What is Fortua

 

What is Fortua?

Fortua makes it easier to raise funds and access resources for outdoor, adventure, and active lifestyle pursuits and projects. We've been called the Outside Magazine, North Face, National Geographic, and Patagonia of crowdfunding, and we think that is a good start for describing who we are and what we believe in.

Here's how Fortua works: Campaign creators run campaigns on Fortua to make their endeavors happen. Backers support campaign creators by making financial or non-financial (e.g. gear, supplies, expertise, volunteer time) contributions to their campaigns. In exchange for support, campaign creators share their experiences and insights with backers as their endeavor unfolds, and they also thank their backers with rewards (or perks) at the end of their endeavor.
Fortua supports innovation.

We help the outdoor, adventure, and active lifestyle community develop new and innovative products and solutions – this includes gear, equipment, technology, clothing, footwear, and more. If you have a new, breakthrough, or make-it-better idea, Fortua is here to help!

Fortua supports adventure, exploration, discovery, and storytelling.

We are committed to helping filmmakers, photographers, and writers bring outdoor, adventure, and active lifestyle stories to life.

Fortua supports dreams. Everyone has dreams. We want to help you make your dream a reality.

If you are an individual training to run your first marathon; an event director putting together a local triathlon; a group of mountain bikers developing a downhill flow trail; a neighborhood creating a community garden; a documentary filmmaker creating a film on big wave surfing; an engineer developing a more protective snowboarding helmet; an entrepreneur developing a new clean technology; a team launching an expedition to study space, or anything in between, if it involves raising funds and accessing resources to make an outdoor, adventure, or active lifestyle pursuit or project a reality, then Fortua is the platform for you!

Fortua supports anytime anywhere fundraising for the charitable causes that you believe in. Why wait for an organized athletic charity event when you can do it yourself anytime and anywhere with Fortua! All you need to do is create a campaign page, direct funds to the charity you are supporting, and get out there and do what you love to do on behalf of the charity. You’ll be raising funds and making a difference in no time!
Fortua campaign creators seek support from backers to help make their pursuits or projects happen.

Campaigns can be run to support an entire pursuit or project or a discrete component (e.g. equipment, airfare, etc.) of a pursuit or project.

Backers receive insights and updates from campaign creators as their pursuits or projects unfold.

If you back a Fortua pursuit or project, you can expect written, photo, or video updates from campaign creators as their endeavors unfold. We call this front row access.


Backers also receive rewards from campaign creators at the end of their pursuit or project.

In exchange for support, campaign creators send backers rewards at the end of their pursuit or project. We call this a thank you perk.

Fortua also supports pursuits and projects that promote sustainability, responsible use of natural resources, healthy communities, and a healthy planet.
One percent of Fortua's revenue is donated annually to 1% for the Planet to protect natural places, forests, rivers, lakes, oceans, and wildlife for generations to come.
