First Projects on Stadtwerke Langen’s New Crowdfunding Platform Were Successful

Stadtwerke Langen’s crowdfunding platform achieved its first project’s fundraising goal ahead of schedule, signaling success for the initiative. The platform offers straightforward involvement for charitable projects in various sectors. The volleyball department of SSG Langen reached its target for modernizing its facility. Other projects, including funding a prom and Kids Leisure 2024, are seeking support.




The first project placed on Stadtwerke Langen’s new crowdfunding platform reached its fundraising goal three weeks before the deadline. Two other projects are now asking for support. “This shows that we have taken the right path with this modern type of sponsorship,” said the managing director of the municipal utility, Uwe Linder.

Being involved is very simple: If you want to implement a charitable project with your club or initiative but do not have sufficient financial resources, set up a project page on the crowdfunding platform . Then it’s important to ask for support from friends, fans, acquaintances and companies. For every donation of ten euros or more, the utility company adds another ten euros from the funding pot. This applies until the pot is empty. The first ten projects will also receive start-up funding from the municipal utilities.

How a project can be started is explained in an easy-to-understand manner on the crowdfunding platform. The project consultants from the municipal utility partner FairPlaid are also happy to help personally with every step of the campaign. Projects in the areas of culture, social affairs, education, the environment and sport that pursue a charitable purpose are supported. Project starters can be clubs, organizations, initiatives and private individuals. Political projects are excluded.

The SSG Langen volleyball department was the first to start

The fundraising goal was 5,000 euros for the modernization of their beach volleyball facility in the An der Rechten Wiese leisure center. More than 70 supporters raised the money needed. The municipal utilities gave 700 euros from the funding pot as well as a 200 euros starter bonus. And with that the goal was achieved, modernization was secured.

The current graduating class from the Dreieichschule Langen started in second place with the request “Help us finance our prom!”. This requires 3,500 euros. The organizers of the Kids Leisure 2024 at the Free Evangelical Community of Langen hope to raise 2,500 euros. You can read in detail exactly what the money is being collected for on the respective project page of the Together Crowd.

It’s all or nothing: the money collected will only be paid out when the required amount is raised within the promotional period. Otherwise, all supporters will receive their money back.

“As a sponsor of numerous clubs and cultural institutions in Langen and Egelsbach, we have been making a significant contribution to the high quality of life of the people in our business area for many years,” explained Uwe Linder.

“With the Together Crowd, we have created an additional instrument with which clubs, institutions and organizations from Langen and Egelsbach can benefit all year round. It is important for us to show our colors and make it clear to citizens that we are always firmly at their side, and not just as a local utility company. “Together” is not just a catchphrase for us, but a matter of course.”
