Crowdfunding for Schools (the funding of a project by a large number of supporters who each contribute a small amount): How to use online tools to generate funds for everything you need – including school supplies, events, special projects and more.
Crowdfunding is a type of crowdsourcing in which projects are funded by collecting often small amounts of money
from a large number of people, usually via a website that facilitates the process. Community leaders, PTAs, teachers, principals, parents, and students
of all ages are using the crowdfunding model of Internet fund-raising for their schools.
With a warm “thank you” to the Edutopia Foundation who originally created the material and generously allowed it to feature in the Open Discovery Space Academy!
