become known. And last a strategy for diffusion in order to reach out to your immediate community.
These are some of the most basic tips, whenever you fill the form to create your campaign we will get in touch with you and we will give you information and help in all the process of creation of the campaign. We have created a folder with helpful resources to create a successful campaign: click here to access it. As well we will provide examples of successful campaigns.

What is the objective of the financing?
Is the quantity of money that you propose to raise in order to attend your education program. We suggest calculating a budget that takes into account the cost of the program, and an extra 7% which is the commission that FutureFunded takes over the total cost of the program for our services.
Is there a minimum or maximum of financing?
The amount raised has to cover the cost of the program. Future Funded does not serve as a way to afford transport, materials, food and other costs associated with participating on a program. Take into account and be realistic with what you can ask for and expect from your backers.
Who receives the money?
Once your campaign is successful, we will be in touch with you to congratulate you and we will send the sum to your school in order to pay for the tuition. Don’t worry, you will just have to attend the program and improve yourself!
How and when do I give out the rewards?
The maximum time to deliver the rewards to all your backers is 3 months after you have finished the course, however some rewards you may be able to deliver during the time you are doing your program. Don’t leave it all to the end, interact and share with your backers your progress, make them feel like they are part of your program.
What happens if I don’t reach my goal?
FutureFunded works on an all-or-nothing model, we understand that if you don’t have all the money to pay for the cost of the program you won’t be able to attend the program. Therefore, sadly, we will have to give back every backer their money back and we will not retain any of those funds.
How can I finance the education of a person?
It’s very easy, you just have to access a person’s campaign, choose your reward and fund them!
What kind of rewards do I get if I invest?
The rewards vary depending on the education program and also the learner but they maybe from assisting a masterclass, or doing a concrete task or functionality related with the education program.
