Two of the largest crowdfunding platforms on the market, Kickstarter and Indiegogo, recently took steps to reinforce a similar belief in the community aspects of crowdfunding. Kickstarter recently established themselves as a Public Benefit Corporation, a for-profit company that is obligated to consider the impact of their decisions on society, not only shareholders. Positive impact on society becomes part of a Benefit Corporation’s legally defined goals. Meanwhile, Indiegogo recently rebranded their cause-based crowdfunding arm into a new website called “Generosity” which helps socially minded fundraising causes raise money and takes no fees.
We’ve always felt strongly about the community aspects of crowdfunding. There is nothing else like it- makers, dreamers, and civic-minded individuals all coming together to help one another grow, prosper, and succeed. In that same spirit, we are pleased to announce the launch of our new service- PLEDGE. We’ve always felt strongly about the community aspects of crowdfunding. There is nothing else like it- makers, dreamers, and civic-minded individuals all coming together to help one another grow, prosper, and succeed.
We’ve been thinking for a long time about how we can back in our own way and that’s why we are proud to share this project simply called Pledge. For those causes that are serious about impacting real change in the world and need an extra push to get the word out we want to help.
