This Place Matters Competition

THIS PLACE MATTERS is not your average crowdfunding platform. It is designed with historic places and the dedicated organizations that care for them in mind. Communities compete for cash prizes and use this site to raise money for their historic place. Every dollar raised by communities, they keep. In this way, every project is a winner!
