Frequently Asked Questions:
How are the projects chosen?
The Project Solution board members take their time to find projects that we feel will make a long term impact for a local community. Through research and personal contacts, we work to find partnerships with local non-profits/NGO’s who have a reputable track record of successful accomplishments before we consider a collaboration.
How does The Project Solution make sure the money is being used for the project?
Before collaborating with an NGO, The Project Solution works to ensure that we are partnering with legitimate organizations who are well established in their community and have done similar projects in the past. These NGO’s must prove they are a legitimate non-profit/NGO under their government regulations. Also, The Project Solution issues payments in milestones not lump sums, so that we can receive project updates to see the progress and share that with our donors.
When I make a donation do I choose a project or is one chosen for me?
At the present time we are assigning new donors onto the next project we fund. If our current project is fully funded, your money is held until a new project is ready and then 100% of your donation is earmarked for that next project. You will automatically be assigned to a Donation Team and notified via email of the project you are assigned to.
I’ve made a donation but it seems to be taking a while to be assigned to a Donation Team for a project
Though there are many issues facing people around the world, we work hard to ensure that the organization we are collaborating with can commit to completing the project and maintain it over time. Seeking out a new organization, vetting them and finalizing a project can sometimes be time consuming but it allows us more assurance that the work will get done and that your donation is going to make a real difference to a community in need. Sometimes we’ll be able to assign you to a project quickly but other times it may take longer. We thank you for your patience in advance!
What if I signed up for an annual donation but no longer wish to continue?
There is no obligation to stay with The Project Solution. You may cancel at any time. Any money previously sent to us is non-refundable.
Why does it sometimes take a long time to receive a new update on a project?
Working in a developing country can bring a huge range of issues that we may not always be considering as a westerner. Real issues that we’ve already faced include: waiting two months for the rains to stop and having a site that can only be reached by walking for four days! With logistics like these, it can sometimes take up to six months to see a project fully completed. We will always send you updates as we receive them.
How can you use 100% of the money for projects?
One of our most important ideals is to continue using ALL of the donors money for projects under our Subscription for Change program. We explore various private funding sources such as grants, foundations and angel donors to help cover our operational expenses in order to keep the projects 100% donor funded. We also hold various fundraisers throughout the year in order to bring in funds specifically for operations.
How can I help contribute to your operating expenses?
If you are an individual or a family who is in a position to help us with funding, contact Joe Gonzalez at firstname.lastname@example.org
Can I make a donation “In Memory of..” or “In Honor of…” someone?
Yes. Email Tara Bracco at email@example.com with your request BEFORE you make a donation and we will send you the details.
How can I submit a project and what are the requirements?
We are always considering new projects! If you are part of an organization that is interested in applying for a grant to fund a project, please review our grant submission overview.
Do you accept volunteers?
Our model is designed specifically to provide the funding required for projects and we rely on the local NGO to manage the construction of the project itself. Because of this we don’t accept volunteers for the purpose of travel or work on the projects themselves. We can put you directly in touch with organizations we’ve worked with in the past and have a good relationship with! Contact Joe Gonzalez for more details.
