What's in it for Causes

Much needed resources

Every dollar counts when you’re supporting a cause or community and the cost of running a website is ongoing. We want to help you with that. For a minimum of two years, the cost of your website will be covered by a sponsor so you can focus on your mission.

Capacity building

Beyond providing a digital footprint, sponsoring companies can add training to bolster professional skills and competences for your organization. Launch Internet will aim to match sponsors and beneficiaries in complementary ways. Building organizational capabilities is the ultimate goal.

Meaningful partnerships

Sponsors are matched to your cause or community on purpose. We strive to create a long-term partnership that can extend beyond the terms of the sponsorship, including training, knowledge sharing, volunteering, internships – all things that make a beneficial partnership work.

How it works for Causes

Step 1

Complete Application

Explain what you do and how two years will make a difference for your organization. Once approved, Launch Internet will match you with a sponsor. Sponsorship includes two years of domain name registration (or renewals), site hosting, email, and select managed services.

Step 2

Agree to Transparency Terms

Traffic data, donations collected online, and all web related statistics are shared and reported to Launch Internet and the site sponsor within the confines of local and privacy laws. Beneficiaries also agree to the abuse policy and periodic audits.

Step 3

Display Sponsorship Seal on Site

Once a suitable sponsor is assigned, you will receive the funds directly from Launch Internet and are required to post the Launch Seal on your website. Your website is now fully sponsored!

What's in it for Sponsors

Track sponsorship results with hard data

By having beneficiaries share important site data such as traffic and online donation statistics, you can track the progress and the good that your sponsorship is providing to the cause.

Data you can report

The benefits of your donations are often hard to track and report back to internal stakeholders and board members in a meaningful way. With Launch Internet, information is now at your fingertips so that you can create tangible reports with meaningful data to support your investment.

Employee engagement

Sponsors have a choice when selecting a cause that aligns with their mission. Launch Internet’s approach is to foster a long-term partnership between sponsor and beneficiary that encourages engagement with your employees and volunteers. Training, knowledge sharing, volunteering, and internships are just some of the potential benefits that could contribute to capacity building.

How it works for Sponsors

Step 1

Complete Application

Explain what you do and what cause you are looking to sponsor. Once approved, Launch Internet will match you with a cause. Sponsorship includes domain name fees, site hosting, email, and select managed services for two years.

Step 2

Agree to Transparency Terms

Traffic data, donations collected online, and all web related statistics are shared and reported to you within the confines of local and privacy laws. You agree to established abuse policy in using the provided data.

Step 3

Accept Sponsorship Agreement

Once a suitable cause has been accepted by you and assigned, you will provide the funds to Launch Internet to pay for two years of website services starting at $3,000 per year.

About Launch Internet

Launch Internet was developed because founder Thuy LeDinh worked with many small businesses, co-ops, and NGOs in emerging markets operating without a website or poorly designed ones with little resources.  He thought, “These folks really need our help so let’s give it to them!”

The Launch Internet Initiative brings together public, private, and not-for-profit organizations to harness the transformational power of the Internet for sustainable development in a meaningful and tangible way, starting with covering the cost of online presence in exchange for data.  

The opportunity is clear – those who use web technologies grow twice as much as those who don’t; sustainability initiatives can use a dependable, evidence-based approach. We propose a simpler method for companies and NGOs to link up that leverages the power of the world wide web to do good.

In the coming decade, 140 million new jobs will be directly linked to the Internet, such as are software engineers, online marketers, database administrators, data analysts and scientists, digital advertisers, bloggers, social media experts, and security managers.    

Looking ahead, beyond providing a digital footprint, sponsoring companies can add training to bolster professional skills and competences for the organization. Launch Internet will aim to match sponsors and beneficiaries in complementary ways so that the ability to build organizational capabilities is the primary focus.
