History

The term Crowdfunding is relatively new, but it is something that has always existed. For instance, in 1884 the American Committee for the Statue of Liberty ran out of funds for the Statue's pedestal. Newspaper publisher Joseph Pulitzer urged the American public to donate money toward the pedestal in his newspaper New York World. Pulitzer raised over $100,000 in six months. More than 125,000 people contributed to the cause with most donations being $1 or less.

Currently Crowdfunding (alternately crowd financing, equity crowdfunding, crowd-sourced fundraising) explains the collective effort of individuals who network and pool their money, usually via the Internet, to support efforts initiated by other people or organizations.

Crowdfunding is used in support of a wide variety of activities, including disaster relief, citizen journalism, support of artists by fans, political campaigns, startup company funding, motion picture promotion,free software development, inventions development, scientific research, and civic projects.

Crowdfunding has its origins in the concept of crowdsourcing, which is the broader concept of an individual reaching a goal by receiving and leveraging small contributions from many parties. Crowdfunding is the application of this concept to the collection of funds through small economic contributions from many parties in order to finance a particular project or venture. In essence, Crowdfunding is people helping people achieve great things.

There are a few Crodwfunding platforms on the Internet, most of which are dedicated to new business creation, new products, companies, etc.; however GetYourcase was born with a different purpose. We like people, and we love seeing people achieve their dreams: not just business people or entrepreneurs but everyday people with bucket lists and dreams that are feasible with a bit of help. That's why anybody can create a cause and get backing for it, any cause, for any reason, from weddings or travels to pets or music. Whaterver your cause is you can get backing for it with us. GetYourCause.
