A little more about Crowdfunding
For individuals considering a crowdfunding campaign
Running a fundraising event and collecting donations through a crowdfunding website is a popular way for individuals to raise awareness in and money from, potentially, a large audience.
Crowdfunding can allow an individual to contribute to an organisation or important cause in a way that they may not ordinarily have been able to.
People considering crowdfunding to raise money for a charity should:
- contact the charity they plan to support to make it aware of the campaign and seek its approval and support
- consult the charity on aspects such as communications, branding, dealing with inquiries from the public, and how funds raised are distributed
- clarify how the pledged funds will actually be collected and used
- adhere to any policies the charity might have concerning fundraising.
An agreement between the charity and the individual planning the crowdfunding campaign is a good idea. This will ensure both parties are clear about the expectations and responsibilities.
People should also be aware that not all charities will be receptive to a crowdfunding arrangement – it might clash with the charity’s own fundraising plans or disrupt its messaging. Some charities may prefer fundraising via their own methods rather than through external crowdfunding campaigns conducted for them.
The ACNC encourages donating to charity – including through methods such as crowdfunding. But individuals should be mindful of the way they conduct fundraising and how they present their efforts, particularly if it invokes the name of a charity.
