Non-profit organizations require money to stay operational, spread awareness and get the job done, and that is where crowdfunding has really helped.
In 2013, crowdfunding platforms raised billions of dollars — $5.1 billion, to be exact — a third of which went to social causes. Crowdfunding has also helped nonprofits reach new audiences and find committed donors: 28 percent of those who donate to a non-profit cause are likely to donate again, according to an infographic compiled by cloud-based fundraising platform MobileCause.
