Who Benefits from MicroFundraising?

Microfunding is a many-to-one campaign initiative that is greatly enhanced via the internet.
Self-promotion microfundraising, combined with social networks, the potential for virality via networks effects presents a powerful strategy to produce change and dollars that fund small projects.
Michelle’s story is one of word of mouth and warm relationships, personal appeals and a good story told.
Know an artist, student, teacher, community group or village in need of innovative funding?
