What are the advantages of there-for-you.com?
The there-for-you.com team wants to facilitate and implement. It is important for us to seize every possible opportunity and to realise projects together with the project initiators and donors. We are passionate about what we do and are committed to finding the best solutions possible.
We offer access to mobile & digital generations – and thus to the donors of tomorrow. With the there-for-you.com donation platform and small-scale commitment, we offer the means to make a real difference. The digital platform allows us to be the multiplicator (for companies, interested parties, media partners, prominent figures, supporters) to achieve the best possible effect.
We and our project partners are transparent, and thanks to the established criteria and communicated measures all donors know at all times how and where their money is being used. Thanks to targeted updates and information, donors are able to identify with the project and make a difference.
We protect the environment since we do without paper and postage, helping to reduce our environmental footprint.
Are checks carried out for all non-profit & project organisations that are on there-for-you.com?
All organisations that activate their donation purpose on there-for-you.com or enter into a partnership are checked by us. Before an organisation is admitted, it must have a specific project implementation schedule and the project must achieve a demonstrable impact. Only projects are activated that make a difference in the three areas of child aid, climate protection and animal welfare. The organisations have a duty of disclosure towards there-for-you.com and must always act in a manner that is transparent and meaningful.
A wide range of data is requested and checked by us during the project registration process. Furthermore, we are in personal contact with each and every organisation. Accordingly, all admissions are processed on a case-by-case basis and subject to individual decision. We are non-party and non-denominational.
Preferential tax treatment, a Spendengütesiegel (seal of quality for donations) or other labels are not prerequisites for acceptance. During registration, however, enquiries are made into these so that donors can be informed accordingly.
Am I anonymous on there-for-you.com?
For each individual donation you can choose how you want to appear on the respective project page under “supporter”. Either your full name and the amount of your donation will be visible or the term “anonymous” and the amount of your donation will be displayed.
Some of your data will be passed on to the initiators, but they are also obliged to treat it confidentially.
By entering more comprehensive details about yourself you have the advantage that you can keep track of your donation activity and selected projects at all times in an overview when you log in. This means that you automatically become part of your donor community.
The merge with I care for you
The platform I care for you closed down, but there is still a place for the project initiators and the loyal donation community: here, at there-for-you.com.
We are happy about the trust of I care for you and want to continue their great work.

Assistance for project initiators
Who can put a project on there-for-you.com?
Before an organisation is admitted, it must have a specific project implementation schedule and the project must achieve a demonstrable impact. Initiators can be an aid organisation, company, individual or also a group. Only projects are activated that make a difference in the three areas of child aid, climate protection and animal welfare; in the category «Social and Humanitarian», only projects with the following focus will be published:
- Projects that provide emergency aid to a society or a section of society in emergency situations.
- Projects that serve the common good and have a benefit for the general public
- Projects that have a multiplier effect
In individual cases, projects that fall outside of these criteria can be given a «green card» for publication (examination and decision lies with the there-for-you foundation).
What demands are made on the project initiators?
The organisations have a duty of disclosure towards there-for-you.com and must always act in a manner that is transparent and meaningful. A wide range of data is requested and checked by us during the project registration process. Furthermore, we are in personal contact with each and every organisation. Accordingly, all admissions are processed on a case-by-case basis and subject to individual decision. We are non-party and non-denominational. Preferential tax treatment, a Spendengütesiegel (seal of quality for donations) or other labels are not prerequisites for acceptance. During registration, however, enquires are made into these so that donors can be informed accordingly. More detailed instructions can be found in the guide to the project launch.
It is also mandatory to publish a project video. The purpose of the video is tell viewers more about the project initiators, the idea and the concept. The video can be self-directed as outlined in the instructions or realised in collaboration with the platform partner Yoveo.ch. The video should be between 60 and 120 seconds long.
Once the donation target has been reached and the duration of the project has finished, there-for-you.com will collect and transfer any donations. Once all donations have been received, the initiators are required to post an update on the platform every two months to keep donors up to date on the progress of the project. Within a year, a video must be uploaded to there-for-you.com to show donors how their money has been used and how they were able to contribute to the success of the project. There must be regular updates prior to posting the video.
If it is not possible to all implement all the points specified in the request plan, there-for-you.com reserves the right to decline acceptance of the project or to deactivate it.
Do the project partners incur any platform costs?
Project partners do not pay any registration fees or basic charges. Only when donations are received is a deduction made for the charges levied by the payment provider for these donations, along with a small service fee. The project partner will receive 90% of the donations received if the donation target is achieved within the project duration and the donations are collected.
Usage therefore does not pose any cost risk and is thus also possible for smaller partner organisations.
Which areas can projects be from?
Only projects can be activated on the there-for-you.com platform that are primarily geared towards assistance and support for the topics of animal welfare, child aid, climate protection and social and humanitarian.
How do I post a project on there-for-you.com?
On the main platform there-for-you.com and the topic pages there-for-animals.com, there-for-children.com and there-for-climate.com, click on the «Start your project» button and you will then be redirected to the input screen.
As soon as you have entered the information, we can check your project and contact you personally. If all requirements are met, we will activate the project on the platform.
What support can the there-for-you.com team offer me when setting up the project?
Project initiators are given personal support and advice by our team when setting up the project and during the whole process. The team will also be happy to advise you in selecting the target amount or give you tips on activating the project. You can submit your questions or comments at the end of the activation process using the form or contact us directly at email@example.com.
If you need professional support with individual topics, we will be happy to refer you to one of our partner firms which offer the corresponding services in professional quality and at fair partner prices. The there-for-you.com team offers targeted support in the field of drafting texts, reviewing texts, drawing up concepts (implementation, finances, communication) and reporting (post-processing, etc.). You can find out more here.
How is the donor community made aware of my project?
there-for-you.com has set itself the goal of becoming – through its communication measures – the most well-known and effective donation platform (child aid, animal welfare, climate protection, humanitarian) in Switzerland, and later also internationally. Projects in the area of animal welfare, nature conservation and climate protection always strike a strong emotional chord. The communication strategy takes targeted advantage of the emotions that are tied up with animals, people and climate issues. Authentic, honest storytelling that is visible and verifiable is at the heart of all classical and creative communication elements. Not to provide a sensation, but to impart knowledge.
The initiatives on there-for-you.com cannot be taken for granted. You, too, are called up to launch your project on all channels and to mobilise your community (friends, family, business). Every possible multiplicator takes us one step closer to the goal.
Is money also paid out even if the project does not secure 100% funding?
No. If the target amount has not been reached within the specified time, donations are not collected from donors. The there-for-you foundation can also donate to the projects that are just short of achieving their target. This is decided by the board of the there-for-you foundation.
What happens if a project achieves its funding target ahead of schedule?
If a project achieves its funding target before the deadline set, this will continue to run until the effective project end. Donors can therefore continue to financially support the project even if it has already exceeded the financial target set. It goes without out saying that the full amount is disbursed to the project – and thus should have an ever greater impact.
