  • Kickstarter.com

Due to how immensely popular the Kickstarter website is, you may have already heard of it before. With hundreds of thousands of visitors fundraising on a daily basis, Kickstarter is perhaps the first website to check out if you have a project in mind. You do, however, have to sign up. But don’t worry, it’s completely free to use Kickstarter. If you want to be funding for a project, first, select ‘start a project’, and from there, select a category for your project (arts, dance, film, journalism, etc.), then select a project title, and then finally your country of residence.

With Kickstarter, you can also back other people’s projects. This website is essentially a large community of people aiming to get their projects off the ground financially, and there are also people on this site who are willing to hand over the all-important cash. In my opinion, Kickstarter.com is one of the best crowdfunding sites that you can find. So, all this being said, join the community and get your project noticed and you could soon be on your way to creating your dream project.
