The Different Types of Crowdfunding

Companies / SME Mar 30, 2021 - 04:34 PM GMT

By: Steve_Barker


Nowadays, there are lots of fundraising activities happening on different platforms. There are various types of pledge drives which are also known as financing or crowdfunding. It is somehow an act of raising cash to finance programs and enterprises. It allows charity events to gather funds from a vast number of participants through social media platforms. More humanitarian forms like Go Get Funding or Go Fund Me for a cause usually for the benefits of sick individuals, Sometimes abandoned or less fortunate who need cash assistance. In general terms and understanding when it comes to business, it is more like you invest and then earn and collect later on business matters. Are you interested in finding out different types of it? You can check it below.

Donation-Based Crowdfunding

It may be called a confidently beautiful deed with the heart. A charity with a cause and purpose. Advocacy for some individuals and groups. Donations gather to help without expecting anything in return.  This kind of crowdfunding is intended for a good reason or those who fundraise for community or philanthropic ventures to build an online platform and allow donors to contribute to a project.

While most well-known charitable institutions will organize this via their online platform, crowdfunding frameworks can benefit smaller organizations and individuals raising funds for personal or specific humanitarian activities. Sponsors give enough money to support a particular charitable project's higher financial targets while not expecting any material reward or monetary value in return.

Peer to Peer Borrowing   

The community provides loans to a business with the expectation that it will pay it back with interest. Although  P2P lending, like bank loans, should be reviewed and need credit verification, it is pretty different as you borrow from many investors. Peer to peer lending is not like other types of financing you may have experienced previously. You are not acquiring money from a banking institution but instead from a person or group of people eager to lend money to eligible borrowers.
Even though it is an increasing  P2P lending group nowadays, they all operate in the same general manner. They only differ significantly in terms of eligibility requirements, borrowing rates, total amount, and duration of payment, as well as their specific customer base. The absence of a mediator who serves as a focal point for acknowledging deposits and providing loans is a distinguishing feature of peer-to-peer lending. Banks are typically assigned to these responsibilities.

Reward-Based Crowdfunding

People contribute to the company or an organization with the intent to gain a non-monetary benefit. Such as commodities or assistance in return for their donation. Reward fundraising enables shareholders to dole out to your project in exchange for non-monetary gains. A rewards crowdfunding crusade can be funded by everyone — relatives, acquaintances, consumers, and business associates. Because personal contributions are frequently small, company owners must encourage as many members as possible to contribute.

This form of financial aid is frequently used for productive activities. It is typically a long-time system in which the more an entrepreneur contributes to your financing, the larger the incentives they will earn, such as rewards on a record cover, trade show tickets, freebies, and so on. A drawback to the company is that the incentive is typically not expensive to distribute.

Profit-Sharing Crowdfunding

Income-based financing, also classified as royalty-based investments or usually an intellectual property A process of raising the assets in which venture capitalists concur to offer investment to a business in return for a portion of the company's continuing overall gross profits. It is a different investment concept than more traditional equity shareholders who have ownership in the company.

Revenue-based financing is an appealing way for businesses to raise capital. A company can effectively increase the needed money without compromising some of its equity or donating a portion of its resources as a guarantee. Besides that, in comparison to borrowing and shares financing, revenue-based financing is a much simpler method with less paperwork. In this type of crowdfunding, business owners can share potential earnings or profits with the community in exchange for immediate funding.

Whatever you may call it sponsoring or financing, as long as it serves good intentions for whatever reason, it will be patronized by the community. Although some of the crowdfunding intentions are related to profit sharing or expecting a reward in return, it is the purpose that matters the most. As the objective is to help and lend money, millions of people will patronize to borrow in lending for their financial needs. Especially the peer-to-peer lending that provides financial support for another user. These users involve private entities, businesses, and government agencies. Individuals can act as both borrowers and lenders. Some of the investors are not after the profit but only want the services or assistance in return. Others allow companies the chance to utilize all components of multiple types of crowdfunding.
