I just ran across one of multiple websites that encourages people to start campaigning for donations in order to accomplish their goals.  This is called crowdfunding. You may have seen some of them before, from GoFundMe to Kickstarter with IndieGoGo thrown in the middle.  These top 3 websites generate loads of money for people, organizations, bands and the like.

Processing Fee: 2.9% + $0.30

Raised OVER $290m for personal fundraisers



Fee: 5%

Processing Fee: Between 3-5%

Only Creative Fundraising Allowed



Fee: 9%

And there are other websites that do the same, but little are known or publicized. If you would like to know more about how these sites work, I’d suggest you head on over to one of the 3 and do some more in-depth research on it yourself.
