Here’s how to apply


To join Milkywire with your organization, you have to go through our qualitative screening process, where we assess if your organization is suited for our platform. These are the steps for an application:

Step 1: Register your interest


All organizations that want to fundraise on the Milkywire platform has to register to our impacter portal, where we collect information on the organizational structure and capacity. To start the process, fill out our registration form to get a login. Only eligible nonprofits working with environment/climate are granted login credentials.

Check eligibility

Step 2: Complete your profile


If granted a login, you will be asked to report organizational information along with key documents including your annual report, financial statement, statutes and minutes from the last annual meeting. This information will form the basis of our assessment, and incomplete applications will not be assessed and able to fundraise. A member of our Impact management team will conduct a video interview with you to complement your submitted information and to get to know you and your organization better.

Step 3: Funding proposal


If approved, you will need to submit a funding proposal through the portal which will work as the basis for your fundraising on the platform as well as a way to display the work you carry out.

Step 4: Approval


Once your application has been approved you will receive a written confirmation. Following that, we sign a contract outlining the details for the cooperation between your organization and Milkywire. Lastly, you will be appointed a contact person from the Impact management and relations team who will help onboarding you onto the platform.
