How to make proposals to the Community Funding DAO

Right, anything that can get the support of ANT holders is eligible. Without commenting on the specific idea being proposed here (that discussion is better suited for its own thread) I would also not support a proposal that took up ~half of the DAO’s quarterly budget unless there was an out-sized ROI potential.

Is there a process similar to this on the forum for projects that may cost too much to fit within the 12,500 DAI budget for the CFDAO? Is it worth creating a #nest tag for projects that are seeking community feedback before formally applying to Nest? Thanks!

@pcowgill just saw this, sorry for the delay. Nest is the closest thing, and there isn’t a tag for that but you are welcome to start one. If you have questions about the Nest process at all including when is the best time to create an issue in the Nest repo @LouisGrx can help with this.


Hey @pcowgill,
Sorry for the delay indeed!
You can very well create a forum thread asking for feedback from the community. However, note that Nest grants are distributed at the discretion of the Aragon Association (and not voted by the community). So another option is to directly submit your proposal in the issue tab of the Nest repository. That’s where the AA will review it and provide you feedback to move forward or close it. Hope I answered some of your questions


I went ahead and created votes to upgrade the voting, vault, and finance apps in the community funding DAO for the 0.7 release. I figured I would post here so if anyone watching the org notices the votes they will have context.


At @burrrata’s suggestion, this topic has been pinned in a new Community Funding DAO subcategory.


Not sure if this only requires the efforts of one person, but I would love to help out.

I like the idea for the Aragon Coop DAO. I’ve done extensive research on cooperatives (non-crypto), DAOs, tokenized incentives, proper valuation of work, etc. I have a step-brother who manages a large successful cooperative in the US. Been in crypto since 2014, mostly in fundraising and advising roles.

Let me know if you need assistance. Cheers.


Are you saying here that you would like to help teams/projects in the community building CFDAO projects, that you’d like to help create and/or organize DAO designs and templates for various use cases, or something else entirely? Asking because there’s opportunities for all that and more, but not sure what your interests are :slight_smile:

Everything you mentioned above sounds interesting to me!

I am relatively new here and not familiar with the way things are done or the culture. So maybe I should just offer my skills wherever needed. No brain surgery for now. :sweat_smile:

Awesome! :slight_smile:

Currently there’s no easy way to get involved with CFDAO stuff, but we’d like to change that! A few ways to contribute:

  • help organize the current CFDAO projects (cat herding)
  • help design a harder, better, faster, stronger CFDAO (in progress)
  • find a CFDAO team working on something you’re really excited about and ask them how you can help (the 1Hive CFDAO team working on Conviction Voting has a lot of open Issues that could use some love)

Regarding engaging with the broader Aragon ecosystem as large… that’s also complicated. Currently there’s a big gap between community contributors and full time contributors. We’d like to help make the process of learning about and contributing to Aragon more organic. This is what the CFDAO, CRDAO, and Working Groups are for.

Speaking of the CRDAO, you’re nominated! Congratulations and welcome to the Aragon community :cowboy_hat_face:

Regarding Working Groups, there’s a bunch of them. Some are more organized than others, but they all need your help.

  • If you’re into helping teams realize their cool ideas, the NestDAO WG and/or the CFDAO WG might be a good fit. The NestDAO WG is currently only for members, but there’s an application thread here. CFDAO WG does not exist yet, but we could start it to explore ideas on how to make it easier for people to go from idea => cool thing.
  • If you’re into thinking and research, the StrategyWG might be a good fit. The current focus is on stakeholder research to better understand the sentiments and needs of Aragon developers, users, and investors. Lots of talking to users and writing reports.
  • If you’d like to be a user and provide product teams feedback, the UserFeedbackWG might be a good fit. It’s kind of on the back burner right now, but if you wanted to get involved there’s lots of apps coming down the pipeline that will need user testing ASAP.

Beyond all that, there’s lots of random stuff here on the forum that you can weigh in on. Also there’s lots of teams like 1Hive that are set up to welcome contributors and make it easy to get involved.

EDIT: there’s probably a bunch of stuff I’m forgetting here too. @LouisGrx as our resident expert on Aragon stakeholder engagement, how else might one get involved and contribute to the Aragon universe?

Hey hey,

Think that your walkthrough was nice and comprehensive @burrrata :slight_smile:

The UserFeedbackWG could be a great first step @Amazongirl. Very curious to understand what could help you get familiar with Aragon more quickly! If you feel like it, jump into the chat to share your early experience navigating Aragon products or ecosystem (forum, website…) :wink:

@light @burrrata I have updated the first post in the thread based on your comments. Sorry for the delay.


Guys, i have updated the post about DAO Mayuyaland. I wish to have a finance of 30000 DAI. If you consider it’s too much for a DAO to get financed. We can accept suggestions and make another request with a 7000 DAI wich is primary needed.

Also, i have tried to make a vote request, but i doubted to have permissions to perform it there…

Edit. I have created a vote campaign

Notice to CFDAO users
The first post on this thread has been updated by the Aragon Association with a new requirement. Since the Aragon Association is funding the CFDAO, for accounting reasons an invoice billed to the Aragon Association is now required on all CFDAO proposals. Failing to include a completed invoice will result in the AA voting “no” on the proposal. Repeated failures could result in temporary restriction of funding for the CFDAO, so please play nice :slight_smile: In the near future, Aragon Court will be used to ensure compliance with this requirement.

If you have any questions about this, please tag or direct message @joeycharlesworth, who runs operations at the AA.

I want to @joeycharlesworth share appreciations about how must the invoice should be written in case of missunderstandings

I did appointed the template in tree aspects to receive a clear explanation

  1. All here is clear but in case of payments is on ETH or ANT ¿Should i put the address of the wallet associated with the DAO?
  2. What number of the invoice could put in this section?
  3. If all items must have the link of the topic or all items must have the link to all specific things. And finally if VAT must be 7.7% as mandatory.

Please answer and share your views in order to let people being playing nicer and avoiding mistakes.

An Ethereum address that can receive ERC-20 tokens from contracts (for example: a Metamask account) would be the easiest way to do this.

If this is the first invoice that you are sending to the Aragon Association, then 1. The number of the invoice shall be 1 and 1 shall be the number of the invoice. Not 2, not 3, but 1 - assuming this is your first invoice to the AA.

VAT is there in case it is applicable to you. If it is not, please feel free to ignore that section.

In regards to how to deliver the invoice to the Aragon Association: the AA only needs an invoice after your proposal has been created, but before the vote passes. I’ve sent you a DM with my email. Once your invoice is filled out you can email me the invoice and we’ll be good to go.

I apologize for the confusion around this new change. If you have any other questions, comments, or concerns please feel free to reach out to me directly (via an @ mention or DM). Otherwise, best of luck with your proposal.
