CGTrader Sets Fundraising Campaign in Motion in Support of Ukraine

To contribute to the humanitarian efforts in aid of Ukraine, CGTrader is launching fundraising initiatives across its business.

Aimed at generating donations, we now have a special two-week marketplace sale with discounts up to 70%.

Half of the proceeds generated from the "Support Ukraine 3D Model Sale" will be donated to UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency. We are also giving our sellers the option to donate a percentage of their royalties to the same charity as well.

  • To participate as a seller, go to My Sales and select the Donations tab. Sellers can then choose the percentage of royalties to be donated as well as the time period when the donation process will be active.
  • To participate as a buyer, look out for the percentage sign badge that distinguishes the designers who are taking part in the donation process. Models marked with a Ukrainian flag badge mean that the designer is from Ukraine, giving our customers another way to show their support.

In addition to this fundraising effort, CGTrader has decided to completely restrict marketplace designers from Russia and Belarus. Read the full announcement here. However, models by designers from that region that have chosen to donate 100% of their royalties will not be restricted.

If you would like to support the cause, visit the CGTrader website before the sale ends on April 7th, 2022.

I decided to donate 100% to Ukraine, thanks for this opportunity. My relatives are there. But I still think that it is not fair to do such things to Russian and Belorussian artists. I hope, that eventually, you'll see that it was wrong. PS It works in a strange way, some times I can't see the field where to chose this option(may be bad connection). Now it says that I am in, but models are still restricted.

Thank you for the chance to help Ukrainian people! I am sorry for all pain for Ukraine from my country and want to help at least with money from sales...I really appreciate CGTraider for this possibility! And I hope that many designers will use this chance to help Ukrainian refugees without any resentment and aggression in this difficult times! Let's do this together!

Thanks to cgtrader team for revealing your true nationalist and rusophobic nature. Thanks for fighting against ordinary people from Russia and Belarus who can't do a thing in current situation. I'd better download all my purchased models and leave your platform forever - there are better alternatives, like cults3d. Wish you stop being such a trash.

Внимание! Такие донаты подпадают под уголовную ответственность в России и Беларуси! Власти это расценят как помощь вражескому государству! Будьте осторожны. Attention! Such donations are subject to criminal liability in Russia and Belarus! The authorities will regard this as helping an enemy state! Be careful.

Никакой уголовной ответственности за такие донаты нет. Это помощь ООН для беженцев и гуманитарных кризисов, это помощь не для военных а для мирных граждан оказавшихся в сложных ситуациях. There is no criminal liability for such donations. This is UN aid for refugees and humanitarian crises, this is aid not for the military, but for civilians in difficult situations.

Как всегда страдают от сайта люди испытывающие эмпатию и сострадание, а пропутинские просто проходят мимо и их это никак не задевает. Поставлю пожертвование, но как только это все закончится свалю с этого конченного ресурса.

Как всегда от действий сайта страдают только те люди, которые испытывают к украинцам эмпатию и сострадание, а пропутинские просто проходят мимо. Я конечно поставлю пожертвование 100%, но как только закончится это все свалю с этого конченного ресурса и не то, что никогда его не порекомендую, потрачу все силы на то, чтобы отговорить всех моих знакомых им пользоваться. Спасибо.
