Yes, we have partnered with Crowdfund Buzz (THE WORLD’S #1 PR CROWDFUNDING ADVERTISING FIRM) who has offered our members 30 days of free social media outreach and other Crowdfunding Bum exclusive pricing options. The 30 days of outreach is a freebie. No credit card or prior purchase is needed. Just tell them that your campaign is hosted on the Crowdfunding Bum platform. For more information on this exclusive offer, click here.

This is a two-step process. First, provide your WhatsApp phone number while creating a project. Second, whenever you don’t want to make yourself available for questions, log in to your dashboard and check the “do not disturb” box on your creator project form. If you’re a campaigner, don’t forget to let your visitors know when you will be available to chat by posting a schedule on your campaign.

Scaling a crowdfunding platform startup is expensive, especially when trying to stay viable as an online business. Free organic search results opportunities are dwindling under the weight of pay-per-click advertising. You must pay to play in order to remain relevant in today’s online economy. With that said, if you would like to make a donation to further the Crowdfunding Bum outreach, please do so via this PayPal send money link. Use the recipient’s email: [email protected]. Thanks

Project creators can offer NFTs and other digital goods as rewards to their backers for supporting their campaign projects.  Uploading and attaching digital files is a straight forward process.

All crowdfunding campaigns need not be exclusive to Crowdfunding Bum.

When a new member creates a campaign on our platform they will be prompted to select an existing member that will receive 3% of all funds raised. In turn, the Campaigner can now potentially receive 3% unsolicited funding seeds from subsequent new members. Our approach is to give our members the opportunity to become both a donor and a recipient without incurring out of pocket cost.

Sure thing! We know how busy startup entrepreneurs are and we want to help. We need your story, what you need funds for, how much you want to raise, where are you located, your email address, full name and any photos or videos you may have. Our expert writers will then craft a top-notch campaign pitch. You must first register and upload a profile avatar then save to draft a new campaign and add a title. When done submit a support ticket. Don’t worry, we’ll fill in the blanks.

In short, humility. Humility is often in short supply. Everything we have or will ever receive is because of God’s grace and mercy. So count your blessings daily and the next time you encounter one of these unfortunate souls, don’t just pass them by, stop and chat for a while. If you’re lucky, you may learn something about yourself.

Our research shows us that 3% is the sweet spot, not too much not too little.

It’s certainly a possibility but it’s up to the new members to choose who they will donate to.

The 3% pledge restriction is only for those who wish to post a request for crowd funding. Anyone can fund a member. As a member of the community you could give anonymously. So give generously.

You receive all donations regardless of whether you’re overfunded, (less 3% pledge, Stripe 2.9% + 30¢ per successful card charge gateway processing fees and 5% platform fee) will be deposited into your Stripe account. So it pays to be actively promoting your own project and being realistic with your funding goal.

Crowdfunding Bum is based on “you keep each and every donation you receive” concept. In other words, it does not matter whether the target amount has been achieved or even exceeded, at the end of the target date, the member can withdraw the money from our platform.

No! All monetary funding transactions are final. Furthermore, we can’t think of a more crummy thing to do than, taking back a donation from a fundraising campaign, so please don’t ask us to.

Exception: If it is proven that the campaign was a scam or your reward was not shipped to you. We will work with you in the recovery of your donation.

Starting a campaign on Crowdfunding Bum is absolutely FREE. We charge a competitive 10% of the total funds raised as a site platform administrative fee and pay-it-forward give-back contribution. This fee is automatically deducted when you receive a donation – you do not get any bills from us. In lieu of the small fees we deduct; we provide you with the personal one-on-one support, features, a trusted crowdfunding platform and access to a large number of supporters that keep the donations coming. While some crowdsourcing sites claim they are ‘100% Free’ but they actually charge donors. Crowdfunding Bum never charges anything from donors. And there are no hidden costs involved. Stripe charges an additional minimal fee of 2.9% + 30¢ per successful card charge when you receive or transfer funds. Campaign creators are required to have a Stripe account and enable Stripe connect in their dashboard in order to receive donations directly into their stripe account. Be aware that you may incur an additional transfer fee depending on method that you wish to receive your funds once we release said funds. Available methods are bank check, money orders, Stripe.

Because crowdfunding is built on trust, it’s ripe for fraud. We believe our crowdfunding platform addresses this issue by requiring campaigners to pay-it-forward by donating to a community member’s campaign a small percentage of what they raised. We reason that no self-respecting scammer would donate, it’s not in their nature.
