Crowdfunding – the practice of funding a project or venture by raising small amounts of money from a large number of people, typically via the Internet – is becoming increasingly popular. Kickstarter is a well-known example, but there are a variety of other sites listed at the first two sources below that are specifically geared toward social-cause entrepreneurs and that can help you earn funding for your cause. For example, “Start Some Good http://startsomegood.com/ is a site for social entrepreneurs to gather a community and raise the funds needed to create change. Its goal is to be the best platform for social entrepreneurs to launch and grow the innovative ventures needed to improve communities and the world.” An additional crowdfunding platform is Pubslush, which is Kickstarter for book projects.
