Civic Crowdfunding Research Project

The Civic Crowdfunding project is an initiative to collect data and advance social research into the emerging field of civic crowdfunding, the use of online crowdfunding platforms to provide services to communities. The project aims to bring together folks from across disciplines and professions—from research and government to the tech sector and community organizations—to talk about civic crowdfunding and its benefits, challenges, and opportunities. It combines qualitative and quantitative research methods, from analysis of the theory and history of crowdfunding to fieldwork-based case studies and geographic analysis of the field.
