We’re excited to announce CiviliNation’s partnership with Pro Dono and are pleased to be its 100th charity. Jimmy Wales, founder of the Wikimedia Foundation and Pro Dono Ambassador, will be raising money for CiviliNation.
Pro Dono offers a novel and fun way to raise funds, and we’re honored to have been selected among the esteemed organizations featured on the site.
How does it work? Pro Dono acts as a broker to organize meeting-of-mind experiences between donors and public ﬁgures in aid of charity. Donors can meet prominent and famous people of their choice, with the donation going to the individual’s chosen charity. This provides the donor with a unique experience and the accompanying feel-good factor of doing good. A donation might allow someone to go to dinner or attend a cultural event with their hero, and know they’ve benefited a charity at the same time. Pro Dono, itself a non-profit organization, keeps just 7p in £1 to cover running costs.
