Axcil Jefferies crowd funding using Go Fund Me, Telecash and EcoCash


Zimababwe’s motor racing sensation and formula one hopeful Axcil Jefferies has now turned to crowdfunding to raise funding for him to take part in the 2014 GP2 Series. Jefferies has listed on personal crowd funding website Go Fund Me (campaign now offline) seeking to raise 1.3 million pounds (US $2,151,143.19) and if successful, it will take him one step closer to achieving his dream to participate in the in the Formula 1 circuit.

Jefferies has relied heavily on corporate sponsorship to kick start his motor sport career. From humble beginnings with Go Carts, companies like Air Zimbabwe and Pioneer have backed Jefferies but supplies seem to have dried out just as he is about to get closer to his dream of competing in Formula 1.


In about 24 hours since listing, Jefferies has raised £380 from 8 people on Go Fund Me. Because Go Fund Me has payment hurdles for people in Zimbabwe (Visa, PayPal, etc), Jefferies has also added options for people to donate via EcoCash and Telecash.


The highest amount ever raised on Go Fund Me is $804 500 and Jefferies’ $2 million target is amongst the biggest targets ever set on the platform.
