A Crowd funding Site for Filipino Projects

Official PayPal Seal

PhilAmTHropy (PATH) is a crowd funding site for projects made for or made by Filipinos. We coined the name “PhilAmTHropy” by combining the word “philanthropy” (love of humanity) with “PhilAm,” our abbreviation of “Philippine Ambassadors”.

What is Crowd funding?

Crowd funding is a new way to get as many people as possible to support projects by contributing small amount of money to the project via the internet. Together, we can get more innovative projects done sooner if we all chip in. It’s a new kind of People Power!

Most people probably don’t know that Filipinos have been behind some remarkable inventions: the lunar buggy, the sing-along machine (karaoke) and the reinvention of the yo-yo, to name a few. Despite this history of innovation, there are many more incredible Filipino projects that do not make it to production due to limited funding. Filipinos are bursting with talent and we hope you agree that we need our own crowd funding site.

According to the World Bank, there are 11 million Filipinos working overseas making the Philippines the third largest recipient of money remittance (estimated at $24 billion) in the world. The United States is the biggest source of remittance. Since 2013, Filipinos are considered the largest Asian population in California and the largest ethnic group in Hawaii. Through PhilAmTHropy (PATH), we hope to provide a community that will encourage and support Filipino creativity. PATH believes that philanthropy is not quite the same as charity. Charity is usually associated with writing checks, whereas philanthropy is providing someone with the tools on “how to fish”. We hope to give you the nudge you need to take that first step towards following your path, and inspire a community to support you. We may be living in different time zones across the world, but technology has made it easier than ever to stay connected. Let us set the bar high. It’s time to let the world know what Filipinos are truly made of. Wherever you may be, we want you to know that we are here, cheering you on. It’s time to SHINE!

There are two sides to crowd funding:

The project creator (Philippine Ambassador) who has the talent and capability to implement an idea; and the “crowd” of project supporters (PhilAmTHropists) who want to make it happen.

Mission

To crowd fund meaningful projects made for or made by Filipinos. Quality over quantity. We believe in the power of community. Your project does not get lost in translation. We get it.

*PhilAmTHropy is SSL certified and PayPal Verified, adding another layer of security while you are on our website.

 

Vision

Whenever possible, we will do whatever we can to help promote your project. We want you to continue to receive support from the global community even after your campaign has ended. We want to encourage more inventions.

Our Approach

We are only successful when you are. Being based in California allows us to reach out to the Filipino American community. We will try to link you up with people who can support your project, even after your campaign has ended. We don’t want a one hit wonder, we want you to thrive and to keep on going.
