September 13, 2018 – Lexington, NC – PlentiFund is a new niche crowdfunding platform serving community college students nationwide to help them raise funds for transportation to school. The company currently focuses on fuel costs for students driving to school each week. Research shows that transportation costs can be challenging for students. PlentiFund’s services run throughout the college fall and spring semesters. There are many students who go to college part time and work part time or full time jobs. Those jobs can interfere with a student’s ability to focus on getting their college degree.
“If transportation costs are deterring individuals from going to college we want to help eliminate that obstacle,” says Richard Serge, the creator of PlentiFund.
Crowdfunding is a process where individuals request funding from a population or “crowd”. In this case PlentiFund has developed an online platform where community college students can create a profile and request funding assistance to help with transportation costs. After a student receives funding they are advised to use the funds to obtain a fuel card from a fuel provider of their choice. The funds are scheduled to be released to the student each month to help support the student when they need it the most. The platform includes a blog about life skills, as well as social media links to help students share their request with their network. Plentifund uses the Stripe payment processing system to process the funds given to students. There is a FAQs page to help student setup their profile. The platform is simple to use: create a profile describing your background and future goals. Then promote the profile.
In a recent year statistics have shown over $6 billion was given to individuals. Also, giving to education in a recent year was nearly $56 billion. So if people and entities are willing to give to those categories we feel that many will feel encouraged to help students directly. We feel that there are enough supporters in the community that we can help make a significant impact on college admissions and obtaining a degree.
PlentiFund is a new niche crowdfunding company and as such we invite new investor, academic, business and media relationships in our efforts to help the student population. We welcome investor and media inquiries to help elevate our startup process.
