GUIDE: Crowdfundamentals — The Beginner’s Handbook For Crowdfunding Success

Download our free crowdfunding guide to make planning your next campaign easy.


Crowdfunding is the practice of raising small amounts of money from a large number of people, typically online. Instead of relying on buy-in from a very small pool of wealthy donors or institutions, successful crowdfunders harness the power of many.

In 2002, when GlobalGiving created the first crowdfunding platform for nonprofits, we turned traditional fundraising on its head and unleashed the potential of anyone, anywhere, at any time to make the world a better place. Now, our key takeaways for successful crowdfunding are available in a single PDF guide, “Crowdfundamentals: A Beginner’s Guide to Crowdfunding Success.”

In today’s digital world, there are almost too many crowdfunding platforms to count, and the market for the crowdfunding in developing countries alone is expected to top $96 billion annually by 2025. That’s a lot of potential, but success requires planning.
