Why Crowdfunding?

Greetings to all our readers. Till now, Fact Hunt was bootstrapped and were funded by its founders. But now we need to expand our operation if we want to catch up with others in the industry. Today, we have only one full time fact-checkers and we will have to add two more in next 6 months to achieve our targets. For all this, we need funds.

As you all are aware, IFCN has unfairely rejected our application which has closed various doors for us to get any kind of grants to keep the website running.

From here, we have two ways. Either we raise fund from investors and lose control over the functioning of the organisation or we ask our readers to support us in our decision to remain independent.

This is why we need your support to keep the Fact Hunt's project up and running.
