What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

For the past 8 or 9 years our website has been funded by the owner. Sadly the owner can no longer support the site as they have in the past. We do not charge for the use of the website but have reluctantly decided to ask users or supporters for the occasional donation to help offset costs for hosting and maintenance. The website volunteers have given many hours of their time adding information to the site for all who wish to use it and we do not want to abandon the site after so much hard work has been put into it. We think we will need to raise in the region of £500 initially to take over the site and maintain it in the first year of new management. Within the first two weeks of this fund opening we hit our target of £500 - we have decided to keep the fund open for the year so that we can build a backup emergency fund and to develop the site in the future if need be.

    I don't know what I would have done without the Wilts OPC, it's made researching my maternal grandfather's family so much easier! Thank you.

We are the Wiltshire OPC Project and for the past 8-10 years we have ran a free to use genealogy web site. Sadly the owner of the site can no longer maintain and fund the website so we are looking to keep it going with public donation to assist those who are willing to fund it
