Back a Project
backHer Supporters Make Projects Possible
People get involved in supporting backHer projects for a variety of reasons. Many want to support the amazing women entrepreneurs, artists, and projects spotlighted on backHer. Others like the idea of being in on the start of new ideas, projects, and businesses. Some are attracted to the “pre-buy” perks that are offered with some campaigns.
Just as important, some people want to support women and girls, and their families who are rising from poverty. backHer donates part of our platform fees to organizations that assist women and girls to gain access to education, health-care, housing, and business skills/start-up help.
