    CROWDFUNDING ON OUR PLATFORM

    Explanation

    At Swordfight USA, our dedication to advancing Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) drives us to seek the most efficient and impactful paths forward. This is why we've made the deliberate choice to host our crowdfunding campaign directly on our platform, rather than relying on external platforms like Indiegogo or GoFundMe.

    Swordfight USA's platform is tailor-made for the HEMA community, designed to streamline the crowdfunding process for our unique needs. By crowdfunding directly, we're not just generating financial support; we're harnessing the power of our community for swift, efficient, and impactful change.

    Join us in making HEMA's evolution a reality through direct action and immediate impact.

    Speed

    Our primary motivation is speed. We understand that swift action leads to real change. By utilizing our platform, we eliminate the wait times associated with external processes. This allows us to promptly gather the resources needed to drive our initiatives forward. Time is of the essence, and by crowdfunding directly, we can maximize the momentum of our community's support.

    Platform Fees

    Another crucial consideration is minimizing platform fees. External crowdfunding platforms often come with transaction and service charges that can eat into the funds intended for our projects. By utilizing our own platform, we can ensure that a larger portion of the funds raised directly contribute to our mission. This financial efficiency allows us to allocate resources more effectively and create a more significant impact.

    Access to Funds

    Hosting our campaign on our platform grants us immediate access to the funds raised. External platforms may have delays in transferring funds, which could hinder our ability to swiftly implement projects. By having direct access to the funds, we can start executing our initiatives without unnecessary waiting periods, ensuring that your support leads to tangible results without delay.

    Building a Strong HEMA Community

    At Swordfight USA, we believe in fostering a united and thriving HEMA community. By supporting our campaign, you are not only helping us acquire the necessary mats but also contributing to the growth and development of HEMA as a sport. Our vision extends beyond a single event—these mats will become an enduring asset, benefiting HEMA tournaments for years to come. Together, we can create an environment where practitioners can showcase their skills, connect with fellow enthusiasts, and advance the sport they love.
