Indiegogo and GoFundMe have co-created a first-of-its-kind Trust Alliance to focus on trust policy, fraud detection, and prevention best practices of crowdfunding. We are igniting a call to action for crowdfunding trust and safety teams to come together and share best practices to work towards a common goal of weeding out bad actors and promoting trust and safety within our online global communities.
What Is the Crowdfunding Trust Alliance?
The Crowdfunding Trust Alliance provides a secure and trustworthy platform for consumers and entrepreneurs. It’s an essential component for a crowdfunding platform of any kind to thrive. Our goal is to create clear standards for the industry as a whole and have leaders come together to share best practices, trends, and promote trust and safety.
Our Core Principles:
Knowledge is power when outmaneuvering fraud. All Crowdfunding Trust Alliance members meet on a monthly basis to share challenges and solutions pertaining to trust and safety.
Our goal is to implement a unified strategy for detecting fraudulent uses of our platforms and work to empower campaign owners with a track record of reliability.
A united front
Protecting trust is not a battle to be fought alone. By meeting regularly and maintaining open lines of communication, Trust Alliance members employ a unified strategy.
The Crowdfunding Trust Alliance encourages other reputable platforms to join our alliance using our common vision to make online crowdfunding safer.
