I recently found a crowdfunding campaign website called GoFundMe.com. Unlike crowdfunding campaign sites like Kickstarter and IndieGogo – sites that host your project and require you offer rewards to project backers, GoFundMe is perfect for projects that need help but can’t offer rewards, or ongoing projects that offer no reward other than a happy conscious.


In 2012 I ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund the completion of my thesis film ‘My Big Bad Wolf‘ (2013), and offered rewards such as art prints, DVD copies, and more. However, there are some projects, such as service websites, business ventures or even personal projects, that could benefit from your donations, but can’t offer direct rewards to individual backers.

I may be using this in the future…
