We are thrilled to share with you that the first Citizinvestor project in the City of Boston has been funded!
In just 55 days, 47 Citizinvestors stepped up to the plate to donate $6,480 to put iPads and other technology in the hands of 10 blind students in Boston. If you’ve seen this video from one of the students who has gone through the program in the past, you know why these Citizinvestors invested in this worthy cause:
This is a huge milestone for Citizinvestor and the movement for crowdfunding local government and civic projects. Having only launched our pilot program in Philadelphia and Boston less than three months ago, citizens have already proven that they will fund the civic projects they care about most.
We can’t wait to see what projects citizens will fund next in Philadelphia, Boston and other cities across the United States!
