We successfully met our $100k matching challenge. Kat Taylor (Beneficial State Bank), Derek Hydon (MaCher), and Merlin Clarke (Dogeared) challenged us to raise $100k by last Friday. Again, thanks to our supporters, we met that goal and then some.
MaCher has put up ANOTHER $25k in matching funds. To keep the momentum rolling, the amazing folks at MaCher have put up ANOTHER $25k in matching funds for anyone who invests between now and November 7. Incredible.
We’ve got some really cool investors. Our investors include some of the most socially and environmentally conscious women on the planet, including (to only name a few):
Leslie Christian, former President & CEO of Portfolio 21
Kristin Hull, President & Co-Founder of Nia Global Solutions
Jodie Evans, Co-Founder of CODEPINK
Nikishka Iyengar, Founder of The Guild
Marian Moore, Senior Advisor at RSF Social Finance
Julia Sze, Managing Director of Impact Investing at Arabella Advisors
Justina Lai, Director of Impact Investing at Wetherby Asset Management
Trish Rogers, Chair of the Business Section at Moye White LLP
Request for Support: Here are two things we would like to request from you:
1. Do you know anyone who would be willing to add to our new matching challenge? We would love to be able to offer $50k-$100k in matching funds. These campaigns really work to drive investment.
2. Will you share the Force for Good Fund via social media and with your friends and colleagues? Here are two sample tweets you could use:

Wefunder supports three different federal laws that allow startups to raise money legally. To comply with the law, Wefunder Advisors LLC and Wefunder Portal LLC (both owned by Wefunder Inc) also list startups depending on the regulation used.
Legal May 16th 2016
Wefunder Portal LLC
for 314 startups
Wefunder Advisors LLC
for 105 startups
for 3 startups
Curious how well the companies have done? Or how many raised follow-on financing?
Some fine print: 1) These numbers include startups currently live on Wefunder if they pass their minimum target. 2) Some startups use two different laws at the same time (i.e., Regulation D and Regulation Crowdfunding).
