For nonprofit organizations and social entrepreneurs crowdfunding has become the next frontier of fundraising efforts. There are a plethora of crowdfunding sites now, all of which basically allow your nonprofit to set up online fundraising campaigns and accept money through the web. Some of the sites also allow supporters to set up pages on behalf of charities they want to support. With annual crowdfunding donations growing from millions of dollars to billions of dollars, the time is ripe for your organization to explore this powerful new platform.

    Thanks for the great summary of these crowdfunding initiatives! I’ve heard about may organizations having success with several of them. Another crowdfunding subset worth researching and evaluating is “event-based crowdfunding”. For example, our nonprofit, Brackets For Good (http://www.bracketsforgood.org), based in Indianapolis, IN specializes in hosting an annual crowdfunding event, which is unique to any of these listed. I would be happy to provide additional information if requested at any point in-time, and thanks again for the information.
