Crowdfunding in Extension: Leveraging Relationships to Offset Declines in Traditional Funding
Hill, Paul; Swadley, Emy; Esplin, Kaleb
Journal of Extension, v55 n2 Article 2TOT6 Apr 2017
Crowdfunding is a new tool available for Extension professionals and their clients to use to creatively offset the abatement of traditional funding sources. A fund-raising campaign can be set up in minutes, as demonstrated by the work of the 4-H members profiled in this article. Whether there is a need for new equipment or added help for a special event or some other financial requirement, crowdfunding can be a proactive way to ask people for financial assistance. Moreover, crowdfunding can provide validation for ideas; on the other hand, if funds fail to come in, it may be time to conclude an endeavor.
