How It Works

Why HolidayFunder?


  1. We started HolidayFunder to give families, friends and individuals their own platform for raising money towards there holiday, either in part or full. Large crowdfunding sites contain campaigns for everything from new businesses to community projects to family emergencies, making it complicated and challenging for people to fund there holiday and find their voice.


  1. In a poll we conducted, we found that 72% of respondents would help family and friends. Interestingly enough, people were even willing to contribute to strangers in making their lives easier or help them to achieve their goals. We believe in the power of social crowdfunding and with HolidayFunder, we want to make it possible for anyone to have the holiday of their dreams!
