It works well for most projects, but it has to connect with people (which goes back to the importance of your message). You have to show to your supporters why investing in your project is a good idea (the same as you would for any grant application).
The most inspiring projects we came across in the research were examples of quite small community groups raising money for specific services or bits of equipment or one-off events that captured people’s imagination. Some of these projects came about because the groups talked to existing supporters or their community and identified a need, but there was no money to fund the meeting of this need, so they turned to crowdfunding.
Has anyone here in the discussion tried Crowdfunding themselves?
