Fundsurfer vs Kickstarter
Kickstarter are definitely the goliath of crowdfunding.
They have been going since 2009 and have raised over $4 billion for creative projects!
But they only run creative projects - so charities and projects that don't have a creative output are out of luck.
Also, Kickstarter is all or nothing. That means that if you don't reach your target, you don't get any of the money pledged.
Fundsurfer has additional funding models like "take what you raise" and "open ended" that mean you can take any money pledged, even if you don't reach your target.
So if you don't fit Kickstarter then take a look at Fundsurfer. See how we compare below:
Kickstarter - all or nothing
Fundsurfer - all or nothing, take what you raise, open ended
Kickstarter - credit card
Fundsurfer - credit card, paypal, bitcoin, offline donations
