On the coldest days of the year we start 2017 with good New Year's resolutions. We would like to make your life easier, also in matter of taxes. In fact, the tax advantages for your donations reach up to 75% for individuals and up to 35% for companies. Please, remind that you have until 25th January to confirm your tax data and download your 2016 donation certificate. If you make it on time, your donations will be tax-deductible in your next tax report!
During the last weeks we will be on many fronts. And this is not a joke, as you will see, we are going to be at the same time in three countries and two continents. Let's break it down bit by bit.
16-20 January we are in Chile for our LearnByFunding Crowdfunding workshop in collaboration with the Slow Food Chile Network that has been involved in several national projects on gastronomic heritage.
26 January we have the last Meetup with the Commons Startup Support Programme La Comunificadora promoted by Barcelona Activa and developed together with Platoniq and the Free Knowledge Institute. We are currently training the participants on business models that combine a p2p collaborative production model with commons-oriented community projects, shared knowledge and a sustainable income-generation.
As already stated, on 1-2 February we will be at Roma Caput Mundi for The Digital Social Innovation Fair - DSI Fair 2017 - organized by the ChIC consortium. The goal of the event is to provide coordination and support initiatives from the European Digital Social Innovation (DSI), within the Collective Awareness Platforms for Sustainability and Social Innovation (CAPS) community that we are part of. We have been invited to participate as speakers for the session titled: Designing Technologies and Innovation for Social Impact. We would be delighted to talk about Goteo, his specificities compared to other crowdfunding models and about the social impact of the projects we support.
Talking about projects that benefit the community, we have selected especially for you some energetic (and committed) campaigns for this cold season. We guess you will like them, check them out!
