Kickstarter


Best Review 10057

Kickstarter is much like gofundme, except that they seem to lean towards the arts and technology. They are an easy to navigate site for your fundraising projects. However, they do not allow personal fundraising, but only creative projects and ventures. Kickstarter raised $444 million in 2014. The fees are 3-5% per donation.

CrowdFunder

Crowdfunder is run much the same as the others with one major difference. On this site, investors can fund your startup business and they have the option to become shareholders. This site is not meant for individual fundraising. It is geared toward entrepreneurs who are starting up their own businesses.

RocketHub-

Yet another site for almost anyone with a cause. Whether you're raising money for the greater good or for a personal endeavor, you can do it here. There's a lot of campaigns here for the arts and social causes, as well as for business startups.

Most campaigns run for a preset amount of time, say 3 months. Once you set up your campaign, it's up to you to use your social media accounts to spread the word about your project. Hopefully, as friends and family begin donating, they'll share your cause with their followers and so on. You should market your cause to raise as much interest in it as possible.
