Ethics & Future of Crowdfunding for Communities

Crowdfunding is grassroots community engagement. Its powerful approach to fundraising and brandraising leverages the speed and reach of the Internet -- as well as advocates’ networks -- to acquire more donors and raise more money for community causes. But donors are realizing not all crowdfunding models are created equally when it comes to ensuring that their donation is used effectively. As crowdfunding grows, so do the ethical questions around legitimate "fundraising" and what constitutes them. This discussion will touch on examples of crowdfunding from self-starting "fund my trip" models to the more established national community foundation-led model with profound local impact that raise over $20 million in one day, and the various ethical questions associated with them. Session participants will work together to build a crowdfunding bill of rights by the end of the discussion.
