WHAT DOES THREADSTART DO?
ThreadStart offers an apparel crowdfunding platform where anyone can raise funds and awareness for worthy causes through your own custom line of shirts. For each items sold, we give you $8 and there are no up front costs. You can accept donations as well.
WHO USES THREADSTART?
Organizations and individuals use ThreadStart. You don't have to be a non-profit to use our service and you can be anywhere in the world.
HOW MUCH DOES THREADSTART COST?
It's free to signup with ThreadStart. Potential platform fees are: 1) bank wire fees for payouts to international bank accounts, 2) the design fee for artwork for your shirts should you choose that option ($50 deducted at the end of the campaign).
HOW LONG CAN A CAMPAIGN BE?
Campaigns can be up to 90 days (we recommend 30 to 60 days for most). As a note, ThreadStart has a separate program where each week we have a campaign to raise funds for a charity or microloan recipient as our featured campaign.
WHAT IF THE FUNDING GOAL IS NOT REACHED, OR EXCEEDED?
The organization or individual is then provided with the funds that were raised, even if the goal was not reached.
In the case the goal is exceeded they can use the funds to do more good!
WHEN AND HOW ARE THE FUNDS RAISED RECEIVED?
You have the option to withdraw money raised at the end of each week if receiving funds via PayPal. Otherwise, the organization or individual is sent the funds raised the day after the campaign ends using Paypal, Wepay, check or bank wire.
CAN A CAMPAIGN BE CANCELLED?
Only if no funds have yet been raised. Otherwise, the campaign must stay active. To cancel a campaign that has no sales email firstname.lastname@example.org
WHAT KIND OF APPAREL DO YOU USE?
We use ultra premium tees from our friends at Alternative Apparel.
