Fund Music Ed is a crowdfunding platform for the arts in schools. Think Kickstarter for school music programs.
A PROVEN MODEL - CROWDFUNDING
The Fund Music Ed platform utilizes the proven and rapidly growing model of crowdfunding to separate it from other online fundraising hubs. The secret that makes crowdfunding so successful is its appeal to the pledger’s altruism and self interest equally. Because of this, crowdfunding has become one of the fastest growing trends in technology.
THE EXPLOSIVE CROWDFUNDING MARKET
Crowdfunding Platforms raised $2.8 billion in 2012 – an 81% increase over 2011. The industry grew to $5.1 billion in 2013, and it is expected to triple in 2014 with new crowdfunding legislation going into effect. Social Causes drive close to 30% of all crowdfunding activity, so this speaks well for the role it will play in education.
