I found this Crowdfunding article by Andre Bourque (SocialMkgtFella) and just had to share it. Have a read!
… “crowd-funding platforms allow nonprofits to set up an online fundraising campaign through a dedicated fundraising page. Social media marketing, newsletters, blogs, press, and word-of-mouth all channel donors to this single, simplified location. Nonprofits then accept direct contributions via credit card and sometimes other payment methods”.
