A CDE Definition
A crowdfunding website for small and large creative projects in more than a dozen categories. Launched in 2009, Kickstarter is "all or nothing." If the monetary goal is reached by a certain date, all credit cards are charged; otherwise, the fundraiser is cancelled. As of 2018, more than 125,000 projects were fully funded, while approximately 170,000 were not. For more information, visit www.kickstarter.com. See crowdfunding.
Online fund raising. Crowdfunding over the Internet reaches a huge audience, and billions are raised each year by this method for both small and large projects. For social causes, many more people may donate a couple of dollars to support something they like rather than give $100, $50 or even $25. See Kickstarter and Indiegogo.
