Playfora & Sila

Supporting Peer-to-Nonprofit Donations Through Sila’s Secure Bank Account Linking API

The Goal

Develop an Easy-to-use and Fully Compliant Banking App for Simple Non-profit Donations and Secure Funds Holding

Playfora is an accessible crowdfunding app that securely stores funds and donates to nonprofits on behalf of everyday users. Founded in 2020, Playfora makes it easier to give to the charity of your choice as part of a preexisting event. An app that is capable of letting anyone incorporate charitable giving into everyday actions and events.

Playfora's ultimate goal is for users to have fun in daily experiences while simultaneously making a difference. With the Playfora app, you can attend a #CauseParty or participate in a purpose-driven fantasy sports league to enjoy both philanthropy and fun.

Automated donations to the charity of your choice is Playfora’s primary goal. The app makes giving donations non-intrusive and automatic. No longer would you need to initiate a donation and figure out how to pool the money and connect with the charity. Playfora is that stepping stone.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

We firmly believe that each of us has the intrinsic dedication and power to change the world, and together, we can be unstoppable. Our goal is to empower change by making it easier for everyone to create new ways to give

The Results

The need for Playfora arose when CEO and founder Jeff Spencer saw the real-world issues with donations in nonprofits. Spencer saw a market for normal people who are regularly running social events to easily donate a portion of their earnings to nonprofits.

The idea for Playfora was born, but Spencer soon realized that in order to gain access to this technology, he needed to navigate the rules and regulations that go along with it.
