Creativity is an essential part of what makes the internet an amazing place.
For over a decade, Kickstarter has been a place for independent creators to bring
their passions to life. But, if you’ve ever ran you own campaign, you know how
difficult it can be to start out. The sad truth is, 41% of launched projects don’t
reach their funding goal. We want to change that!
We decided to experiment a little and give $1 to every Kickstarter project.
While $1 doesn’t seem like a lot, we received an overwhelming amount of appreciation
from thousands of creators for just believing in them. We remember that exact feeling
of being really excited about the first dollar we raised when we ran a crowdfunding
campaign, and we want to pay it forward.
This is why The Creative Fund exists—we wanted to create a “Universal Basic Pledge”
to support and encourage independent creators from every corner of the world. We
believe everyone deserves a chance. We invite those who share our excitement to
help nurture this creative economy together.
How It Works:
It Takes a Village
Every day, The Creative Fund automatically pledges to every single Kickstarter project
once it launches. We are currently starting with pledging a dollar to every newly launched
Kickstarter project, but we want to see that amount grow.
For every $2,000 we raise, The Creative Fund will pledge an additional dollar to each
Kickstarter project. 100% of this fund goes toward independent creators all around the world.
That’s where you come in—we are now opening the fund to the community! If you want to see
more awesome things in the world and show your support to independent creators, please
consider contributing to the fund.
