RAISES MONEY QUICKLY
Crowdfunding is one of the quickest ways for individuals to raise money for a project, need, or cause. When promoted correctly via social media, email, and word of mouth, a crowdfunding campaign has the potential to reach hundreds, if not thousands, of people.
Some campaigns even go viral and vastly exceed their goals! Of course, a crowdfunding fundraiser will only be successful if the campaign creator actively encourages members of their networks to donate to the campaign.
Crowdfunding campaigns that seek to raise money for a specific cause can help shine light on that particular problem or issue. For example, someone who’s raising funds for a rare illness can use a campaign to educate people about that condition and raise awareness about its treatments & symptoms.
The same scenario can occur for crowdfunding pages that highlight social, economic, or political injustices. Campaign creators can not only raise money, but they can also educate their peers about the issue they are crowdfunding for.
BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER
Crowdfunding brings people and communities closer together and unites them under a common cause. Individuals and communities can band together to help a friend, family member, or coworker who needs assistance with various expenses by contributing to a crowdfunding campaign.
Whenever the individual reaches a fundraising milestone or hits their goal, the entire community is able to celebrate with them and feel good knowing that they helped that person reach their goal.
