9 Crowdfunding Platforms For Good Causes

Crowdfunding presents a real opportunity for those raising money and awareness for good causes. But one of the first challenges organisations face when looking to crowdfund is deciding on which platform to use.

The different fees, funding models, services and sector specialisations offered can make finding the best platform for your project’s needs a real struggle. To help you make this decision, we thought: ‘who better to tell you about the different platforms than the platforms themselves?’
