Though you may not have thought of it as crowdfunding, you’ve probably seen fundraisers on Facebook for different causes or products. Although crowdfunding can be used for a lot of things, simply put, it means collecting small amounts of money from a large number of people using an online fundraiser promoted through social media. It can be used to support a product, service, or cause. Common crowdfunding platforms you may have seen are Kickstarter and GoFundMe.
Crowdfunding is collecting small amounts of money from a large number of people using an online fundraiser promoted through social media.
One thing to understand about crowdfunding is that it’s becoming very popular, especially for donation-based or cause-based fundraising. This type of crowdfunding helps people with medical expenses, mission trips, or other personal causes. In 2015, the crowdfunding industry raised $34.4 billion (up from $16.1 billion in 2014 and $6.1 billion in 2013) with strong growth in the donation-based fundraising segment (source: Massolutions).
