· The "everyghing counts" model: unlike the "all or nothing" crowdfnding model, migranodearena.org is characterized by the "everything counts" model, in which the organization that benefits from a solidarity challenge receives the funds collected, independently of whether the target has been achieved or not. That means that any donation received at migranodearena.org will be transferred to the beneficiary organization.
· Focused on non-profit: migranodearena.org is a specialized tool to help finance projects supported by non-profit organizations: NGOs, foundations, associations or cooperatives. Currently, more than 1,900 NGOs trust us, being the leading platform in the sector.

Sobre retos solidarios
A solidarity challenge is a crowdfunding campaign at migranodearena.org, which is led by a person, group of people or company that raises funds in favor of a non-profit organization. The goal is to help fund projects of the selected organization and for this reason the challenge leader encourages all of his contacts (friends, family, co-workers, etc.) to collaborate with a small (or large!) donation. NGOs, foundations, associations or cooperatives can also create and lead challenges in their own favor.
Any person, group of people, company or non-profit organization (NGO, foundation, association, cooperative) can create and lead a crowdfunding campaign in order to raise funds for a social and solidarity cause.
Only NGOs and non-profit organizations (foundations, associations or cooperatives) legally constituted and registered in Spain can receive donations through migranodearena.org. To be eligible for donations, these organizations must register at migranodearena.org and must provide the required data and documentation in the registration process.
Para líderes de retos
If you want to get involved with an NGO, foundation, association or cooperative, this is your site. Migranodearena.org was born in 2009 as the first crowdfunding platform for charities in our country and we are currently the reference platform in the social sector. We collaborate with over 1,900 non-profit organizations. Migranodearena.org is the platform that allows you to become an ambassador for your cause. In addition, migranodearena.org offers you:
- Personalized attention
- Advice and useful tips in the creation process of your solidarity challenge
- Communication support.
- The platform uses the model "every € counts": which means that each donation reaches the NGO, whether or not the economic objective is reached.
Any person, group of people or company can create and lead a crowdfunding campaign (solidarity challenge) in order to raise funds for a social cause .
There are 4 steps:
1. Register on the web
2. Choose the social cause you want to support
3. Create your challenge: tell your story, add photos and videos (optional) and set the fundraising objective and a time frame.
4. Share your initiative: encourage all your contacts to make a donation (family, friends, colleagues…) in your solidarity challenge.
The economic objective your set, must be realistic and achievable. It is important that before publishing your initiative, you think about the number of people you can involve, and also about the impact of the number of “shares” in social media our can reach. Will you involve your company and your colleagues? Will you talk to the media? Will you ask all your friends to support you? Will you encourage your family to share your initiative with their friends? All these factors are important to achieve the goal. It is better to be conservative in setting the goal, since the psychological factor of moving towards an achievable and reasonable figure increases the donations of the social challenge.
The planning of the timing for launching the initiative and the communication plan are key elements to be successful. If there is a key date for the campaign (sports event date, anniversary, presentation), it is recommended to create the challenge with a month or a month and a half in advance. A solidarity challenge should always have a start and finish date.
It is very important you dedicate effort and energy to share it with your contacts. Today, there are many channels that help us reach our audience: social media, WhatsApp, email, blogs, word of mouth, etc. Migranodearena.org makes it easy: every solidarity challenge already has the buttons to share the challenge. Use them! In addition, informing your donors, keeping them updated, helps to increase donations. For example: announce that you have won the first 500 €, announce when you get 50% of the goal, announce how the training goes if you are preparing for a sportive event, etc. And finally, when the challenge is over, thank your donors for their collaboration.
As a user you have a profile page from which you can access and update the public information about your solidarity challenge/initiative. In your profile you can publish updates, thank the donors, modify or add content, images and videos, as well as modify the end date of your campaign at any time.
In each solidarity challenge you have the button "Share this story". This is where you will find the different tools to share your solidarity challenge:
- You can crete a widget to insert it in other websites / blogs
- Buttons to share on Facebook and Twitter
- The link to share it through email, WhatsApp or Instagram.
Registering and creating a solidarity challenge at migranodearena.org is free. Nevertheless, migranodearena.org applies a fee of 4% of the donations.
