FaithLauncher is the crowdfunding platform for faith-based projects. We support Christian Filmmakers, Musicians, Artists, Entertainers, Authors, Ministry Leaders, Entrepreneurs and many others. Faith based projects can now bring awareness to others with similar values to help them raise the funds they need to get their project off the ground.
Our dream was and is to create an online community where Christians can gather to support their ideas; each giving what they could. We believe that when we foster the talents God has given us we can do greater things together than what we can do when we act alone.
“It’s better to have a partner than go it alone. Share the work, share the wealth. And if one falls down, the other helps, But if there’s no one to help, tough!” Eccles 4:9-10 (MSG)
You can build your campaign and submit it for “final review and publishing.” Every campaign on FaithLauncher goes through a vetting process where we’ll either publish it or send you recommendations for how you can better position your campaign for success. We pride ourselves in providing Coaching support. Once your campaign is “Live” you can then share it with your friends, engage others, and collect contributions. We also actively promote projects through our social media channels, blog and partner network. Therefore take the time to present your campaign in the best possible light to increase your odds of benefiting from some extra exposure.
We started FaithLauncher to enable any Christian to take their passions from simply being an idea to it becoming a reality all while helping to spread the message of Christ thru their creativity.
FaithLauncher provides a platform to raise funds for any Christian inspired project.
Regardless of whom you are or where you live, you can fund your project on FaithLauncher if it promotes, has a theme or beneficiaries of the Christian community.
It’s FREE to start a project. If you do raise funds you keep 90% of the money raised. If you don’t raise anything (knock on wood!) then you don’t incur a cost.
We keep 7% so that we can continue working hard to support FaithLauncher projects. The rest is the payment-processing fee, which ranges between 3% - 4%.
For U.S projects, funds are processed by WePay and their fee is 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction.
For International projects, funds are processed through Paypal and their fee is 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction. (Note: they sometimes also have currency exchange fee.)
Check out our Launch page to see the added value you'll receive by launching with us.
FaithLauncher is focused on helping Christians have a successful launch experience and facilitating more targeted exposure. We do this by taking a more relational approach by offering you Coaching support. You can take advantage of our consultative expertise for free. Who is doing that? Exactly!!

There is no wondering what type of audience you’ll be attracting to your campaign on our platform. Those that follow us and come to our site are those that believe in the values that we share; this targeted exposure can only increase your chances of success.
Plus, on FaithLauncher you won’t have to panic about putting in all that work and worrying about not receiving anything at the end if you happen to fall a bit short. Here you will keep what you raise.
You don’t have to provide rewards/incentives BUT experience has told us that those project that tend to reach their funding goal are those that offer some form of reward. We HIGHLY recommend you do as well and sometimes it doesn’t even have be tangible items; get creative!!
You’ll give your Supporters another way to engage and participate. A volunteer request is a call for Volunteers. You want to answer the question, “How else can people help your project.” Volunteer requests is the answer. Post it and give Supporters an opportunity to invest their time, effort, skill set and talent. Need help with something; request it. Only Project Creators can create volunteer requests.
Sure thing. We don’t want to leave you hanging. Many have heard of crowdfunding but very few know how to do it well. We can equip you with all the tools so you can be best positioned for success. So, don’t leave your project to chance, we are here to guide you through the process. Get started and launch away.

If you have a mobile phone; chances are you know how to shoot a video clip. It doesn’t have to be fancy. Focus on being engaging and telling your story as succinctly as possible. Here is a great guide to help you: A greate video steals the crowd.
Yes, you can edit the following content after launching:
The only things that cannot be edited after launch are:
Supporters have the option to not receive a reward at all. Some of your supporters likely have chosen this option.
For projects based out of the U.S. supporters can donate via their bank account, or by using a credit/debit card. For international projects supporters can donate via Paypal or by using their credit/debit card.
U.S projects: you'll receive your funds immediately once someone donates. You'll want to make sure that you’ve completed your account set up on WePay so you can transfer those funds into your bank account. We’ll walk you through the steps as you begin the launch process. The amount of money disbursed will be the amount you raise, less our service fee and what WePay charges.
International projects: once your project ends we will send you the funds raised via PayPal within 48hrs. You will need an account to access those funds. The amount of money disbursed will be the amount you raise, less our service fee and what PayPal charges. Keep in mind that there might also be currency exchange with PayPal fees that may apply.
Some project owners may offer unique rewards/incentives as a thank you for supporting them. Each project owner decides what to give away. We’ve seen that those who do offer incentives have a higher likelihood of reaching their funding goal.
You will receive a confirmation email with the details on your contribution. Once the campaign ends the project owner will get in touch with you individually to coordinate the receipt of your reward if you are entitled to one.
Yes, its going to a good cause.
The campaign owners keep the money they raise. If you are unclear as to how those funds will be used, you can contact them directly by posting a note in the "comments" section of their campaign page. We believe that even a little funding can help them in their pursuit of getting their idea off the ground.
The answer is Yes. To support international projects a Paypal account is “not” required. Paypal is simply our payments processor for international projects.
You can actually donate with your credit or debit card as a Guest on PayPal (no PayPal account required!). When you get to the payment page you will see an option to pay as Guest, click there and you'll be able to donate with your credit or debit card.
If the project owner is a 501c-3 nonprofit, the sponsorship can be tax-deductible. But talk to your tax person; they are the experts. That’s as much as we know.
Great; welcome! Any faith based charity organization can use FaithLauncher as well to engage others to help you raise the funds you need. If you need help on how to structure your project, just send us note. We are here to help.
