How it works


Planetfunder is a socially minded, Australian private business that is 100% self-funding. We don’t accept any corporate donations or government money or receive public grants of any kind. 

We raise funds for great people and causes!

We need to keep the platform self-funding so it can remain viable. 

From all payments received on behalf of partners we deduct the cost of credit card transaction fees + 5%.   

This goes to pay for our minimal expenses and to invest back into the platform.


Funds are raised through Planetfunder in two ways.


Community Campaigns is a platform for campaigners to offer a peer to peer crowdfunding campaign. 

We help your supporters become participants, join your cause, help you promote your campaign merchandise, sign your petitions and more! 

With your project, you will be able to offer your perks and other merchandise for sale.

You can sell tickets and digital products such as downloads and videos directly from custom landing pages on Planetfunder.


Rainmakers allows your Planetfunder to accept payments via our mobile app to your campaign. 

You can offer recurring monthly subscriptions and upsell and cross sell your offers to your supporters by encouraging adoptions of your campaign, and get featured on the Planetfunder home page.

A documentary for example sells tickets to screenings, then signs up the audience to make a contribution to their community activation program on a tablet or phone, using one platform.

Donated funds are used by Planetfunder to make private grants to  non-profit partners to achieve the outcomes.


Building and maintaining our website is essential to the program as are our ongoing efforts to support the needs of donors and groups we support.

These costs for Rainmakers equate to 20% of the income.  



Planetfunder disburses funds each month. Campaigners are required to;

  • Have projects consistent with Planetfunder’s mission and objectives
  • Agree to provide project updates and reports
  • Agree to complete stated objectives such as deliver perks
  • Agree to spend funds only in meeting the stated objectives of the project
