I think this idea is interesting but I'm unconvinced of the form you've chosen. As I've understood it seems to involve quite a lot of vetting and EA time before projects reach it to stage where they can ask people for funding. What's your objection to having an EA equivalent of GoFundMe/Kickstarter where people can just uploads their projects and then ask for funding. I imagine this could also work on the system that projects are time-limited and if they don't receive the funding they seek all the money gets returned to potential donors.

I think you mean "unconvinced"?
